Our Abacus Mental Math Program
Our abacus mental math program is taught by our sister company, Markham Abacus and Mental Math. The program has helped hundreds of students achieve academic success in math. The program has also had tremendous success in the Canada Abacus-Mathematics and Mental Arithmetic Competitions, with numerous champions.
Abacus & Math
Abacus is an ancient calculation device that is now primarily used to help children learn mathematical skills, and develop their mental math skills. Using abacus to learn math helps children to easily grasp concepts by presenting the numbers and their relationships as concrete beads instead of the regular abstract arithmetic processes.
In addition to helping children improve their mathematical skills, recent studies have shown that the abacus method of mental calculation, known as abacus mental math, also creates a ripple effect that benefits other disciplines. All the skills that children accumulate from our program will benefit them for life.
The curriculum used in our abacus and mental math classes are specially customized for Canadian students ages 4-13, while also meeting the international standards set by the International Abacus Education Research Institute. We teach in small classes, with a ratio of 5-6 students per teacher, to ensure your child gets the attention he/she needs.
The standards for abacus and mental calculation are set in 12 levels. Levels are ranked in descending order (12th level is the lowest level and 1st level is the highest).
