FAQ - Abacus Math
What is the abacus method of math?
The abacus method of math is an ancient calculation technique using a tool called an abacus. This method involves moving beads across rods to perform arithmetic operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. In abacus math, each bead and rod represents a different numerical value, and the physical movement of these beads helps in developing a visual understanding of mathematical concepts. This method is known for enhancing mental calculation skills, improving memory and concentration, and offering a more interactive way to learn math compared to traditional methods.
What age group is the Abacus Math designed for?
The Abacus Mental Math Program is suitable for children aged 5 and above. Our experienced instructors create personalized lesson plans tailored to each student's unique needs, making the program suitable for children of all ages and skill levels.
How does the abacus help improve mental math skills?
The abacus is a powerful visual and tactile tool that helps children understand mathematical concepts more easily. By manipulating the beads on the abacus, children can perform calculations mentally, which enhances their mental arithmetic abilities, concentration, problem-solving skills, and overall confidence in mathematics.
Can my child learn abacus mental math online?
Yes, our Abacus Mental Math Program offers online classes conducted via video conferencing, allowing your child to learn from the comfort of your own home. Our advanced online platform features high-quality video and audio, interactive whiteboards, real-time chat and messaging, and screen sharing and document collaboration.
How long does it take to see improvements in my child's mental math skills?
The time it takes to see improvements in your child's mental math skills may vary depending on their age, previous experience, and individual learning pace. However, many parents and students report noticeable improvements within a few weeks to months of consistent practice and participation in our program.
What are the rules of the abacus maths?
Abacus math operates on the principles of place value and manual computation. Each bead on the abacus represents a specific value depending on its position and the column it is in, which corresponds to units, tens, hundreds, and so on.
What is the class size for the program?
We offer small group classes to accommodate various learning preferences. Small group classes typically have a maximum of 8 - 10 students, ensuring personalized attention and individualized feedback for each student.

What is the difference between vedic math and abacus math?
Abacus Math is a tool-based learning method that uses a physical abacus to perform arithmetic calculations. This hands-on approach is particularly beneficial for young children (aged 4-13 years) as it enhances their visual and tactile learning. The use of the abacus actively engages both the left and right hemispheres of the brain, promoting better brain development. It helps in improving concentration, memory, and visualization skills, which are crucial at this developmental stage. On the other hand, Vedic Math is more of a mental math system based on ancient Indian teachings. It emphasizes mental calculation techniques and shortcuts for arithmetic operations. While Vedic Math can enhance speed and mental agility, it might be more abstract and less engaging for younger children compared to the tangible, interactive nature of Abacus Math. In summary, for kids aged 4 to 13, Abacus Math is often considered more beneficial due to its interactive, brain-stimulating nature and its ability to develop foundational skills in arithmetic through a more hands-on and engaging method.
Is an abacus a good way to learn math?
Yes, an abacus is an excellent tool for learning math, especially for young learners. Using an abacus in math education can significantly enhance a student's ability to understand and perform arithmetic operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. It helps in developing a strong foundational understanding of numbers and their relationships. The tactile and visual nature of an abacus aids in improving number sense, memory, and concentration. Additionally, abacus math can make the learning process more engaging and interactive, which can foster a more positive attitude towards mathematics in general.
Is abacus good for brain?
Yes, abacus math is highly beneficial for the brain. Engaging in abacus math exercises can enhance mental calculation abilities, improve memory and concentration, and foster better overall cognitive skills. The practice of using an abacus requires coordination between visual, auditory, and tactile processes, which stimulates multiple areas of the brain. This stimulation can lead to improved mathematical skills, quicker problem-solving abilities, and enhanced memory. Overall, abacus math is not just a tool for calculation; it's a powerful means to boost brain function and cognitive development.
How can I support my child's learning at home?
To support your child's learning at home, encourage them to practice their abacus mental math skills regularly and provide a quiet, distraction-free environment for them to complete their assignments. Additionally, you can make use of the supplementary resources provided by our program, such as abacus math apps and the anzan book.

The mental arithmetic techniques learned through the program can help improve your child's problem-solving abilities, speed, and accuracy in calculations, which can positively impact their performance in school mathematics.
Is abacus good for ADHD?
Using abacus math can be beneficial for children with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). The abacus provides a tactile and visual way to learn mathematics, which can be particularly helpful for those who have ADHD. This tool encourages active engagement and concentration, helping to improve focus and attention span. Additionally, abacus math enhances memory and cognitive skills, which can be advantageous for children with ADHD. However, it's important to note that every child is unique, and what works for one may not work for another. Therefore, incorporating abacus math should be considered as part of a broader educational strategy tailored to the individual needs of the child with ADHD.
