International school of mental arithmetic for children aged 5 to 12
We offer the Mental Arithmetic program for schools and educational centers as part of extracurricular activities and part of the school curriculum. Our students learn mental arithmetic online and offline around the world.
Mental Arithmetic offers a proven means to developing a child's academic abilities and creative thinking skills in a balanced way.
The programme begins by teaching each child to use an abacus, an ancient tool that allows tactile interaction with mathematics. Once the abacus has been mastered, each child learns to do calculations in their head by forming a mental image of a number on the abacus. The result is each child is able to add, subtract, multiply, and divide even very large numbers mentally.
Peer-reviewed studies with control groups have shown that the Abakus program leads to improved academic results and increased performance in foreign languages.
Abakus Mental Arithmetic Programme, involving mental calculations, stimulates both the right and the left hemispheres of the brain and helps children strengthen their visualization skills
The Abakus Programme can be implemented in 2 ways:
Abakus Center prepares teachers and provides training every year.
We work closely with our schools, from programme design to the certification of a teacher with the professional development qualification to help them deliver courses on the best possible level.
