What will be taught? Little students will be introduced to a unique concept of doing calculations on Abacus and as a result, mentally. They will learn basic calculations on Abacus, involving 1,2,3 digit numbers (depending on each child's readiness), do mental calculations based on this concept and visual exercises. We will also play logic games and do other fun intellectual things. The classes are very engaging and fun! Students love the idea of seeing numbers in a new way that allows them to...
No homework unless parents/child wants to practice more. In this case the worksheet or a video of the exercise will be sent to the parents.
Each student will need an abacus (Soroban of 13, 15 or 17 rods) for every classe. Please, order it ahead of time.

For best results, please use laptops or stationery computers for this class. Tablets won't provide a good view for the student and the teacher. Students should sit at the table in a quiet environment and have a good view of a part of the table surface where abacus is. As mentioned above laptops work the best for this. Students would need one sheet of paper and a pencil for every class. For the first class students will need an Abacus, black Sharpie, a sheet of paper and black and any other color (their favorite) markers for drawing.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
