Abacus is a tool used to solve simple mathematical problems such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. GMA Abacus programme is designed to train children to master the use of abacus to solve mathematical problems. As children have mastered abacus, they will be taught abacus visualization to solve mathematical problems without the use of abacus. This is called Mental Arithmetic. Mental Arithmetic has been proven to scientifically enhance learning and concentration, as well as memory, and creativity for children.
Abacus mental maths courses are suitable for children aged 5-14 years with all abilities. Classes are designed to provide each child with individual support to maximize their potential. Each student starts a foundation class to learn the basic principles of the abacus and will advance to the next level in accordance to their progress.
