Mental Math

The program uses an ancient tool called an abacus to teach kids ages 5 to 13 how to do math visually. The reason they use a visual approach is that a child's brain can visualize faster than it can just recall from memory. Seeing the beads of an abacus and doing the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division allows a child to see and understand math easily.
