The Soroban abacus is simple, yet powerful. It remains a popular method of teaching computation skills in Asian countries such as Japan, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, and India.
Wonderkidz is a math enrichment program that teaches math fundamentals while improving focus, concentration, and confidence. The center of our math curriculum is the Japanese Soroban Abacus. The Soroban is a base 10 system that is intuitive and easy to learn. Initially, students learn to manipulate the beads of the abacus to perform math calculations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division). Then students learn Anzan technique ( visualize the abacus - without the physical presence of an abacus.) and are able to perform math calculations mentally.
