The 3rd Generation (2-in-1) Abacus® is made up of columns of 9 beads. It is a new invention that allows students to pick up the technique of abacus faster. There are less formulas (2 sets, instead of 6 sets) to memorise, making it easier to learn. It improves Mathematics and Mental Calculations, response capability, thinking skills, memory power and concentration power. It helps students to relate better to the Mathematics they learn in school.
Who can learn?
3G Abacus 2-in-1 is for children 6 years old and above, adults and even senior citizens who can read and write numbers. This will be most beneficial for students who have difficulties in Mathematics.
What are the advantages of learning 3G abacus?
Like the traditional abacus, this can improve one’s memory and thinking skills and it also cultivate an interest in mathematics in the student. One can also learn how to add and subtract by using abacus and mental calculation very quickly through the course.
Why learn abacus?
This skill has proven to be beneficial in improving one’s mental capability, increasing one’s speed of response, memory power and concentration power. This course has become a compulsory curriculum in many countries such as Taiwan, China and Japan, and countries such as India, Malaysia and Singapore have introduced the curriculum to schools. For adults who have missed out the opportunities to learn this skill when young, it is still not to late to acquire these skills so as to improve one’s memory and concentration powers. Learning this skill will help to strengthen one’s mental power, an important asset in this knowledge economy.
How do I know the benefit or progress of student’s learning?
At the end of each module, students will sit for a test. Students are required to take part in the International Abacus-Mental Arithmetic Grading Examination for both Abacus and Mental calculations according to their abilities.
