Brain Child Learning Center specializes in Mental Calculation education through the abacus method.
Students as young as three are taught to perform calculations by manipulating beads on an abacus, then, as their skills develop, they are trained to perform increasingly complex calculations through mental visualization of an abacus. The abacus method not only increases number sense through promoting understanding and flexibility in mathematics, but also stimulates and develops right brain activity. Using the abacus method to perform mental calculations also produces a ripple effect on other disciplines. Research has shown that abacus practice creates improvements in numerical memory, spatial arrangement, and general mathematical reasoning. Class Length: 50 minutes.
