Type of Service:

Using the abacus as a tactile learning tool, Abakidz is a program that provides brain training to students of all ages. With a proven curriculum and teaching approach designed by Master Jeonghee Lee, the world’s first and only 11th degree abacus master, any student can learn the arts of Jusan (abacus math) and Amsan (mental math). Research has shown that abacus learning positively impacts working memory and concentration skills, leading to improvement in not only students’ math scores, but also across all subjects. The Abakidz curriculum engages all three learning styles to help transform the way students think about numbers and develop parts of the brain often untouched by conventional math learning. While Traditional math learning engages the left side of the brain, which also processes language and logic, abacus instruction engages the right side of the brain, which processes visuo-spatial information. VISUAL ? Students will learn to see numbers as visual representations rather than arbitrary numerals, allowing for faster and more accurate arithmetic. Flash Amsan, in which students add numbers flashed quickly in front of them, can improve visual processing speed, resulting in faster reading abilities. AUDITORY ? Auditory learners will benefit from Hosan: the practice of doing Jusan or Amsan as the numbers are called out, improving their ability to retain hear information. TACTILE ? Students will develop deep understanding of numbers and arithmetic by physically manipulating the abacus beads and solving problems with a unique hands-on method.
