The Abacomps program is designed to help children ages 5 & up advance their skills in mathematics, general memorization and retention through software programs and Abacus mathematics to bridge the gap between the fundamentals of math to the more advanced method of mental mathematics/calculations. Watch your child’s confidence sky-rocket as they learn to solve complex arithmetic, even mentally, at speeds surpassing the use of a calculator!
The Abacomps program is designed around the ultimate goal of having a child feel comfortable and confident in their mathematic abilities. Children start to experience discomfort and even disdain for math through discouraging remarks from fellow kids and even adults which leads to a long lasting dislike for any kind of mathematics. What Abacomps wishes to achieve is aid and development for those who feel their math abilities are under par with their classmates. Abacomps can help children with low confidence with the goal to raise their confidence in math and no longer be intimidated but eager to progress and showcase their strengths.
Our in-center computer lab gives us the ability to further develop your child’s skills by our Abacomps program as students come in 2-3 days a week, or more, for in-center learning along with enrichment through homework, Learning Center games, testing and encouragement. Your child can recall long series of numbers or complex equations in their head as they begin to find the answer because of memory retention. Memory retention betters with every class as your child gains achievement stickers and you can see your child grow and better their math abilities by our Abacomps method.
Mathematics is an important skill that one will be using from early childhood up to adulthood due to how necessary it is in the real world. The earliest that it is possible to begin the foundation of math would be best as children are very impressionable and new information that they gain through repetition and hands-on learning will stick and better as they grow. Abacomps is structured around using more than just sight to perform calculations but with hearing and touch. The combination of these senses allow children a more involved method of problem solving as they manipulate abacus beads to solve and “feel” the solution. They “hear” the beads clicking together uncovering the answer as they finally “see” the result that they have produced through a more active approach that used 3 of their 5 senses resulting in a direct approach to math. Abacomps wishes to teach children that mathematics can be fun through the appeal of being more hands-on and having it be done literally by their own hands.
Abacomps differs from other means of aid in that Abacomps strives to understand mathematics through its roots, its very foundation of what makes the building blocks of math i.e. addition. By understanding mathematics from beneath, there is a better digestion of the concepts and logic used in mathematics and why they are as such. An in-depth comprehension of the base foundation of math makes problem solving and number interpretation less problematic and daunting due to an expanded view of how math works and how to make it work for one’s self.
Abacomps was founded with a dream of helping others see and show their mathematic talents, how numbers develop the world around us and how we can understand and master concepts of math thought unreachable. Mathematics is a staircase that is to be ascended one step at a time, no matter how long it takes or how it’s done but what matters is the goal we have set and the effort we have made to reach the top.
Mathematics is a subject that many can understand but many despised growing up from elementary school to college, all due to a rough start understanding basic concepts as others progressed. Through regular class attendance and enrichment that continues to develop and burgeon the innate thinking of a child, mathematic problem-solving is attempted and mastered through a base understanding of how math begins and works. With the combination of enrichment and encouragement, a smoother and less frightening approach to math will be possible.
What Abacomps hopes to achieve is that math, like other subjects, can be enjoyable but only when the learning process is hands-on, active and more importantly when the student understands what to do. Through its multitude of learning aids, Abacomps will dissect the very foundation of what math is and gain knowledge in how it works and can work through more active methods to discover hidden abilities.
“Last summer, I started learning abacus from Abacomps.com and suddenly math became even more exciting for me. Abacus is a lot of fun. It is even faster than using a calculator!...[Now] math is like playing with numbers. Also, abacus makes me understand math better. [It] has helped me visualize negative numbers rather than memorizing rules. I can just see it in my head.”
Our kids look forward to their abacus classes more than almost anything else, and they are constantly practicing at home on Abacomps.com. In their enthusiasm for this method, they even ask him for extra homework (yes, there is homework!). It’s always nice when your kids are passionate about something. But as parents, we also need to see results. Well it didn’t take long--our results became immediately apparent in math classes at school.
