It’s Not Just About Winning

My little one started Abacus when she was in Kindergarten (2015). By mid-1st grade, her enthusiasm began to waver. However, she won a prize at the 2016 JAMS abacus competition, and that made her want to continue for another term. The excitement of winning a prize quickly wore off and she again lost interest, so ... Read More

From Our Parents & Students...

Math has always been a problem for me, and at 27 I struggle with multiplication tables and need a calculator even for simple computations. I’ve always gotten by in math, as long as I had a calculator and enough time, but it was always a struggle. However, by the end of an hour I was adding and subtracting three digit numbers in my head! The improvement I saw in the short time Miwako spent with my college math class I believe that learning the abacus now is an essential piece of my education. Thanks again! -- Jocelyn Amy, Student, Oregon College of Arts and Crafts
