From Our Parents & Students...

To our Jacob, abacus is more of a hobby than a study. That’s how much he loves abacus and the enjoyment has grown over the years as his ability and skills have improved. Naturally, that gives Joshua encouragement to want to learn abacus and be as good as his brother. It’s a great tool for any child to build on for all math related studies. We’re very pleased with the JAMS and would recommend it to anyone! -- Angela Lee
