Abacus maths is an easy, efficient and fast way for children to master mental arithmetic.
Brain Up is a unique mental maths programme offering to help children excel at mental arithmetic. We base our curriculum upon both traditional and multimedia teaching methods in order to stimulate both sides of the brain using visualisation of the abacus. Abacus maths is an easy, efficient and fast way for children to master mental arithmetic.
Based in Milton Keynes, we offer abacus mental maths tuition in small groups. This programme is suitable for children aged 5-13 years and all abilities are welcome. Our classes are designed to provide each child with individual support to maximise their potential. Each student will start in our foundation class to learn the basic principles of the abacus and will advance to the next level in accordance to their progress; this will be assessed regularly through quizzes and tests.
The optimum time to learn the abacus and mental arithmetic – as well as most other things - is from the tender age of 5. Children at this age have good control over their motor sensory skills and like to experiment and manipulate objects. Their ability to reason logically, curiosity and possession of a hungry appetite for acquiring new skills explains why they are able to absorb knowledge like a sponge absorbs water.
