Abacus Mind Math Level 1 Workbook 2: Excel at Mind Math with Soroban, a Japanese Abacus
Soroban, the Japanese abacus is a very useful visual tool that helps children ‘see’ numbers as beads while calculating. Soroban perfectly fits with the base 10 number system used at present and provides a systematic method (formulas) to follow while calculating both on the tool and in the mind. Mastering of this tool will enhance your child’s basic math comprehension, speed and accuracy. In general, when children practice mind math, they get a very important sense of achievement that helps raise their confidence as students. You can also see an improvement in their concentration, tenacity, memory power and listening skills.

This system has transformed the way my daughter views numbers, her capabilities and intelligence, her school experience, and our relationship. She has had trouble with number concepts and operations since she started school, and she is now third grade. We spent hours every night doing the one or two sheets of homework she was assigned. She didn't understand grouping, number lines, those drawings of blocks, lines and dots, the number machine--none of it. She tested "within normal range" at school, but anything she couldn't count on her fingers was difficult for her to comprehend. We dreaded homework every night, and more often than note one or both of us ended up crying. It was creating a rift--I felt so frustrated and powerless, and I lost my patience often. I was worried that she was reaching the age that she would fall behind the other kids, or she would just push it aside rather than struggle with it, with me. I knew i had to give her a different way to look at numbers.
When I was in high school, someone came to our Japanese class one day and taught us how to use the soroban (abacus). I learned how to use it in about ten minutes, and I remember we were doing lots of different operations within the class period (not that I remember them now). So I found this system online, and purchased it, as well as a soroban.
For a few weeks, she fought me--she didn't want to take the chance of failing at this too. But once she tried it, she got it in a snap. Within one session, she was able to use the abacus to add and subtract numbers she would have struggled with on paper, and would have been impossible for her to do in her head. We spent extra time on the abacus part, so that she was extremely comfortable and confident when we moved onto mental math. We have only been doing the mental math section 10-15 minutes a day, three days or so a week, and she can already add and subtract pretty much any non-carrying number less than 100--in a series of three to five equations (eg. 10+25-30+2-1+17). In her head! I have to use the abacus to keep up with her.
I am so proud of her, and thankful for this system.
All of the books are well written, nicely illustrated, easy to read, understand and follow. They are all well worth the price paid. Just what I have been looking for to learn the abacus and mental math myself, so I can teach it to my grandson.
Level 1 covers 20 weeks of instruction with daily exercises and Level 2 covers an additional 22 weeks of lessons with daily practice problems..
The workbooks are just that - workbooks to be used for the daily exercises. The Instruction Books are very important because they cover the "how to" part of the course with easy to follow, step by step illustrated instructions.
Before ordering I thought the prices for the instruction books were a little high, but after reading them I realized they were worth the price paid.
By comparison, here in the SF Bay Area, there are private schools that teach the Abacus and Mental Math. The going rates are $17 to $20 for a once a week 1 to 1 1/2 hour class - plus additional charges for books and materials. Way too expensive for me.
For just a fraction of that, I can purchase the Abacus Mind Math books and study whenever I want at home.
Thank you Abacus Mind Math.
I grew up, having been taught the use of the soroban.
This book series has been quite valuable in the review of the abacus for myself and teaching it to my family.
The instruction books and the workbooks for each level are well written with much practice to accompany each lesson.
The multi sensory way of learning mathematics by means of the soroban makes a great impact upon your learning. Visual, hearing the problems, motor memory by moving the beads and sensory by means of your hands.
Even if you've never used an abacus, the instruction books will help you to understand the theory and use before you teach it to your own children.
