Extra Classes at Recreation

Abacus Mental Math Program – 405689

Ages: 5 yrs. to 10 yrs. Fees: resident $135, nonresident $150

The idea of the Komodo Math Program is to teach kids how to work math problems and do the arithmetic operations involved in those problems by visualizing an abacus. The child will learn basic arithmetic starting with simple single digit addition through more advanced operations such as calculation of square roots. The main advantage in using Abacus math is that the student just after a few months, memorizes the image of the abacus in their mind, and can perform calculations mentally, without any tools like pen and paper, calculators or fingers!.

At KOMODO USA Germantown.
