Horizon - Brain Development Academy has specially designed abacus course based on the Japanese abacus and Mental Arithmetic System to develop the mental ability of children from age of 04 (four) to 08 (eight) years.
This can be learnt as a game or play. It is an experimental truth that the children at the ages of 04 (four) to 08 (eight) years those passed in three levels after undergoing training for 09 (nine) months at Horizon - Brain Development Academy will be equivalent to the students studying in 3rd (third) or 4th (fourth) standards regular schools.
Performance evaluation is carried at end of each level. After successful completion and passing of level certificates are granted.
TheCourse focuses on developing children's basic motor skills/dexterity, pencil holding, handwriting/drawing of numbers and shapes, subitising (instant recognition of objects and abacus beads as numbers) as well as counting skills (sequential patterns).
The initial focus for this age group is the mastery of number bonds to 5 and 10, and the basic addition and subtraction facts (1 digit pus/minus 1digit). When the number bonds are mastered with the aid of abacus bead images.Gradually, addition/subtraction and division (as well as fraction) are introduced, using the abacus and its concepts.
TheJapanese abacus is used not only to develop their dexterity, hand-eye coordination, attention span, patience, but also to teach them the abovebasic mathematical concepts through logical reasoning of sight and touch.
Workingout school maths problems of various kinds is highly encouraged to develop the children's relational understanding of numbers, objects, andtime, along with the practice of the abacus. Atthe same time, children are encouraged to develop their mental arithmetic and cognitive skills (e.g. via listening problems).
