During the programme, children are taught how to move the beads on the soroban from numbers 1 to 10 million. Gradually, we teach them to add, subtract, multiply and divide sums on the soroban. In parallel, we teach them to visualise the movement of the beads, hence creating mental imagery of the beads to calculate the sums using the 4 rules.

For the younger children or children requiring confidence in large number, we recommend Springboard level. Once the Springboard level is completed, you have a choice to continue with Level 1 and beyond.

The children will have adequate practice from the workbooks provided. This work provides ample preparation for 11+ entrance exams, National SAT exams and secondary school maths. This programme is an excellent way to start building your child's confidence in Maths and then progressing to Maths preparation for 11+ and secondary school.

However, the progress is only achieved if parents assist the child to complete daily practice for at least 10 minutes.
