"Have you ever seen how quickly an experienced abacus user in China or Japan can perform calculations? Their fingers fly across the beads and they read off the result before you can even press all the buttons on your electronic calculator. At Yu Ming, we want our students to develop an intuitive understanding of number with the visual and tactile feedback that the beads on an abacus can provide. The arrangement of the beads reinforces their knowledge of how numbers are combined to make up 10, the foundation of our number system. Abacus math is simple yet powerful for learners at all levels. Please help us put together a complete set of abacuses so our students can discover the fun of math for themselves!" To **DOUBLE** your donation use the code REALSIMPLE at checkout. DonorsChoose.org has $25,000 backing the campaign, which runs until the funds are exhausted, or December 30, whichever comes first. hide
