We began the program the summer before my son's first grade year in the one week summer camp. The week program was a great kickstart but is not essential as my daughter started mid year in the normal classes and is progressing wonderfully. My son’s math ability was fine for his grade level, but I could see that moving forward, it was going to be more and more difficult for me to explain numbers conceptually  especially since he AND I are both very literal. Now, after 1.5 years of the MMA program, not only does he have an amazing ability to do math in his head, but his pure knowledge and understanding of numbers is beyond anything I would have imagined. The way he can pull numbers apart to solve a problem shows this true understanding. And this didn’t actually take 1.5 years to happen, it became noticeable within the first few months and has developed more and more over time. I use MMA along with another math program (at home) and I’m absolutely positive the other math program could not and would not have grown his knowledge in this way. He would have learned how to add and subtract, but he would not have understood numbers the same way.
Part of what makes the program so great is that the materials are so well done, organized in a step by step process AND provide all the practice you need. Having researched other abacus programs that can be bought online, what I found lacking in all the other programs was the amount of prepared materials. MMA provides exactly what is needed and plenty of it practice, practice, practice. And for anyone who thinks abacus is just "moving beads on a rod” much like punching buttons of a calculator, it is NOT. It is much, much more. When you see your 6 year old child using numerous different formulas (ex. +6 = +10  4) and (ex. 3 = 10 +7) to solve just one problem, you see how much they have to use their brain, they have to concentrate/focus, and they have to actually do math WHILE they are moving the beads on the abacus. It all transfers to such great knowledge and what will definitely be a powerful tool for the future.

Check your calculator speed and accuracy with our kids performing Fingering Techniques, Abacus, and Mental Calculations. Also, notice that they are doing all these calculations with ease! Some of the kids are trained in less than 2 months! Can you imagine their speed will be when they are fully trained???
