The Cardboard ABACUS

Our Idea

Who are we?

I am a chemical engineer by education and an educator and innovator by passion. I help students succeed academically by improving their study skills and grasp of content so that they become independent learner.

What are we offering?

I am offering them an artistic creation (a colored ABACUS) that would serve as a reminiscent of the evolution of Math. It is a learning calculator made up of brightly coloured cardboard. It will instil in them an appreciation of how trades were done in medieval times and how the log tables and modern calculators were invented.

Who are we offering it to?

1.Children from the age of three to ten.

2. Visually impaired adults.

Why does that person care?

This is used to promote and practice counting for kindergarten kids. This also helps to build motor skills, colour recognition and early math skills. This would ignite a sense of wonder in all children so that they can discover themselves, their purpose and their passion.

Our distinctive competencies

Distinctive competencies are brightly coloured beads, low cost, lightweight and good size.

    I did find the product of great value, in the field it is targeting. The ABACUS relates to a kid’s imagination, arithmetic skills as well as his curiosity towards history of math. Should be a fun group activity solving math puzzles using the device.
