Turning counting into business

Abakus Europe team at your service / Abakus Europe is a franchise helping children to handle maths
Abacus Europe is a franchise which is counting on turning mental arithmetic education into a thriving business.

Math is the achilles heel of many school students. Teaching math is increasingly coming under scrutiny from top decision makers. Recently British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said he will make improving math teaching one of the key priorities of his government. Improving arithmetic skills will be a vital part of that. This is why a teaching system that combines learning with games to improve arithmetic abilities of students should be in demand. Abakus helps from drowning of numbers. 

The model

The Abakus Europe franchise is part of an international school of mental arithmetic, Abakus Centre in London. It has 300 educational centers in 25 countries serving 30,000 students. It is one of the first companies specializing in mental arithmetic courses bringing this methodology to Europe, combining the curriculum with brain fitness exercises. 

The methodology pursued is one of developing skills through games. It serves as a good business opportunity for those wanting to work both online and in stationary format. Income is also derived from the sale of books and counting frames. Mental Arithmetic is a tested way of developing a child’s academic abilities and creative thinking in a balanced way, allowing them to reach their full intellectual potential.At the beginning of the course, an abacus is used for children to learn the techniques. Later, children learn to do calculations in their head by forming a mental image of a number on the abacus and can do all mathematical operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) with any numbers in mind.
