This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
AL Abacus, used with the RightStart™ Mathematics program, now available on your iPad AND iPhone! This abacus will teach, not calculate like the Japanese and Chinese abacus. Perfect for visual learners!
This unique double-sided abacus is grouped in fives and tens for quick recognition of quantities. The second side of the abacus focuses on trading to the thousands.
Learn the facts easily by
* visualizing quantities,
* minimizing counting, and
* developing mental strategies.
Those learning arithmetic with the AL Abacus have a better understanding of basic concepts and need less time to master arithmetic. Although children do enjoy using the abacus, it does not become a crutch. Stan, age 5, was asked how much is 11 plus 6. He replied, “17!” When he was asked how he knew, he replied with a grin, “I’ve got the abacus in my mind.”
App has links to sample addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division lessons as well as detailed use information. VGA adaptor for the classroom settings!
What's New in Version 1.4
I wouldn't complain if it was free. But I spent $2 on it and I'm going to have to just buy a physical abacus. I thought the app would get us through the rest of the week until I could search for the lost abacus this weekend. This is terrible, it takes for! Ever! For it to recognize your finger, so doing a whole math lesson takes impossibly long. We spent two days doing a lesson that should have taken half a lesson time. So much wasted time. I should have just pulled out some counting beans or Legos or something instead.
Great extra abacus for Rightstart Math!
I love that we have the convenience of an extra abacus on our iPad for home and on the go! Thanks!
