Basic Operation Skills Improved through Repetition in IPPO

The dilemma of most parents nowadays is on how their child can learn the four basic skills the easiest way possible.
In IPPO, where we do the abacus there is on shortcut in doing those. We have the students do the operations repeatedly with different difficulties.

Addition, Subtraction,Multiplication and Division are skills in which the child should be accustomed to NOT OBLIGED to . Some children when they are asked with 6 x 6 (six times six), they would still go through the numbers from 6 x 1 till 6 x 5 before they can answer you with 36.

In Abacus Education we have the kids do routine computations of the four basic skills, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division, through this they can familiarize and get use to the operations.
