**Combining Mental Arithmetic with Russian Math Algebra!**

Classic Mental Arithmetic with Abacus does not teach the student the power of approximations, common non-decimal fractions or basic algebraic manipulations which, in many cases, can be even more powerful than Mental Arithmetic, alone, in ensuring future success in mathematics and calculations. In fact, many students who only learn Abacus Math, actually have difficulties in school when they start learning algebra and higher mathematics. These students, often, tend not to listen to their teachers, as their teachers often confuse them with alternative methods of calculations.

Therefore, it is imperative that students learn all these techniques, together, in finding the most optimal approach to fast calculations. Only our proprietary program combines the Fast Russian Math Algebra rules with Mental Arithmetic using the Soroban Abacus. Students learn how to manipulate numbers, operators and find the most optimal algebraic algorithms using both Russian Math Algebra and Mental Arithmetic Techniques. This program is only available with the Russian Math – trained tutors.
