Testimonial

I’m perpetually grateful that I stumbled across Life of Math through a comment on a Facebook post, and signed up my boys, 5 & 7, for the LOF online video course four months ago. They have just completed the first level...and the mathematical ability of my boys has grown immensely over the past four months. My 5 year old has progressed from an inability to add single digits without counting on his fingers to mentally computing long series of double digit addition (sums up to 99) and subtraction with blazing speed and accuracy. Math is now their favorite subject, although they are both of literary bent.

Ms. Alpa Patel is a fantastic teacher. Her knowledge of mental mathematics is excellent, she is a clear and amiable communicator, and she encourages the students to perform at their best. My boys find her videos really enjoyable! She has given my boys confidence in their math skills and I have observed real improvement in such a short time.

Incidentally, his kindergarten teacher has recommended that he be evaluated for gifted studies (if he has the requisite IQ score for the program, it will primarily affect his math and science classes), due in no small part, I think, to the mental improvement he has experienced via your abacus mental math program. Thank you for such an amazing course!

If you want your children to have the proper foundation in mathematics, Life of Math is definitely the place to start. Highly recommend!!!!!    Terrance Harris(Parent)

General: This course is designed for 4.5 yrs to 13 yrs old kids.  This is the prime age to develop mental arithmetic skills.  First step towards, whole brain development. 

Recommended age group: KG - 5th Grade

Exceptions: We had few middle school kids doing this course work to have better understanding of number systems, to improve speed and improve mental ability to do calculations.

Prerequisite: 4.5 / 5 yr old needs to be able to recognize and write 0-9 before joining this course

PROGRAM STRUCTURE of VIDEO COURSE

Total Levels: 7

Cost: $159.99 per level

On an average it takes about 4 to 6 months to finish one level of LOM’s Abacus program. It can cost around $650 for our physical classroom or online interactive sessions with live teacher options for 6 months.  In video course option, child can play video explanations as many times as needed for better understanding to complete the level.  
DISCIPLINE is the key for child to be successful in short time when using video courses. 

Physical Abacus tool and material: This option is available only for residents of USA. 

If you need a physical abacus tool and want us to ship it to you, please add $30 in your first payment along with level fees.  This is a onetime buy. 
Also, if you want us to ship material it will be $40 per level.  Shipping is $20.  You can opt out of .pdf assignments in place of physical material.

You can use a digital abacus tool in place of physical one.  There are free as well as some paid apps that allow you to download Abacus tool.  Look for Japanese Soroban.

Make sure you have either physical abacus tool or digital one before you purchase the level. We can recommend some apps if you would like. 

WHAT LOM PROVIDES: Every level will come with video lessons and .pdf assignments that you can print.  It is recommended to print those assignment pages and have your child work on the assignments with pencil. However you can just display them on screen and child works out in a note book.   

Video lessons access time: 4 months to 6 months maximum access will be given per level depending upon the level.  If needed more time, an additional charge of $59.99 per month will be applied. 

What if my child finish the level before 4 months?: Considering child can finish the level before 4 months, upon request for next level to be opened before 4 months, first level access will be removed and next level will be available once payment is received.
  

Would I get refund or roll over fees if my child finishes the level before 4 months?
NO.  Purpose of video courses is to give total flexibility so child can learn on his or her pace.  $159.99 per level is a flat rate for 4 months access to videos per level.
Refund Policy: NO REFUND in any case.  All purchases are final. Whether you use video lessons or .pdf for assignments or not, once you pay there is no refund.  Check out Teaching videos and Work sheets below if you need to before making a purchase.

How much involvement is needed from a parent? : Parents need to make a game plan on when child will be working on the video lessons on regular basis. Few kids require parents to sit with them, few are independent worker, and few takes little time to understand how the process works.  It is all depend on an individual student.  Even in our physical classes or online interactive classes, we have seen a little parents involvement makes a huge difference in child’s success.  We DO NOT EXPECT parent to teach, we want them to provide a strong support to their child.  We want parent to help child play video lessons, and make sure child does the required assignments.

Can we skip any level or start from higher level: Each level is based on previous level’s skills. Every one starts from level 1. 

Jump Start with LOM’s Online Video courses.  Most affordable and most convenient option for your child. Must check out.  

We have the best interest in your child. We want to teach every child the right way and more ways of math and hence this video courses are made at an extremely affordable rate.

Parent/Teacher Guide

Can YOU calculate 489 x 75 OR 425 / 8 without using calculator or paper n pen ???

YOUR KIDS will surely BE ABLE TO...


You may think that if your kid is an A student in math, is there any benefit to your child in learning abacus? YES. This is a whole brain development program. The students will benefit greatly from learning Mental Math Abacus techniques. Child will be relieved of the mechanics of math calculations and will be able to give full attention to more advance / higher concepts in arithmetic plus it is a whole brain development program in which child will comprehend any subject better.

Brief history

                   

  • The first calculation instrument, which nature put at human being disposal was his own hand/ fingers.
  • If not enough: shells, twigs, pebbles, stones and so forth.
  • Man’s need to quantify, to count and to do mathematic calculations– invented computer.
  • Long before the computer, in the Roman Empire, Ancient Asia, and other parts of the  World, man  was inventing easier and faster ways of counting and calculating.  

Abacus: mystery of the bead

                        

 

Abacus or Abaci is an ancient Asian calculating tool that helps modern students as young as age 4 or 5 master essential math skills they will retain and use all their lives. There are many different types of Abacus and different terminologies are used around the world. We will be using the phrase called “Japanese Soroban” in this  program. 

Abacus Versus Calculator

In late 1946 a Japanese postal official highly skilled in using Japanese abacus engages in a contest with a foreign soldier in +, - and x numbers who used most modern calculator.  In four of five contests, the Japanese official with the abacus was faster, being beaten only in the multiplication problems.

Facts about human brain

Our brain is divided into two parts right brain and left brain.

The left brain controls the logical, numerical, analytical, sequential facts and remembrance whereas right brain is responsible for color, music, imagination, senses, rhyming, daydreaming, pattern and overall thinking. Left brain governs the right limbs and the right brain governs the left limbs. Conversely the action of the limbs also has an influence on the development of the brain.  

So, in order to boost overall intelligence of the cerebrum, both the right and the left brain must be trained at the same time.

Creativity will be at its greatest only when both brains are communicating and co-operating with each other.

With the use of Magnetic Resonance Imagining (MRI) researchers have proved that majority of people (90%) in the world use only the left side of the brain for their everyday activities including regular school academics, leaving the right brain under utilized and under developed.

Whole Brain Development

To achieve whole brain development, we use Mental Math/Arithmetic as a medium and an abacus as a tool.

LOM program helps train / develops right brain and hence child gets Whole Brain Development.

Advantage of Whole Brain development

  •  Boost child’s confidence
  •  Improves concentration
  •  Enhance problem-solving capability
  •  Improves memory
  •  Greater listening skills
  •  Provide sense of achievement as the child’s proficiency improves.
  •  Comprehend any subject better.

What is Mental Math?

  • Continuous use of Abaci replaces the physical Abacus in the child’s mind.
  •  With Visualization techniques used in our program , child gradually learn to visualize the Abacus in their mind.
  • Hence child perform calculations without using physical tool and in mind. 
  • We train child to perform Mental calculations.

Advantages of Mental Math Abacus/ Benefits to the child

  


  • Help improve personal and academic performance through curriculum and extra curriculum activities.
  • Comprehend any subject better.
  •  Big and Small calculations independent of calculator
  •  Boost your child’s confidence when it comes to mathematic
