The Soroban is the Japanese abacus.  It enables you to add, subtract, multiply and divide much faster and more confidently than you can with a paper and pencil - and with practice, as quickly as a calculator.  It is part of the Japanese national maths curriculum, and used in several other nations that achieve high numeracy levels.  Over time, by using Soroban, students build a mental picture that enables excellent mental calculation ability.

​In this workshop, you will learn how Soroban works and its benefits, by using a Soroban for yourself.  
Those who have learnt Soroban and those who have never learnt Soroban are all welcome. (Children age 7 and over are welcome too.)


During the workshop, we will have a demonstration by 3 Japanese Soroban Champions too.  It's a very rare opportunity to be able to closely see their amazing mental calculation ability and speed.
