Course Description:

Abacus Part 2, Addition and Subtraction will teach the student addition and subtraction on the Cranmer abacus using the Counting Method. It is essential that students take this course alongside their TVI, as the TVI must be prepared to monitor learning, supervise practice sessions, and assist in implementing the use of the abacus in the regular classroom.

Learning Objective:

Students will use the Cranmer abacus to master the addition and subtraction exchanges, the addition of 1-, 2-, and 3-digit numbers, and the subtraction of 1-, 2-, and 3-digit numbers.
Important Note:
We cannot overstate the need for supervised practice between viewing sessions, in order for students to master the skills presented in the videos. In addition, elementary students will need support to transfer their skills to the regular classroom.
