Rating: 5Get this abacus! by By A customer My 7 year old daughter still uses her fingers for simple addition even though she is in a gifted math program and has moved on to and understands more complex math. Of course she doesn't have enough fingers! So I ordered this abacus, not sure if she would even understand how to use it. Well she uses it daily and it is a great visual to really see what each number looks like and why we would add or subtract to problem solve. She even has learned some simple multiplication (3x3, 2x4, and 2x11 were the problems she had to solve.) "Times" (mulitiplication) really gave her anxiety, but with this abacus, she really could see "3 three times," "2 four times," and "2 eleven times," as well as allowing her to easily see how multiplication was a communitive property. No more multiplication anxiety! I love this abacus. We have only used it in this way so far, but I am really looking forward to reading the directions and checking out some YouTube videos as another reviewer suggested. I chose this abacus based on all of the positive reviews and am happy with it! It is strong and sturdy and serves it's purpose. I have a 2 year old that loves moving the beads back and forth and it is not flimsy.
