Description


THE ABACUS PROJECT FOR TEACHERS

Presented by: DRANREF Foundation
The Abacus Project invites students to explore Asian culture through the world’s oldest calculator. Students build their own abacus using colorful beads and craft sticks and learn the ancient number system to perform basic operations through strategic bead movement. This activity helps to foster concentration, creativity, sound reasoning, and original thinking – all integral to the artistic process. This workshop trains teacher on how to successfully implement this activity in their classroom. The curriculum blends the artistic process with problem solving which makes it an engaging experience for everyone. Teachers will receive lesson plans and assessment tools to evaluate the program.
