In launching ALAMA USA, the team has initiated a global effort
to promote mathematical skills by adroitly blending well-known
time-tested practices with the use of ABACUS. The Abacus Based
Program endows the child with the competitive edge and enhances
his/her ability to observe, sharpen memory powers and develop
speed and accuracy to effectively confront the challenges of
growing up. Needless to say, the simple tool called 'ABACUS '
helps children to solve mathematical problems in a playful
environment and rids the math phobia commonly found among them.
Not content merely working with numbers ALAMA also inculcates
analytical thinking by solving word problems. Apart from
teaching basic arithmetic like addition, subtraction,
multiplication and division by moving beads of the ABACUS, ALAMA
also helps the children solve problems rationally. Contact the
