    Devices to access Abacus Learning Lab

    Students can use any internet-enabled devices to access Abacus Learning Lab.

    These devices include PCs, Macs, android tablets, ipads, and large screen smart phones.

    Abacuses used

    Students can use three types of abacuses to do exercises on the website:

    1. Soroban/Suanpan abacus
        These are the ones with 1-heaven bead and 4-earth beads per digit column.

        Website-only students are not obliged but are highly recommended to purchase their own abacuses if they do not have one yet.
        You can source it from different places.  If you prefer, abacuses are sold through Abacus Learning Lab here.

    2. On-screen abacus
        Even though actual soroban abacuses provide more tactile feedback to learners, students can also use on-screen abacus to learn abacus concepts and operations, and do exercises.


    When students log in to the site, they will see the dashboard where they can quickly access the different categories of courses with tutorials and exercises.

    Students can also access information on their own progress and gained badges in the dashboard.
