The Mental Math, or Abacus, program plays a key role in our endeavor. While it is designed to enhance the speed and accuracy of arithmetic calculation, its true purpose is to exercise one’s cognitive abilities, which extends beyond strengthening and conditioning a student’s math comprehension skills. This is achieved by engaging students in activities that require them to memorize, visualize, and analyze in class and at home, stimulating both hemispheres of the brain.

  • Abacus – we turn your child into a human calculator

Demonstrations

Students attend Abacus class once a week for a total of 4 classes per month. Each class is 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Evaluation

Our first goal upon enrollment is to identify the skill level of each student. We want them to excel, and placing a student appropriately is a must. We will provide an eligibility exam to determine their entry point. There may be students who are not ready for the program, due to age or skill levels. There are three different entry levels.

  • 1 MPH – Focuses on becoming familiar with single digit numbers through addition and subtraction, by repetition.
  • 5 MPH – Focuses on becoming familiar with double digit numbers through addition and subtraction, by repetition
  • 10 MPH – Studies the algorithms of the abacus and seeks to enhance arithmetic calculation.

Syllabus

In the Mental Math Program, there are circuits (levels) and tracks (lessons). A total of 10 circuits are available, ranging from 1 MPH to 80 MPH. Here is a list of the notable circuits:

  • 1 MPH – Adding and subtracting single-digit numbers using the abacus
  • 10 MPH – adding and subtracting double-digit numbers with combinations, using abacus, finger theory, and visualization.
  • 30 MPH – Adding, subtracting, and multiplying with decimals, up to triple-digit numbers, using abacus and visualization.
  • 50 MPH – Adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing with fractions, up to 5 digit numbers, using abacus and visualization
  • 80 MPH – Adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing with fractions, squares and square roots, cubes and cube roots, up to 5 digit numbers, using abacus and visualization.

The number of tracks per circuit are:

  • 1-60 MPH – 16 tracks per circuit
  • 70-80 MPH – 20 tracks per circuit

Sapience is heavily involved with its community through multiple platforms.

Outreach

The Sapience offers free brain exercise workshops at schools. Sapience coaches will teach children how to use the abacus tool, solve problems with finger theory, and explain the benefits of brain exercise!

Weekly Free Public Community Workshops

We hose free weekly youth workshops, containing a wide variety of engaging activities such as brain exercises, yoga, boxing, art, drama, and more! The purpose is to help children gain or develop interest in something new to build their confidence in learning.

Competitions

We also host and sponsor math competitions to promote the importance and reward of competing.

We have started a new community outreach program, Community Homework Help. Students will have direct access to a teacher in a small classroom of 8 or fewer students, in order to ask questions or seek help on their school homework.

  • This program is 100% free to enroll in, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. You do not need to be a member of a Sapience class to attend.
  • Walk-ins not allowed, as space is limited. Please register ahead of time for a 90-minute block.
  • This is our way of giving back to the communities that have helped support us

Our goal is to highlight the lifelong benefits of brain exercise and explicate its importance to both parents and children.

We want to illustrate that it is much more than a math program.
