Pictures of the Mac’s Abacus station in the children’s play area and of frequent patron, Owen, who made all 16 Bead Patterns on Mac’s Abacus.
from TJ Alexander, Sunapee, NH:
Ray Herrmann’s "mission in life" is to help kids learn math.
Ray is a retired engineer and grandfather who got a brainstorm to use an abacus as a fun way to get the child's attention and learn the basic math as a game.
As a life long friend I have followed this projects development over the past 5 years and have been very impressed with his enthusiasm and attention to the many details of both the physical design aspects of the abacus as well as curriculum development.
As a former teacher myself, I can highly recommend this fun tool.
Using this abacus reminds me of QiGong exercises but for the mind.
P.S. I have a Mac's Abacus for my grandson and we love to play together with it.
from Francine Cochran, Sanbornton, NH:
This is a wonderful learning tool for children. It's the perfect size for small hands and the shape of the beads makes the abacus fun and easy to use.
