An Innovative Evidence-Based Nonprofit Teaching Advanced
Early Childhood Math to Disadvantaged Children

“Children from low-income families, on average, demonstrate lower levels of competence in math prior to entering school, and these gaps persist or widen as schooling continues.  Providing these children with high-quality mathematics instruction early on can provide a foundation for future learning and can help address long-term systemic inequalities in educational outcomes.” - National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine

Why Brainacus Works

The two sessions per week two-month Brainacus program begins with a unique Asian-based introduction to numeracy that was developed based on practices prevalent in countries that lead the world in math scores. Brainacus adapted the Asian advantage in language and instructional methods so that our children and country could benefit. After students complete our unique number identification and place value instruction, they benefit from learning abacus math and performing advanced addition and subtraction exercises. The program was tested and validated over five years with disadvantaged four and five-year old students. Being an evidence-based global best-practices program, the Brainacus method is substantiated by published papers in professional journals.  Click Here to read citations.


“Abacus skill has a positive effect on subsequent mathematics and reading grades.”  American Journal of Education

"Opportunities for preschoolers to learn mathematics are currently inadequate, particularly for those in low-income groups...To ensure that all 

that all children enter elementary school with the foundation they need for success, a major national initiative is needed to improve early child mathematics education." Everyone Can Succeed answers this call from The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
