Riders - Level 3

  • Speed Writing (skill) strengthened further.

  • Playing with the numbers writing in varying orders.

  • Introduced to Listening based calculations aimed to improve listening skills.

  • More digits, more rows of numbers and more calculation involving more images.

  • Visualization (skill) practice taken to next level.

  1. Addition and subtraction 

  2. Abacus: 2 - Digit ( 5 rows ); 3 - Digit ( 3 / 4 rows )  

  3. Mental: 1 / 2 - Digit ( 5 rows ); Multiplication: 1- Digit by 1-Digit (Mental)

Skills Acquired    
  1. Fixing images and constantly changing images for the duration of time they remain before disappearing.

  2. Concentration skills further strengthen. The skill becomes available on demand for the child, which is not easy and normal for an untrained child.

  3. Computation manipulating the mental images of the sliders/colours enables the speed to advance, the speed in calculation reaches a new phase, though for mental computation the level is only a starting point.

  4. Listening based calculations is initiated and Listening becomes skill that starts in the level. 

  5. Finger movement exercise becomes more intense.

  6. Brain stimulation – nerve ends of fingers through hands both the left and right brains are stimulated and activated.

Course Duration    

3 months*​

*The student should work at home for a minimum of 10 - 15 minutes for practice / learn the skills

Level completion certificate

Will be issued immediately from the date successful completion of the Level, after completing the work in the prescribed books. The level would take at least 3 months to complete.

Image Flash

Image Flash is the activity which is done to give larger scope for the students to read Abacus slider images representing values using which the students could have extended practice and also better assessment of their skills in reading the values of images at a speed. Flash Cards were used earlier, but with the advent Indian Abacus program now the students have scope to view a limitless number of images. With the usage skills to read the constantly changing image values, students experience better challenges which ultimately enhance their Visio-spatial memory skills necessary to perform better in doing faster and accurate mental arithmetic skills by the image of Abacus. Speed and accuracy in performing Mental Arithmetic by image of Abacus indirectly reflect their Concentration & Memory skills.

The Abacus Tutor during Image Flash session alerts the students to focus on the activity of reading the values of slider images. The Abacus tutor would after saying Start manipulates the sliders of the tool - Indian Abacus – Tutors continuously to make the students read the images one after the other and write down the number-value of each of such images flashed on the on the Tutor’s Abacus and they should write the number values on their note books. The Abacus Tutor actually writes down a series of numbers – Single, double, triple, 4 digits, as the case may be, on a paper first and during the activity, she would manipulate the sliders looking at the numbers she wrote down which the students read and write.
