CMA's Primary Programme is open to primary students from Primary 1 and higher. The programme starts with the basic foundation course in a fun way where the concepts, methodology, usage of the abacus and the fingering movements of beads using both hands simultaneously are introduced. Thereafter, the course progresses to the next higher levels. The next higher levels will introduce the use of formulas and abacus skills learned in basic level to project an imaginary abacus in the student's mind. Numbers will be visualised as beads of the abacus in the student's mind. With practice, the student's mental calculation skills will develop. In the advanced classes, the abacus is withdrawn from the child and they are trained to visualise an 'imaginary abacus' to perform different types of mathematical calculations mentally. By this stage, students will have develop skills that allows them to do mental calculations amazingly fast just by looking at the numbers.
