Teaching Material

SAMA was founded in 2018, and it has welcomed more than 30 members since then. The Secretariat recognized there is a demand for quality educational materials and hired specialists to design a series of materials in the last two years. The series of materials includes questions for classroom instruction, certification exam preparation and competition practice. his professional series should meet the needs of teachers and students alike.

The series includes two main categories: abacus and mental arithmetic. Abacus materials covers everything from the basic rules of abacus, 10 regular levels (Level 10 to Level 1), 15 advanced levels (Adv. Level 1 to Adv. Level 15). There are 35 books for abacus, including books on solving for square and cubic roots.

The other main category is mental arithmetic. It covers everything from the basic rules of mental arithmetic, 10 regular levels (Level 10 to Level 1) and 15 advanced levels (Adv. Level 1 to Adv. Level 15). There are 35 books for abacuas and 30 books for mental arithmetic. Between the two categories, there are 65 books in total.

Both abacus and mental arithmetic books can be further classified by their usage. The first type is classroom instruction, denoted by (T). The second type is exam preparation, denoted by (E). The third type is competition practice, denoted by (C). All three types of books can be used independently or jointly. By using the books, members can enjoy the best practice questions in the market and save precious time in making their own questions.

To make the books more accessible, the Secretariat offer them at a price near base cost.
