What is ALOHA Math USA, the Contest Sponsor, and Prize all about?
ALOHA Math USA provides math tutoring in a unique way that gives kids life-long skills. For children who need help with math, or are falling behind in school, parents can get math help for their children with the unique mental math tutor program provided by ALOHA-USA.com.
The program is called ALOHA Mind Math, and “ALOHA” stands for Abacus Learning of Higher Arithmetic. An Abacus is an ancient calculator tool used by sliding beads to count. If it sounds too simple to work, you might be surprised to learn that these instructor-led small-class-size math tutoring sessions teach children to solve complex arithmetic questions (think: (128+432-46+514) / 82) in their heads quicker than most people can on a standard calculator. It also helps overcome the fear of arithmetic. This is not the repetitive or rote-learning approach to teaching kids math. The method focuses on a kinesthetic way of learning that promotes development in both the left and right lobes of the brain and improves focus giving kids a head start in all academics.

ALOHA Mind Math was introduced in the United States in 2006 and today ALOHA has its presence in over 18 states, 23 countries and 4,200 locations. With the help of the abacus, ALOHA has created a whole new dimension in the field of teaching math to young children helping them overcome their fear of arithmetic and numbers.
