Certified Abacus coach and eAbacus Hybrid Partner, Urwashi Pamnami has successfully presented the opportunity for her students to participate in the International Abacus Olympiad 2022. This was an online event conducted in Dubai on 10th and 11th of September 2022. For this year, Urwashi had her kids from India, Ireland, and Dubai to be a part of this Olympiad. She trained the students herself and was confident in their knowledge of the field.
The Abacus Olympic Association has been conducting these Olympiads for many years. Over a thousand abacus enthusiasts who came from around 11 countries took part in this edition. The exam is divided into two segments- With Abacus and Without Abacus, i.e. mental mathematics. The students were required to solve 120-150 sums in the designated time, formulated according to their respective levels.
The proficient eAbacus Hybrid Partner, Urwashi Panmani says, “It makes me extremely delighted to see my students thriving in their interested area. I believe that such Olympiads account to test individual knowledge and improve their analytical skills. It allows them to identify and work on their strengths and weaknesses. This not only lets them challenge their ordinary ways of learning but also promotes deeper understanding of scientific facts. My motive to peruse my students in participating in the International Abacus Olympiad is to built their confidence in the game, and thereby helping them to increase their mathematical efficiency.”
Crediting her eight years of experience as an Abacus teacher, Urwashi was sure that her students had what it takes to be a part of an Olympiad at such a grand level. She not only has many licensed teaching centers in India but is also opening them in Dubai soon. With the medium of eAbacus teaching methods, she has definitely tried to make learning easier and enjoyable for the students. It has been proven effective to improve retention among the learners.
The results of the Olympiad are awaited which must be out in a few weeks. Once the results are out, the association will organize an offline celebration in Dubai where the toppers and participants will be felicitated with medals and trophies.
