Abacus

Benefits of AbacusAbacus Mental Math technique stimulates the right brain for the growing mind and helps in cognitive development of the child’s brain. Learning the skills to operate Abacus can easily enable a child to perform Arithmetic Operations of Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Square Roots, Cube Roots etc. with much ease. Children love learning this tool and through our guided Abacus Training they can imagine abacus in their mind to perform rigid calculations even faster than anyone attempting it on a calculators or computer.

Abacus Mental Math technique stimulates the right brain for the growing mind and helps in cognitive development of the child’s brain. The improvement in mathematical skills is said to be due to a coordinated functioning of both right and left hemisphere. As learning and memory in any field is achieved by coordinating and analyzing the different sensory inputs, whether an abacus trainee would also improve the short-term memory as a whole was evaluated in our study. 

Learning the skills to operate Abacus can easily enable a child to perform Arithmetic Operations of Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Square Roots, Cube Roots etc. with much ease.

50 children of average IQ between 5 and 12 years from 2 regular schools and 50 from an abacus institute were evaluated for short-term memory before and after a period of one and two years. The memory tests were taken from Wechsler memory scale, Mini mental state examination, Mann - Buitar visual memory screen for objects. The results showed that the abacus learners at the end of one and two years had a better visual and auditory memory when compared to non-abacus learners.
