Abacus is an ancient computing methodology developed in China, Japan, Babilonia etc. Wherein students learn to solve mathematical problems using a very simple instrument called 'abacus'. Abacus is an apparatus used for counting and calculation.
Basic mathematical operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are solved by simple movement of beads in this instrument. This helps the student to develop a pictorial representation of the problem in the brain and by regular practice; the brain learns to solve the problem without actual use of any aid including the abacus.
The students thereby develop an exciting photographic memory. The user of an abacus is called an abacist. Like any other organ of human body, our brain too needs regular exercising to keep it fit and sharp. (Mental arithmetic)Mathematics provides the ideal exercise for our brain. Mathematics (Mental Arithmetic) is the logical and creative application of mind to tackle a particular problem. More time spent with mathematics would invariably result in a well exercised and a sharper brain. This is simply the reason why a child strong at mathematics is able to tackle other subjects with relative ease.
Abacus is used to teach the children, where they use both the hands to manipulate the beads. In the initial stages, they take the help of the abacus to work out the problems. Gradually the abacus is taken away and the child performs the manipulation of the beads mentally by imagining the beads in their mind. This enables them to achieve a high level of speed, efficiency, accuracy, concentration and increase in memory power. These programs are nothing but scientific brain management techniques that unveil the infinite potential of the human brain and its effective use.
