ALTERNATIVE LEARNING

ABACUS


marks-beyound

Mathematics is the subject most of us love to hate. Calculations and playing with numbers are part and parcel of our everyday lives. It is rightly said “Go down deep enough into anything and you will find Mathematics”.

Abacus is used to perform all the basic arithmetic calculations like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. It can also be used to extract the square root and the cubic root. Abacus learning makes math calculation process easy and interesting. Introduction of abacus at the apt age is important as it would then only help the child to master it.

“ABACUS” is a Latin word derived from the Greek word ABAX which means a calculating table. It’s a simple device which originated in Babylon about 5000 years ago. It is still widely popular in Japan, China, the Middle East and Russia. It consists of a rectangular frame, with multiple rods. Each rod consists of beads which are moved up and down with the help of fingers. 

The Abacus and the Hemispheres in the Brain

The brain consists of two hemispheres, the left and the right. The left side of the brain is used for logical processing, mathematic functions, sequencing, and linear processes. The left side of the brain is what is trained first when children are taught math traditionally. The right side of the brain is used for imagination, visualization, intuition, and rhythm. When children are taught the abacus, they are training the right side of their brain. The abacus taps into the need for visualization, imagination, (mental abacus) and intuition. According to Abacus in the Brain, “previous behavioural work has shown that skilled abacus users perform rapid and precise mental arithmetic by manipulating a mental representation of an abacus, which is based on visual imagery.” The numbers on the abacus have to behave in the same way every time no matter which operation is used on them. That type of consistency is the glue needed to solidify a child’s understanding of math. The abstract nature of numbers is hard to grasp for a child, but with the abacus, abstract becomes intuitive and confusion turns to delight. The abacus works because the abacus makes sense.

Benefits of Learning Abacus

Abacus is considered to be one of the fastest ways of calculating and learning math. Faster than a calculator, not only does abacus gift young learners the opportunity to shine in the language of math from a really young age, but it also provides a solid foundation for learning the language of math in primary and high school. Besides enhancing the overall comprehension of math – other important benefits of learning abacus calculation include the following:

  • Boosts better and faster calculation skills.
  • Increases endurance for stress and pressure.
  • Improves problem-solving abilities.
  • Sharpens concentration and observance.
  • Develops confidence and self-esteem.
  • Heightens stronger mental visualization skills.
  • Increases memory power and sharpens overall mental formation.
  • Higher sense of spatial reasoning 
  • Highly developed long-term memory
  • Easily accessed short-term
  • Critical thinking

The science is there and the research backs it up.

The abacus is the way to go.

Can you imagine your 7 or 8-year-old calculating 10 or more numbers in their head, in just a matter of seconds?

Now is the time to get involved in the biggest advantage in childhood education.

Now is the time for your child to become a Math Genie.
