ABACUS

This concept is popular in China, Malaysia, Australia and now in India. Abacus consists of strings enclosed in rectangular frame. It has beads on the string and each bead has a unique value associated with it.  The Abacus is used to teach children where they use both the hands to manipulate the beads.

In the initial stages, they take the help of abacus to workout the problems. Gradually the abacus is withdrawn and they use only the image of the abacus built-in their minds. This enables them to achieve a high level of speed, efficiency, accuracy, concentration and increase in memory power.
