History of Abacus


Abacus is a simple tool used for performing rapid arithmetic calculations. Calculations based on abacus were created in ancient times and now are widely used in brain development programs. It consists of a rectangular frame with columns of sticks or rods along which counting beads can move up and down in the columns.

 One of the most popular calculating method from ancient times.

 Children do fast calculations in their mind by visualizing Abacus bead movements.

 Researches proves that Abacus learners uses both sides of the brain- left hemisphere & right hemisphere.

 Highly effective in improving the concentration level of children.

Mental Arithmetic

 'Mental Arithmetic' is a term used in Abacus for the calculations done in the mind.

 Even large numbers can be calculated in the mind within seconds

 'Mental arithmetic' improves student's imagination skills

 Effective in cracking competitive time-based tests.

 Mental calculation enhances the concentration level of child.

Advantages of Abacus

 Positive attitude

 Improves imagination skills

 Sharpen memory power

 Boost confidence

 Personality Development

Soroban Method

Soroban Abacus is the traditional Japanese model of Abacus used for performing basic arithmetic operations.

Soroban is a horizontally structured Abacus consisting of a rectangular frame, which comprises of upper and lower blocks each with vertical rod with beads. Each Rod represents a place value, and the movement of these beads represent the count. The upper-block consists of only one bead per rod and the lower-block consists of four beads per rod, each valued differently. The design of Soroban is based on precise movements that are simple and logical, yet can achieve complex mathematics with ease.

Key to success

Like any other skill, practice is the key factor in mastering the Abacus. To become a skilled operator, children are required to practice the concepts taught during the lesson for about 10 minutes a day. The longer they practice, quicker they progress in performing mental calculations. This is why our Abacus centres conduct classes only once a week, allowing time for students to master each new skill through practice, before moving to the next.
