### Abacus - Activating the Right Brain

Abacus is a method of mental calculation. Performed on a virtual image of the abacus formed in the mind, it is based on the principles of abacus calculation. In this case, the abacus is merely a tool, through regular practice of which children are able to visualize and internalize the image of the abacus in their mind.

### How fast can it be?

By activating both sides of the brain, all students can achieve calculation speeds that were previously only achievable by math geniuses.

As a matter of fact, in Dec. 2000, a first-year student and his 2 sisters broke 4 Guinness world records with this very same method of calculation.

### How can it benefit my children?

Image Abacus trains the students to use the left hemispheres (logical side) to manipulate the virtual abacus (image) on the right hemispheres (abstract side). This unique exercise fosters and strengthens the brain function and can improve the following areas:
In short, image abacus training will help any child to retain knowledge more effectively and become more proficient in any subject, especially math.
Introduction to Abacus

### What is an ABACUS?

before the invention of a calculator it would have been really difficult to do sums for archeology, experiments or for mere business purposes. In the earlier days a man’s hands and the pebbles used to be the counting device and there were no numerals.It was in this context that the abacus and the counting tables were born.

### Abacus Origin

Origin of counter abacus with strings is however unknown but it was used in India, Egypt etc. Later China played an essential role in the development.

### Abacus Teaching

Before the electronic calculators have hit the common people, the abacus was used as a teaching aid and comprehensive guide to computing for the beginners.

### Abacus in Various Cultures

The word abacus is not new to anyone. It is the most ancient tool and the wondrous thing about this is that it is still used in different parts of the world, still fits in this fast world and satisfies the requirements of the world.

At that time the abacus was not like the one we see today rather it was a flat hard surface either of wood or stone on which sand was spread and stick or finger was used to write letters on it.

Since the dawn of human beings on this earth human beings have encountered with too many situations in which they have to calculate and manipulate to survive in this world. Although those situations have got complex with the lapse of time and led to many new inventions for the convenience of calculations. This development process has many stages. It relates back to the prehistoric time and the first stage of development involves the construction of abacus. Read More....
