About the Abacus tool In the initial stages, kids are acquainted with the Abacus as a physical tool. They are taught that:
- The abacus consists of two parts—the upper or heavenly deck and the lower or earthly deck
- Each deck comprises several vertical rods each with a set number of beads
- Each vertical rod of the upper deck has 2 beads while that of the lower ones have 5 beads each
- The upper deck beads are all valued at 5 and the lower deck ones at 1
- The two parts are divided by a reference bar
- Each bead touching the reference bar is taken as counted
While these form the basics of understanding how to learn Abacus, the use of the Abacus requires precision. Kids need to be taught finger techniques to enable them to understand how to use the beads properly.
An online/ virtualAbacus is an online representation of the physical Abacus wherein kids use the mouse to move the beads. Using the online Abacus too forms a part of our Abacus classes.
Virtual Abacus—a short note
Instead of using a physical tool, kids are taught to visualise and create a mental image of the Abacus. Finger techniques taught in the earlier stages of the Abacus program help to aid the kids in the use of this virtual Abacus. To complete a complex calculation using the virtual Abacus successfully, kids have to use both their right and left brains simultaneously. This, coupled with finger movements, enhance the blood flow to the brain thereby nurturing further brain development. Kids become adept at solving mathematical problems in their minds and this increases their confidence and self-worth.
