With the robust technology, most of the children are depending on calculators to solve even the simplest of mathematical problems.By being dependent on an electronic calculator, they are forgetting how to solve arithmetical problems mentally which as a result, has degraded their problem solving ability thus making their brains dull than ever.
With the help of abacus, basic fundamental operations like addition and subtraction are easy to learn . As we know that multiplication is a repeated addition and division is a repeated subtraction so it becomes more easier for the child to understand.
Abacus has proved out to be an ideal tool for everyone as it allows them to calculate easily and quickly with confidence and reliability. The use of abacus is easy to grasp for a new beginner and it also helps in holistic development.
At the initial learning stage of a child it is almost impossible to learn all of the things in a single go. Abacus has this inherent inclination to map the model for the good development of a child's brain. A study has shown that the children which have used abacus in their past could perform arithmetical calculations more quickly and comfortably when they are grownups.
This is due to the fact that they have the golden rule for calculating long figures and it allows them to perform more conveniently in the later stage of their life.
They learn fundamental four operations by simple movement of beads in this instrument. This helps the student to develop a visualization of the problem in the brain and helps to solve the problem without actual use of any aid including the abacus. The students thereby develop an Eidetic memory.
Therefore children who learn the abacus generally become all-rounder and show good performance not only in arithmetic but also in all subjects because of the vast concentration span as compared to others. Abacus training increases the concentration span. Abacus training gives ability to solve arithmetical problem simply by looking at a problem and working it out mentally. On solving arithmetical problem mentally, children become proud on his capacity, grow their confidence, dare to challenge with others, try to make themselves all-rounder and become successful in all areas.
