Although calculators and computers have largely replaced manual human power in computing numbers, learning abacus can be beneficial for every child as it is instrumental in developing the whole brain and hence general life skills. Using the abacus requires co-ordination of the main nerves of the human body, such as sight, sound, and finger movement which will induce the growth of brain cells. The mind undergoes three main stages of development, namely physical contact, logical explanation, and visualisation. Throughout the process, the abacus acts as a medium that connects these three stages. More than 80% of the world's population is right-handed and right-handed people normally have more developed left brain and less developed right brain. The creativity side of the right brain is more than a thousand times that of the left brain. Learning abacus will stimulate the development of the right brain at an early age.
