Abacus is a simple tool used for performing rapid arithmetic calculations. Calculations based on abacus were invented in ancient times and now are widely used in brain development programs. It consists of a rectangular frame holding a number of vertically arranged rods, on which beads slides up and down.
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' 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.

Soroban Abacus is the traditional Japanese model of Abacus used for performing basic arithmetic operations.
Soroban is a horizontally structured Abacus that has 2 blocks. The upper block constitute of only 1 bead and lower block constitutes of 4 beads in each rod. The red, movable buttons are called beads and the movement of these beads represents numbers.
Like any other skill, practice is the key factor to master Abacus. To become a skilled operator, children have to spend at least 30 minutes a day practising during the course of learning. After taking a new lesson on Abacus, students must practice the same content for at least 3 days before taking the next lesson. This is the reason why our Abacus centres conduct classes once in a week rather than conducting the classes multiple times throughout the week.
