Abacus based mental arithmetic skills enable children exhibit their Concentration, Visualization and Listening skills, which are the basis for the children trained in abacus computation to excel in doing fast and accurate mental arithmetic. Indian Abacus company with its stature as the first to introduce Abacus education in India 13 years ago has been able to establish an enviable record in developing lakhs of children with these extraordinary skills. Abacus based calculations and the training to achieve the skills have become very essential and every parent today likes to provide opportunity to his / her children to learn these skills.
The brain skills that the children acquire take them ahead in their academic performances as these skills help children in learning faster, enable better memory and escalate their confidence levels distinctly. Indian Abacus company with the thirteen-year-background of knowledge and experience has developed advanced versions of the abacus device, the strong features of which enhance learning and memory skills further in the students trained in Indian Abacus program. Indian Abacus company with the sophisticated design and features of the device and ideally matching and child friendly program promises to deliver much enhanced skills keeping the children at a better comfort level than ever before.
As an inventor of the devices and also as the head of the organization I am greatly pleased to offer the program to the children of the age group 5 to 13 years, who can have access to brain skills of much enhanced quality using Indian Abacus device and the program which together take abacus skills to a new level. I consider it a great honour to be able to continue to serve in the children's education from the new position. I wish all the children a great learning experience from Indian Abacus company.
To my mind Education always remained a greatly respected need. The inclination to take up Education as the service-oriented avocation was thus born in me. The opportunity to be associated with Kids education and that too in a field, untouched by others gave a great feeling. From the day one Abacus & Mental Arithmetic fell on my lap, I considered it a God-given opportunity and started pursuing the same with great devotion, respect and care, such that I make it a possession of every child in the country / world. Offering education to children is a direct contribution to future of the country. It is a great feeling to be one of the contributors to the country's future. It gives utmost satisfaction.
Chairman & Managing Director
The knowledge and the experience of the Inventor Mr. Basheer Ahamed (also the Chairman & Managing Director of Indian Abacus Pvt. Ltd.) is immense in the field of Abacus and MentalArithmetic Education. More than 13 years of rich experience in understanding the nuances ofthe concept, program structure, administering the program as classroom sessions have all goneinto his invention. The continuous back end study of the tool, program content, ‘learning skills' ofdifferent children in different locations and environments have all gone into the invention andimplementation of the Indian Abacus & Indian Abacus - Digital, both Student 's and Teacher'sversions and the program. The fast spreading of the market for Abacus skills and the need formatching the growing demand in terms of the capabilities have all attained the fruition with theinvention of the Indian Abacus. The experience of the inventor is vast and could thereforesuccessfully bring out the Indian Abacus tool for largely upgraded results.
The invention of Indian Abacus & Indian Abacus - Digital, both Student's and Tutor's versions provides the right answer to the long lasting call for “Generation change” with the evolution tobring in greatly desired “Visualization” a vastly impacting skill factor. The birth of Indian Abacus & Indian Abacus - Digital, both Student's and Teacher's versions is a solution to win over theinadequacies and the limitations that hindered the effective usage of the abacus to bring out thebest of skills in children. The material, design, manufacture which are greatly different in theIndian Abacus & Indian Abacus - Digital, both Student's and Teacher's versions, brings in agreat change in the Features, advantages and benefits of the invented tools.
Indian Abacus for student: Its improved design features makes possible more qualitative visualization than the conventional Abacus which does not offer required scope for the visualization to attain its pinnacle. The colour images projected by the operation of the upper or lower sliders through their upper and/or lower movements towards the bar actually represent the value positions. The colour images and the representing values are very clear and more impacting in the Indian Abacus.
The design features, advantages and the benefits explain the winning edge of Indian Abacus over the Conventional Abacus.
The Indian Abacus – Digital: The counting tool enables calculations done manually using the abacus independent of the computer too at the same time having the facility to have the display of answers on the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen of the tool, which is integrated with it. The compatibility of the tool to have interface with the computer enables scope for posting the results (answers) in the Internet site. Indian Abacus – digital is thus a manually operable tool using which one can do fast and accurate arithmetic calculations and the user can post the results / answers in the internet site. Instant evaluation of the results of the assessment would be available. This tool is an ideal aid for online assessments, verification, evaluation leading to certification. Since working to LEARN and PRACTICE is possible on this tool in the off-line mode too, the student practicing to do a number of sums could check the answers on the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display). The Indian Abacus – Digital is thus ‘Indian Abacus' with the greatly augmented facility for visualization through the display of colour images + Digital capability of transforming the slider movements into the respective values which are displayed on the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) which is a part of the tool. Online working is an extended and important facility which is built in the tool ‘Indian Abacus – Digital tool'.
The most revolutionary introduction of usage of colour (Red and Green) images display done through the Indian Abacus – Digital is something unparalleled in the history of abacus education which is the first and the strongest feature of the Indian Abacus – Digital and the second feature which now makes it unique is the Digital compatibility factor. The performance results of children using the Indian Abacus – Digital to answer any online test paper can be verified, marked & evaluated for Certification. The test results could also be simultaneously transferred to compatible software used for Competitions for computations of results, positions and awards.
Tutor's Abacus: Indian Abacus and Indian Abacus Digital in a bigger size is also available which is called as “Tutor's Abacus”. Indian Abacus used by tutors is also of the same design, but it is used by the teacher/s for coaching the children in Abacus Mental Arithmetic calculations. The large size – Indian Abacus for teachers is hung on the wall or made to stand on a stand to explain to the students how the Abacus is operated to do the arithmetic calculations. The Teacher Abacus is only to explain to the children getting trained in the subject to gain the skills.
Indian Abacus Digital for Tutor's : Size 748 x 402 x 48 mm., 13 Rows,is designed for use by Tutors of Abacus Mental Arithmetic calculations at the centres. The toolis used to explain to the students how the Abacus is to be operated to gain the Brain skills
Indian Abacus Digital for Tutor – Slots, Sliders / Colour Images : Each slot in the Indian Abacus – Digital for Tutors has 4 lower sliders and 1 upper slider. All the lower sliders could be moved towards and away from the bar individually and together also. Each lower slider, when individually moved towards the bar, unhides a green colour image. Similarly, the upper slider could be moved towards and away the bar. By moving towards the bar, the upper slider unhides a red colour image.
The LCD & LED screen : An integral part of Indian Abacus – Digital for Tutors and when the sliders are moved on the slots towards and away from the bar, values appear and disappear on the digital display screen. When the sliders are moved for a sum while explaining or demonstrating, the movement of the sliders post the values and numbers on the Digital display screen. The Tutor while explaining and the student while working to learn on the Indian Abacus - Digital – for Tutors, could check the values / numbers of the images projected.
Better & effective coaching possible : Using 'Indian Abacus – Digital for tutors' which has two major advantages over the conventional Teacher's abacus with beads. The sliders moved towards and away from the bar would unhide and hide the colour images which are strikingly effective in impression making. Hence the visualization later is faster and stronger, which results in better comprehension.The second advantage is that the LED displays the results of the working on the Indian Abacus – Digital. The facility enables the teacher and the students working on Indian Abacus – Digital to understand the concept and the formulae with much ease.
The design : The Indian Abacus enhances the scope for largely improved quality learning. The skill to visualize post-learning will be better since the images for the value positions in Indian Abacus are highly distinct due to the colour.
Oral Sums Call out & Remote Control : The Indian Abacus-Digital for Tutor's is designed for other training & testing requirements. Calling out of sums (orals) – the system provides calling out (MP3 Inbuilt) of oral sums – the speaker provided on each Tutor's Abacus enables reaching of the output to the entire class room; Deferred Displaying of answers after verifying the children's answers; Conducting the assessments using the countdown timer; Setting time duration for the tests when conducted. Using the Remote control unit, the tutor could control all the activities from one place simultaneously observing the students' individual performances. The tutor can more dynamically work optimizing the time required for different activities.Power Source –The Indian Abacus Digital for Tutor's version 1.0 draws its energy requirements through the cord plugged into any electrical power point.

The brain skills – concentration, visualization and listening which the children acquire would now be available more easily and in a stress free manner. We can now help them perform largely better in their study of all other subjects apart from giving them the great edge in arithmetic calculation. The market – private coaching centres and school based centres are expected to multiply now to reach huge numbers in order to cater to the future demand for abacus education. The Tutor’s version of the tool Indian Abacus is similarly upgraded in design, which along with the Digital version of the Tutor’s abacus would open up new market avenues so far unheard of. The digital version of the tutor’s abacus will have a huge demand from school sector.
