The Child works on Physical Abacus for a period of 6 months, then the abacus is internalized (image of ABACUS) and computation is done by Visualization thereafter.
What is Abacus Mental Arithmetic?
The child moves the Sliders in the Physical Abacus to do arithmetic sums.
After 3 levels, the Child imagines the Abacus in its mind and can do sums without using physical Abacus.
The child, while doing arithmetic calculations, moves the sliders in the imaginary Abacus and the resultant bright colour image / value is converted as number and the quick answer comes within few seconds
What is the benefit of Mental Calculation?
Studying the mental arithmetic by image of abacus is more advantageous than other skills in the light of the result of academics. Mental Arithmetic by image of Abacus enables to compute at a speed which can be compared to that of Maths geniuses and child prodigies. Abacus students are found to be superior in the accuracy of their memory and the number of digits they are able to memorize when compared with non-abacus learners of the same age. They are 6 times more faster than NON ABACUS learners. A child who received good mental formation by this age will continue to remain brilliant even at the age of 70.
