The usage of abacus has a positive effect on the cognitive development of children. This knowledge provide a persistent basis for learning and understanding mathematics. Other skills such as concentration, logical thinking, and special vision develop this way.
Research prove that the usage of abacus activates both brain hemispheres and contributes to the development of hidden brain capacity. Children learning with the help of abacus can solve mathematical problems successfully from a very early age.
The usage of abacus ensures that the numbers are not only visual signs of quantity anymore, but they become objects which are marked in space with the placement of balls. Numbers can be seen, touched and controlled. Each number is available and becomes ‘real’ as it acquires a physical form by the balls on the abacus.
Children can develop their ability which makes mathematical calculations automatic and instinctive for them. In their heads, pictures change very quickly. The correct results are instantly ready.
