1. Facilitates Brain Development
Beginning abacus learning at a tender age facilitates brain development. When a child works on abacus, both the hands are made use of to move the beads. Finger movement of hands activates the brain sensors. Right hand coordinates with the left hemisphere of the brain and the left hand coordinates with the right hemisphere of the brain. This facilitates brain functioning.
2. Interests Children
The colorful beads and the very process of solving mathematical problems with abacus interest the child. Abacus training helps to improve concentration and makes problem solving as easy as breeze.
