Advantages of Abacus Training

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.

3. Bet­ter Under­stand­ing of Math­e­mat­i­cal Prob­lems

Aba­cus class­es train to approach the num­bers in a con­tex­tu­al fash­ion. This ensures bet­ter under­stand­ing of the math­e­mat­i­cal prob­lems.

4. Gives a Boost to Self Esteem

As you know, aba­cus train­ing helps to solve arith­meti­cal prob­lems with ease. On solv­ing the prob­lems eas­i­ly, kids become proud of their capac­i­ty and grow con­fi­dence. More knowl­edge as well as the abil­i­ty to do bet­ter than oth­ers can boost self-esteem.

There are sev­er­al oth­er ben­e­fits attached like

  • Bet­ter com­pre­hen­sion
  • Clear­er rea­son­ing
  • Improved reflex­es
  • Keen­er lis­ten­ing skill

Aba­cus is one of the best ways to help chil­dren learn addi­tion, sub­trac­tion as well as the com­plex pro­ce­dures like mul­ti­pli­ca­tion and divi­sion.
