By Dr. Muzaffar Naznin /Kolkata

An abacus is also called a counting frame. It is a calculating tool that has been used since ancient times.

Around the world, the abacus has been used in pre-schools and elementary schools as an aid in teaching the numeral system and arithmetic.

Maths is an important subject. No one can deny it. It has been observed extensively that 70 percent of students drop Maths as a subject after the 10th grade.

The remaining 30 percent that opts for Maths successively are already proficient in it.

Abacus courses have been running in India and globally for the past 12 years. The best time to learn Abacus is from 5 years to 11 years.

There is a common notion among people that Abacus deals with attaining proficiency in calculation. It’s right but the actual benefit is the improvement of concentration and brain enhancement through the concept of visualization.

It has been proven one of the most effective methods for young learners to do mental maths.

It is a well-known quote that “Learning has no age bar”, but it comes to Abacus, it is not that accurate.

One can learn Abacus at any age, but in order to master the speed and mental calculation skills, it has to be started at a very young age(from 5 years to 11 years).

Though Abacus can be learned at any age, the obvious benefit is seen when a kid starts.
