Why learn Abacus?
An abacus is a calculating tool that has been used since ancient times. It was used in the ancient Near East, Europe, China, and Russia, centuries before the adoption of the Hindu-Arabic numeral system. As an approach to learning maths, the abacus reduces demands on short-term memory. The abacus makes the best use of what we’ve got in terms of cognitive capacity. It fits the limits of human cognition and short-term memory.
Abacus makes learning a matter of doing. It’s an active, engaging process.
