The abacus, that ancient, no-batteries-required, bead-based calculator, is making a comeback in after-school programs.
The course is about Abacus education. We use numbers 0-9 and the abacus as the prime tool to develop the mental abilities of the child. This is not a mathematics course! We are simply using the child’s ability to do mental arithmetic to increase the productivity of the brain and to enhance mind power.
Scientific analyses indicate abacus training can improve a child’s ability to:
and process information.
But how can it accomplish all that, and so much more?
Our brain has two hemispheres, the left brain and the right brain. About 95% of our children use only the left brain, which provides the ability to analyze information concerning languages and sound. But the right side of the brain, which is focused on thinking, creativity and integration of information, needs to be used and stimulated as well.
Learning to use the abacus can help develop this right brain/left brain integration.
