Mental Arithmetic & Abacus

The abacus system of mental calculation is a system

The abacus system of mental calculation is a system where users mentally visualize an abacus to do calculations. No physical abacus is used; only the answers are written down.

The abacus in various forms was used by different ancient civilizations. The Chinese abacus is one of the great inventions of China. During the 17th century, Chinese abacus was introduced to Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Korea, Vietnam and other countries, and is being propagated even today. After nearly 2000 years of improvement, this calculation method has become the most popular, simplest and most accurate calculation method. Even as we advance into the technological age, the abacus still has an important role to play. Mental calculation is said to improve mental capability, increase speed of response, memory power and concentration power.

Many veteran and prolific abacus users in China, Japan, South Korea and others who use the abacus daily, naturally tend to not use the abacus anymore but perform calculations by visualizing the abacus. This was verified when the right brain measured heightened EEG activity when calculating and compared with non-veterans who were using the abacus to perform calculations.

The standard abacus can be used to perform addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.
