The MAA Abacus programme is a brain developing programme that has benefited a lot of children. In India, this program was initiated in May 2014.Our programme helps children to develop their listening skills, concentration, visual memory, and builds their self- confidence.
Abacus is a Latin word that has its origins in the Greek words abax or abakon (meaning "table" or "tablet") which in turn, possibly originated from the Semitic word abq, meaning "sand". The abacus is one of many types of counting devices which are used to count large numbers.
The Abacus tool is used to teach the children, where they use both the hands to manipulate the beads. In initial stages, they take the help of the Abacus to work out the problems. Gradually, the Abacus is taken away and the child performs the manipulation of beads mentally. This enables them to achieve a high level of speed, accuracy and concentration.
Any Arithmetic calculation can be arrived within a few seconds/minutes over a period of regular education & training. The system is very simple which needs only 10-20 minutes of practice daily and does not affect other Academic education. On the contrary, it supplements the improvement of career education.
