benefits of abacus
Helps in the Intellectual Development of Children There are two hemispheres of the brain; the left and right, governing different functions. In Abacus training, the left brain perceives the numbers and the right brain performs the Abacus calculation and sends the results out from the left brain. Hence, Abacus training engages and activates the right brain which is rarely used, resulting in a more balanced development of both hemispheres of the brain. People with a more developed right brain are more creative.
