Abacus is an ancient computing methodology developed in China, Japan, Babilonia etc. Wherein students learn to solve mathematical problems using a very simple instrument called ‘abacus’. Abacus is an apparatus used for counting and calculation.

Basic mathematical operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are solved by simple movement of beads in this instrument. This helps the student to develop a pictorial representation of the problem in the brain and by regular practice; the brain learns to solve the problem without actual use of any aid including the abacus. The students thereby develop an exciting photographic memory. The user of an abacus is called an abacist.

**Visualiztion -a key factor of Abacus Calculations**

Visualization not only enables winning ability through speed, i.e. less time taken for a calculation but also takes the Abacus user into a mental plane which is a unique move from physical to mental plane.Better visualization process through Indian Abacus – Digital makes photographic memory much stronger. In the mental plane again, when the object is clear, the distraction becomes nil.The abacus calculation through visualization therefore takes the child during the process to a state of total concentration. IndianAbacus – Digital enables stronger focus through better scope to concentrate.
