Abacus

Tease your Brain with Abacus

abaucsAbacus is the oldest method that is been used for calculations. The primordial people used pebbles, rocks, shells, wooden sticks, fingers, toes and similar countable nouns for counting. Those days, people were unaware that devices such as calculators, computers or mobile phones could be invented. Their strongest possession was their brain and hence, they developed it to invent tools like abacus through rocks and pebbles. People, in those ancient times, invented many counting boards which got reinvigorating.

Though the latest digital instruments that we use now serve the best purpose of counting and saving time, we have somehow stopped discovering the capacity of our brain. For the simplest calculation, we use calculators and do not trust our brain.

However, after a number of studies and researches, the scholars realized that instrument like Abacus can be one of the best tools to sharpen our brain as it helps to strengthen memory, confidence, sense of achievement, intuitive thinking, problem-solving capability, creativity, concentration and mental endurance.

Four Elements is an organization that trains Abacus to kids for over 6 years. We conduct multiple state and national level competitions where our expert trainers help children to solve 150 sums in just 10 minutes. Each sum is made to be calculated in approx. 4 seconds; no matter how long is the sum. The students are not only taught to use Abacus but are even trained to boost their concentration and imagination by solving these sums mentally, with Abacus tricks yet without using the Abacus instrument.
