Why was 9 beads Abacus being innovated
9 Beads Abacus was innovated to resolve the challenge a young learner will face in learning One-Four beads Abacus. It’s simplify the abacus learning in

  • The value of each bead on the abacus represent 1. This make the counting of the beads logical and less abstract for the young
  • Learn the pairs of numbers that make 10 only. Unlike the One-Four Beads Abacus, the learner has to learn number bond of 5 and 10 which sometimes they will be confuse with the pairing
  • The step to carry-over on addition and “borrowing” on subtraction are make easier with lesser set of formulae to remember and apply them appropriately
