# Vedic mathematics vs. Abacus - What will suit for kid? - PowerPoint PPT Presentation

Abacus is a calculating tool which first originated in the European countries. However, it was in China where Abacus became popular and was used for day to day calculations. Predominantly, used as a calculating tool, it has a frame consisting of wires which are attached to frame and beads which slide along these wires. Each bead represents one unit.

### Vedic mathematics vs Abacus - What will suit for kid?

One important lesson Math that we can all apply in our lives is ”Always Be Careful With The Signs!”

• Abacus is a calculating tool which first originated in the European countries

• In China, Abacus became popular and was used for day to day calculations

• It has a frame consisting of wires which are attached to frame and beads which slide along these wires

• Each bead represents one unit.

• Used to perform addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication

• Abacus learning at a very young age is useful in actuating the brains of the kids.

• The right hand actuates the left hemisphere and the left hand actuates the right hemisphere, thereby helping in developing both sides of the brain in a balanced way

• It is suggested age that Abacus math should be started at very early childhood, as young as 4.

Demerits of Abacus

• Although exceptionally helpful, abacus has plenty of drawbacks as the child might get overconfident in mathematics and the child might bypass the regular functions like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division methods.

• Abacus is primarily about cramming. It in a way creates monotony and takes well over two years to master it which might lead the child to get bored.

• Advanced mathematical concepts like calculus, algebra and geometry cannot be solved using abacus, an abacus in contrast to Vedic Mathematics is just basic and elementary.

• Vedic Mathematics system is based on the 16 Vedic Sutras

• Originally written in Sanskrit language and can be easily memorized and using these all kinds of calculations can be made.

• It was founded in 1911 and has its roots in AtharvaVeda.

• Vedic math can be entirely done in mind and paperwork is not required.

• Vedic math starts at a basic level of numbers and gradually progressing to simple additions, subtractions, multiplications and division.

• Vedic math is not just about solving the basic calculations as with Vedic math one can also be able to solve complex geometrical theorems, calculus sums and algebraic problems.

• Vedic math can be started at later ages as well without any difficulty.

• It is also very useful for competitive exams specifically while solving multiple choice questions where timing is an issue!

• The rules of calculation are very simple

• Focuses more on learning through logic and understanding of the fundamental concepts of mathematics

• Help the child in understanding mathematics better

• It does not become an additional burden for students, teachers & parents

• The only drawback of Vedic mathematics is that it is not advisable for kindergarten and primary school children and a child can understand its concepts only after a certain age.

• The advantages and applications of Vedic mathematics are so wide that it minor drawbacks can be overlooked and should is preferred over abacus.

• Online marketplaces like Braingroom have been booming with the scope to target the right kids to the right fields. In fact, their arena is so simple that all parents have to do is understand what field can help their child in the longer run and boom. You are connected to the right person!
