Abacus activity by grade 2 students

Abacus is one of the world’s oldest and powerful mathematical tools. It is used to calculate arithmetic function with the help of beads and frames. 
Our grade 2 students had an activity based on numbers till 100 where they used Abacus conducted by their teacher – Ms. Richa.  
The students were given the 3 digit numbers using number flash cards and they had to show the digits on Abacus. Each and every child actively participated and it was fun to learn maths through Abacus. 
The students learnt the concept of ones, tens and hundreds. This activity helped in enhancing their thinking and gross motor skills as they had to arrange the beads within limited time. 
We in DWPS, believe in encouraging young minds to learn such concepts that will infinitely ease their relationship with mathematics as a subject, change the way their brains shape a problem, improve their memory and problem-solving speeds.
