Using the abacus

Using the abacus

The benefit of learning something like the abacus is in teaching your mind to more efficiently structure numbers for calculation... see the other youtube videos for speed-math abacus competitors in Japan... they don't even use the physical abacus, it's all imaginary and mental. If I practiced using a calculator hours on end, I'd get pretty damned fast at it, myself!
