  1. Why use an Abacus?
    • An Abacus with 9 or 10 Beads per Row physically models the actual process (carry, borrow and Place Value) that we use to manipulate numbers.
    • When keeping track of a count of objects, Abacus Beads serve as the running total (especially when the Beads hold their position).
