Abacus , also called a counting frame or suanpan , is known to be the most ancient calculating device. It has been endured over the times but still used in some of the countries of the world. The entire abacus consists of the wooden frame, rod and the beads. The device was also used for the small children to teach them the basic rule of addition and subtraction.
The abacus essentially consists of a number of rows of movable beads or other objects, which represent digits. One of two numbers is set up, and the beads are manipulated to implement an operation involving a second number , or rarely a square or cubic root.
This is a great gift for children to understand another way of math than a calculator.
