Calculating tools such as bead strings, counting frames and abacus are tactile mathematical learning tools that have been with us for centuries. The combination of seeing and doing is a powerful one that not only improves concentration but enhances visualisation skills. Using beads in one of these formats allows students to explore numeracy, develop number sense and become fluent with number concepts. In addition concentration levels are boosted, calculation speed increased and stress levels are said to decrease.
