What is an Abacus?

An abacus, also known as a counting frame, is a calculating tool with beads that slide across on wires or rods. The most common abacus is split into two rows: The top row (upper beads) is for the “fives” The bottom row (lower beads) is for the “ones” The upper beads are located in the upper deck and the lower beads are located in the lower deck. Besides the rows, the abacus has different columns. Each column represents a place value such as tens, hundreds, and so on. The amount of place values varies depending on the size and design of the abacus.
