How to play

Two types of sheets are proposed. From the first two, we choose as many pieces as shown on the sheet, paying attention on colour and shape. We reproduce the sheet on the Abacolor. We ask the children to count the pieces introduced on each rod. With the other two sheets, we search as many pieces as the number and colour indicates, and we place them on the abacus. We may introduce the positional numbering system on the abacus.
