    Default Name of a teaching tool

    Could anyone tell me what the term is for the following description:

    A few pillars in a frame of colour beads for teaching small children of mathematical calculation?

    No, it isn't. I have searched it by Google image and found that it is "counting beads" However, I would like to know if this is a proper term for it.
    Thanks, LwyrFirat.

    Thanks, LwyrFirat.
    Oh, I have made a terrible mistake.
    LwyrFirat, you're right. That's it what I want.
    Thanks a million.
