UCMAS is a child development program based on Mental Math and the Abacus that boosts brainpower in children aged 4-13. Along with strengthening math skills, the UCMAS approach promotes whole brain development and establishes foundational building blocks like memory, concentration, creativity and problem solving – core skills that inspire greater confidence and success in all subject areas and in life. The program equips them with the skills they need to improve overall academic achievement and to confidently meet life’s challenges and achieve greatness.
Plus, our exciting classes and energetic instructors ensure that our students have fun as they learn! Since 1993, UCMAS has helped over one million children around the world Discover the Genius Within.
Benefits of UCMAS
UCMAS develops a special set of skills in the student. We call them COMIC JARS.
Since UCMAS is a brain development program with emphasis on speed and accuracy, children get trained for immense concentration in the classroom sessions. One second of lost concentration will get them a wrong answer and hence they form the constant habit focusing on verbal number instructions, flashing of cards and visual reading of numbers done by their instructors.
UCMAS is a unique program that builds the observation power within a child. Quizzing children on flash cards, trains them to build on observation skills. With the emphasis on rapid image recognition and calculation with the abacus the brain behaves like a scanner, which scans the surroundings and follows the hand-eye coordination thus makes a child more observant.
Memory is the capacity of the brain to Receive, Retain, and Recall (3Rs). In this program, students are trained on the physical and the visual abacus to recognize the beads and calculate using mathematical formulae. When high-speed calculations are embodied using the 3 learning styles: auditory skills with verbal instructions, visual skills with recognition of images and tactile and kinesthetic skills with hands on use of abacus; children quickly identify the image, recall the corresponding number and the formula that has been retained in memory and with consistent practice enhances long-term memory power in a child.
Imagination leads to invention. UCMAS uses the concept of semi-image on the abacus. This helps students to unleash the capacity of the brain, which makes them visualize and convert the digits into images using the tangible beads of the abacus. Later, calculate visually and again process them back into written form of numbers.
Creativity stems from a highly imaginative well-developed brain. In the UCMAS program, most of the calculation and finger movements are done by the left hand, which is controlled by the right side of the brain. More left hand movement will develop right side of the brain. This enables students to develop their creative skills.
Judgment requires a balanced understanding, of perspectives and context of a particular subject. UCMAS enhances creativity and imagination, which helps analyze the vision and perspective engaging right side of the brain. The program also enhances observation and memory to understand logically and analyze the situation, strongly engaging left side of brain. This balanced approach ensures a good sense of judgment within a child.
Application is the art of understanding a situation or a context and then applying your wisdom and knowledge to give a better meaning to the situation. Comprehending and analyzing with a good judgment and a well-balanced brain will help a child enhance his/ her application skills. UCMAS program enhances all these required skills through very systematic and scientific approach.
To reason about anything or with anyone, you require a well-balanced, logical and analytical brain. The UCMAS program constantly triggers both sides of the brain by training children on the abacus and mental math. With tools like flash cards and techniques like jumbled dictation, speedwriting, and more, children apply sequencing and formula recalling in their calculations, which enables them to analyze and strengthen their reasoning ability.
Success and self-confidence have an absolute interconnection. With UCMAS children become motivated learners as they acquire a unique life long skill, which gives them a superior standing over others, in their grade and age. Their enhanced cognitive skills and strongly developed mental math ability gives them a great sense of accomplishment and boosts their self-esteem and confidence levels.
Why should we encourage Child towards UCMAS
UCMAS program is designed in such kids will have the lot of fun while learning due to the highly interactive teaching methodology and learning aid, with some practice, your child can impress friends with amazing computation skills by calculating sums mentally.
UCMAS students are found to be superior in the accuracy of their memory and the number of digits they are able to memorize when compared with non-UCMAS learners of the same age. UCMAS boost your child’s confidence, provide a sense of achievement, promote intuitive thinking, enhance problem-solving capability, enhance creativity, and improve concentration and mental endurance.
