UCMAS for Mental Arithmetic Development Programme
Are you concerned about your children’s mental development? UCMAS is a leading worldwide Abacus education provider, which would help your children develop their mental arithmetic abilities, concentration, observation, visualization & imagination, and memory. UCMAS trains children through a series of 10 structured levels, where the lessons are taught in a Play-Way method, easy to understand and work independently even by a 4 year old child. Within few months of training students can solve arithmetic calculations mentally in few seconds with accuracy, which cannot be acquired even-after 10 years of schooling. At a Fixed Duration (approximately 3-months / 12-weeks per Level) with Simple Assessments any normal child can move on to next Levels, which enable them to complete the entire course (10 Levels) successfully with No Repetition. The video below would give you a brief introduction to the programme.
Mental Development Benefits of UCMAS
More than arithmetic
Many people often assume that learning mental arithmetic is merely a method to improve the speed and accuracy of calculations, for example, adding 10-digit numbers withln a few seconds. By itself,it is already an amazing accomplishment for most young children. However, there is more to thls because when the children are learning U C MAS Mental Arithmetic, they are actually also undergolng the process developing other aspects of the mind. When the children have acquired an astonishing calculation speed, it is actually only the end result of having developed the following mental abilities : concentration, observation, vlsualization & imagination, and memory.
Concentration is the concentrated and directed attention towards a particular matter with clear reflection that creates a deep image and mental impression. An enhanced concentration leads to better absorption power. Studying will then be a joyfuI thlng for these children. In the abacus and mental arithmetic education children will be tralned to concentrate when Iistening to the teachers questions (that ranges from easy to difficult) and then focus on calculating the answers as accurately as possible.
Observtion is the ability to compare and analyse and differentiate objects, motives and steps. It is also a state of alertness and swiftness of the mind and senses. This comes from the need to understand the theoretical requirements of each calculation and at the same time be aware of the time, and promptings from the teachers.
Visualization and Imagination
By using the imagination of the right braln to visualize the abacus in mind, inevitably the powers of visualization would become sharp and clear. Albert Einstein believes that the imagination is important than knowledge, because imagination is the main source of yet-to-be-discovered knowledge.
Memory is the ability to store and retrieve information and experiences. It has been found that memory in the left brain would not stay long, but an image that is recorded in the right brain would stay on in the mind forever. By stimulating the right brain with mental arithmetic, and in combination with the alertness of the eyes, ears and hands, the ability to store and recall is developed together. Therefore, the ability to solve 10-digits arithmetic problems in only a few seconds is only a small success in comparison to the actual mental training that has been done in order to achieve the skill to perform rapid calculations.
The following Demo will astonish you as it shows how children at a very young age can make all sorts of complex calculations mentally and faster than the calculator!
The course runs only for ten months in a year and lasts for 3 years. The students will have two hour face-to-face class session every week; 8-10 hours of class sessions every month. In addition, they will be given homework to carry out every day. For more details, please review the Q & A page.
The fees are £80 a month plus a non-refundable registration fee paid once of £80, which will cover the costs of providing a personal abacus, bag and exercise note books for the whole 10 levels. We offer discounts for siblings and groups who register in level one.
