UCMAS – Universal Concept of Mental Arithmetic System is the largest worldwide skill development program for children between the ages of 6 and 13.
What is UCMAS ?
The word UCMAS leaves a sense of curiosity in everybody’s mind all the time. People always want to know what UCMAS is and why the world is talking about UCMAS.
UCMAS is a unique and scientifically-proven mental development programme designed for children to develop their latent mental power at a very early age when brain development is reaching its peak.
UCMAS has been recognised worldwide for its proven results – with the most obvious being the learners’ fantastic mental arithmetic ability and speedy calculation after undergoing the mental arithmetic programme. Mental arithmetic compromises arithmetic calculation regardless of the complexity, using only the brain. What initially seems impossible becomes a reality with UCMAS!
It is more than Maths!
On the surface, it can be assumed that arithmetic is the primary focus of this program, and the end goal is to be able to perform outstanding feats of calculation using solely the mind. However, this program strives to develop other mental abilities as well like concentration, observation, listening, imagination & visualization, as well as memory.
The incredible calculation speed and accuracy you can achieve is only because all these other areas of the brain have been developed as well! Learners equipped with our brain-enhancing skills will also with no doubt find that they have increased self confidence and independence in their academics.
“We want what is the BEST for our children!” – Many parents agreed.
The Science of Brain
Our brain is divided into two hemispheres, the left hemisphere and the right hemisphere. In general, the left and right hemispheres of our brain process information in different ways, while we have a natural tendency towards one way of thinking, the two sides of our brain work together in our everyday lives. However about 90% of the children primarily the left brain! The focus of the left brain is verbal, processing information in an analytical and sequential way, looking first at the pieces than putting them together to get the whole.
“When both right and left hemispheres of our brain are combined and used effectively together, the results could be astonishing” – Albert Einstein, the world famous scientist
