Benefits that go beyond Math!
Our whole-brain development program builds foundational techniques that make learning math effortless and enjoyable. By mastering these techniques using the Abacus, students develop the ability to think in pictures and quickly learn to perform large calculations mentally.
Over time, our students come to love a subject they may have once struggled with, or even feared. Attaining astonishing calculation speed is actually the end-result of increasing the “brain-fitness”.
Mental math is a building block for future success in all areas of study. Students learn to focus for sustained periods, to manage their time while completing long series of sums, to think in pictures, as well as, logically and to concentrate on more than one task at the same time while
performing at a high standard.
These are crucial life skills that students will use again and again. The program activates key cognitive functions such as memory, attention, perception, symbolic learning and reasoning. UCMAS students become motivated learners – the best route
to success in academics and beyond.
UCMAS demands self-discipline and promotes the joy of lifelong learning and self-discovery. To succeed takes practice and commitment from the student, plus active support from the family. But the payoff is worth it.
At UCMAS, students:
Identify key information
Concentrate on complex instructions
Imagine the Abacus in their visual memory
Perform complex mathematical calculations
Think in pictures to boost memory and recall
