How UCMAS benefits children?
When a child takes on the UCMAS program he or she takes on the role as a learner, observer and thinker. UCMAS training methodology guides the learner to analyze and solve given objects or numbers. As result, the training helps the learner’s alertness and swiftness of mind and senses.
In our training, learners will constantly repeat these Three processes in high speed.
- Here they will start with identifying the sum and effortlessly interpret the same onto imaginary Abacus beads.
- Followed by retaining the imagined abacus beads and performing the calculation.
- Recalling the beads and writing the answer for the sum accurately.
The memory revolves around Three processes:
The “identify, Retain and Recall” process is carried out throughout the UCMAS program where learners are trained continuously to repeat the process as fast as they possibly could. They reason out the answer of the sum by judging their visual, auditory and kinesthetic senses. They intercept what they see, hear or feel through applications of the mental arithmetic techniques. Speedy calculation aside, learners will be able to sharpen their photographic memory and imagination while expanding their creativity at the end of the day.
The UCMAS Mental Arithmetic Program trains the brain and the child well with a noble diet for brain development. UCMAS techniques are scientifically proven to allow full development of the human brain and maximize the potential of its left (logic) and right (creativity) hemispheres.
When learners are used to reach with accuracy in challenging times, it gives them an opportunity to reach creatively by thinking out of the box faster than anybody else. This becomes an acquired talent and enhances self confidence of the learner.
Since UCMAS is a brain development program with emphasis on speed, the children who undergo this program get trained to concentrate on what their course instructor trains them in a class. A second of lost concentration will get them a wrong answer and hence they form the habit of concentrating on either numbers spoken out to them or the flashing of cards done by their instructor.
UCMAS is a unique program that builds the observation power within a child. The use of flash card will ensure the built up of Observation. Since the emphasis is on fast image recognition and accuracy, the brain become like a scanner, which scans the surrounding and follows the eye movement increasing the observation power of a child.
In UCMAS program, children are required to manipulate beads and thereby creating images which are retained in the brain. When speedy calculation is required to be done or when either numbers are spoken out or cards are flashed the child has to quickly identify the image and recall the corresponding number that has been retained in the brain.
For proper imagination well developed visualization ability is required. For this we need to trigger both sides of the brain especially the right side which is the visual brain. Abacus is a tool that uses both hand operations which in turn help trigger the right brain cells.
Creativity stems from a well developed right brain. In the UCMAS program most of the calculations and finger movements are done by the left hand which is controlled by the right side of the brain. So more the left hand movements, more will be the development of the right side of the brain. Creativity also needs good imagination skills that have already been enhanced by this program.
Judgment requires a balanced brain. To be a good judge, one requires appreciating both sides of the issue. To understand and appreciate perspectives, context as well as study the logical part of the story is needed. To analyze one’s vision and perspective you require a strong right brain whereas to understand logic and analyze the situation, one requires a strong left brain. UCMAS helps develop both sides of the brain, thus ensuring a good judgment within a child.
Application is the art of understanding a situation or a context and then applying all your wisdom and knowledge to give a better meaning to the situation. A good memory, good judgment and a well-balanced brain will help a child enhance his/her application skills. UCMAS program enhances all these required skills.
To reason about anything or with anyone, you require a well-balanced, logical and analytical brain. UCMAS creates a well developed brain by training both sides of the brain used Abacus, tools like flash cards and techniques like jumbled writing, speed, writing etc.
A child’s self-confidence becomes very high when he stands out in the class or when people recognize his or her unique capabilities. With exceptionally strong memory, powerful focus, concentration power, enhanced arithmetical skills combined with high accuracy and speed a child’s confidence is sure to get a real boost.
