UCMAS is a unique and scientifically proven brain development program designed for children at the age of 5 years to 13 years to develop their dormant mental power when brain development is at its pinnacle. This program offers the children an opportunity to accelerate their progress in mental ability, development and academic excellence.
In short UCMAS is an abacus based programme “Education with a difference concept”. Seeded and guided by UCMAS Global, Malaysia, UCMAS represents a proven educational revolution bringing in the much sought after preferred enrichment in their children.
Along with innovative syllabus and modern education techniques, junior learners’ practice with an age-old tool (Abacus). The learning process not only stimulates the brain but also trains their ability to independently perform mental calculation faster than calculator.
With Globally accepted presence in Mental Arithmetic UCMAS has a huge presence globally in 80 plus countries in every State of India and in all major cities and villages.
Yug Abacus Education LLP is proud to UCMAS Uttarakhand and has been honored at State as well as National and International level Competitions with best performers to solve 200 sums in 8 minutes or less.
Vision With our core values as a guiding light, UCMAS, in active partnership with parents and community members, will enrich the lives of children by fostering their intellect, instilling belief & paving their way to become responsible citizens of the 21st century.
Become the World’s Most Respected, Trusted & Valuable Brain Development Program based on profound and persistent research
UCMAS program is successful for children in the age group 5 to 13 Years.
What is Abacus?
Abacus is an ancient calculating device, also known to be the first computer. In terms of structure, it has a frame with beads which are used in counting. There are hundreds of styles of Abacus available across the globe. Infact there are museums which showcases the huge variety of Abacus developed over a period of time.
The particular type of Abacus that we use in UCMAS is called Sorobon. The reason why we use this is it works on Base – 10 System, which is similar to the concept we use in our day to day conventional Mathematics Education.
How Does UCMAS Abacus Program Works?
Human brain in its early stages has the maximum learning ability. The greatest growth of human brain is during 0 to 14 years. During this period, the child progress from “Relaxed” to “Relaxed but Conscious” stage and post the age of 14, to a fully conscious stage. The human ability has to be tapped in these initial years.
A lot of organs of the human body are divided into right and left parts. Some of them appear symmetric on the surface, but their functions are not symmetric at all. For instance, the right and left hands are different in strength and skills, so is the visual sensitiveness of the right and left eyes. For the same reason, the function of the right and left hemispheres of the brain is not symmetric either. The theme to emerge from this is that there are two modes of thinking, verbal and nonverbal represented rather separately in left and right hemispheres respectively.
The nerve tissues of human fingers are directly connected to various lobes of brain.
Driving beads mutually on Abacus by right and left hand enables man’s vision, sense of hearing, sense of touch and all muscles to act in concert and harmony. Thus the right and left hemispheres of the brain are simultaneously used and control the action of the hands together. The action of the right hand has developed the calculating and logical thinking function of the left brain, and the action of the left hand has developed the imaginary and creative function of the right brain.
Child is made to solve arithmetic questions on Abacus. When a child moves his or her fingers on abacus, in a designation finger movement, he or she directly stimulates the brain which leads to overall cognitive or brain skill development.
Over a period of time, the child perceives the image of abacus in his or her mind and can start solving complex arithmetic questions without Abacus.
