Since UCMAS is a brain development program with emphasis on speed, children who undergo this program get trained to concentrate on what Course Instructors rtrain them in the 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 instructors.
UCMAS is a unique program that builds the observation power within a child. The use of flash Cards will ensure the built up of observation. Since the emphasis is on fast image recognition and accuracy.the brain becomes like a scanner, which scans the surroundings and follows the eye movements thus increasing the observation power within a child.
In UCMAS program, children are required to manipulate heads thus creating images, which are retained in the brain. When speedy calculations is required to be done, when either numbers are spoken out or cards are flashd, the child has to quickly identify the image, and recall the corresponding number that has been retained in the brain. This process makes memory sharp and stays with the child throughout his/her life.
For proper imagination, it is required to have well-developed visualization ability and for this it is required to trigger both sides of the brain, specially the right side of the brain which is the visual brain. Abacus is atool that uses both hand operations which in turn helps trigger the right brain cells. Add to this, the quick mental calculation that a child needs to do in the program.
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. Creativity also needs good imagination skills that have already been enhanced by this program.
Judgement requires a balanced brain. To be a good Judge, one requires appreciating both sides of the issue. To understand and appreciateperspectives, context as well as study the logical part of the story . To analyze one’s vision and perspectives you require a strong right brain whereas to understand logic and analyze the situation, one requires a strong left brain. UCMAS helps develops both sides of the brain, thus ensuring a good sense of 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 using abacus, tools like flash cards and techniques like jumbled writing, speed writing, etc.
A child’s 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 and concentration power and with enhanced arithmetical skills with high accuracy and speed, a child’s confidence is sure to get a real boost.
