What Is UCMAS?
UCMAS is a child development program based on mental math and the abacus. The system is designed to boost the brainpower of children ages 4 to 13 years old.
UCMAS program is based on the ancient, simple but powerful Abacus tool that provides countable beads for children to visualize numbers. Children learn to manipulate those beads to perform arrhythmic calculations, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Students begin the program using the abacus to help visualize these calculations. Later, the students move on to mental math, where they are able to visualize the abacus in their minds and calculate quickly. This crucial concept of visualization or thinking in pictures leverages the right side of the brain and leads to dramatically higher levels of speed, efficiency, and accuracy.
