Universal Concept Mental Arithmetic (UCMAS) is an International Concept.

The basic tool for training in this is "the Abacus".

The basic tool for training in this is "the Abacus".

- Using
abacus, children are trained in basic arithmetic functions such as
Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, attaining Speed &
Accuracy.

After a period of training using Abacus, children start doing mental arithmetic without using Abacus itself. This skill is developed by their using imaginary Abacus. The brain skills of children start developing from 4 years onwards in many folds. Proper training will make them develop memory skills and the same is thus manifested.

- The
hidden skills among children such as mathematical and other skills are
brought out with the usage of 2000 years-old tool called Abacus,designed
by the Chinese. This method of skill development program was introduced by
UCMAS-U.A.E (Al Satwa) in the country.

- The
Abacus used in the training program does not need Electricity or any kind
of power. Hence this can be operated anywhere. The Arithmetic solutions
are distinctly visible on the Abacus with the beads in positions.

Based on the Formulae, each bead in each of the rods has a value due to its position. Adopting this method, the beads are moved to change its positions, in the process of arithmetic functions, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division at a high speed.

- Research
studies reveal that Left hemisphere of the brain is responsible for
Analysis, Sound, Language, etc.

- Similarly,
the Right hemisphere of the brain is responsible for Integrated
information, picture, Recollection, Creativity, etc.

- Visualization
Skills (Imaging skills) falling under photographic memory are one of the
important skills for every human being.

- The
fingers and their movement for manipulation make the beads take their due
positions and form a picture with a mathematical value for it. Each child
during their practice daily move 500 or more beads daily. After a few
months training, a few lakh beads are manipulated and bead positions are
visualized. Due to this, Right brain becomes very active and the imagery
skills thus develop very well. The memory skills thus developed only make
the objects and experiences are stored in the brain for recollection,
whenever and wherever required. Thus the Imaging skills enhance the Memory
and bring out the hidden skills in children.

- In
the children of the age group 4 – 12 years, 15 to 85% of the brain
development happens. Training children at this age results in fruitful
development.

- Children
using both their hands using the training method by manipulate the beads
for computation and through prolonged training do arithmetic calculations
with Speed and accuracy.

- Even
the senior students, qualified graduates and other experts use for their
calculations gadgets like calculators, computer based applications, etc
for knowing the answers. Whereas the Abacus trained children do not need
any gadget and they do their calculations using imaginary abacus, visibly
moving the fingers (some even do not do that) calculate and come out with
the answers in seconds which is possible only through this mode of
calculation. Both speed and the accuracy will be maintained at a high
level. Those who witness this are amazed.
