Performing calculations at exceptional speeds is only the end result of UCMAS . During the process, children develop gross motor skills, concentration, observation, visualization and show tremendous increase in memory power. By learning how to move the beads of the abacus, hand – eye co-ordination is developed which in turn makes children conentrate on the beads. Holding the abacus tool by itself creates an interest in children and makes them focus on moving the beads.
With continued practice, the children register the abacus as an image in their minds and move the beads mentally in their heads to perform calculations. Thus visualization and imagination is increased leading to right brain development.The process of recollecting the image of the abacus increases memmory power. Thus UCMAS is a program that benefits your child by achieving holistic brain power development.
