UCMAS is a child development program based on Mental Math and the Abacus that boosts brainpower in children aged 4-13.
Along with strengthening math skills,the UCMAS approach promotes whole brain development and establishes foundational building blocks like memory, concentration and creativity and problem solving – core skills that inspire greater confidence and success in all subject areas and in life. The program equips children with the skills they need
to improve overall academic achievement and to confidently meet life’s challenges and achieve greatness.
Pioneered in 1993 in Asia, the program which is based on the ancient abacus tool, combines the integrated thinking
and motoring functions from both the left hemisphere (logical side) of the brain and the right hemisphere (abstract side). In Canada, the program was established in 2004 and is delivered through 55 UCMAS centres, spread across 4
provinces. Over one million children from about 5,500 UCMAS Centres worldwide have benefited from the program to discover the Genius within. Typically parents enrolling their kids in the UCMAS Program are looking to
address one or more of the following:
• Challenge their child
• Develop focus and attention
• Improve math grades
• Stimulate brain development
• Boost academic capabilities
