Nur­tur­ing math prodi­gies

UCMAS of­fers a sci­en­tif­i­cally proven men­tal de­vel­op­ment pro­gramme de­signed for chil­dren to de­velop their la­tent men­tal power at an early age, when brain de­vel­op­ment is at its peak.

Es­tab­lished in 1993, UCMAS has ex­panded to more than 57 coun­tries in five con­ti­nents, ben­e­fit­ing chil­dren world­wide.

The in­sti­tu­tion’s con­cept be­gan when UCMAS founder and pres­i­dent Dr Dino Wong had the idea of bring­ing back the tra­di­tional aba­cus and adapt­ing it to chil­dren in mod­ern so­ci­ety.

With the pair­ing of an in­no­va­tive syl­labus and mod­ern ed­u­ca­tional tech­niques, the three- mil­len­nia- year- old aba­cus stim­u­lates the brain and sharp­ens chil­dren’s abil­ity to in­de­pen­dently per­form men­tal cal­cu­la­tion in their heads.

Over the years, UCMAS has been recog­nised world­wide for its proven re­sults. Ev­i­dence is seen through learn­ers’ out­stand­ing men­tal arith­metic abil­ity and speedy cal­cu­la­tion af­ter un­der­go­ing the pro­gramme.

Re­sults go be­yond men­tal arith­metic as it helps nur­ture other men­tal abil­i­ties such as con­cen­tra­tion, lis­ten­ing, ob­ser­va­tion, imag­i­na­tion, vi­su­al­i­sa­tion and mem­ory.

These are achiev­able as men­tal arith­metic learn­ers are equipped with en­hanc­ing skills that help de­velop other parts of the brain too.

Liv­ing up to its motto To Learn, To Serve, To Ex­cel, UCMAS has more than two decades of ex­pe­ri­ence with ever- im­prov­ing knowl­edge and in­no­va­tions.

As of date, UCMAS has about 5,000 learn­ing cen­tres world­wide, reach­ing more than a mil­lion chil­dren.

In 2003, UCMAS gar­nered three spots in The Malaysia Book of Records as the largest men­tal arith­metic in­sti­tu­tion, the first men­tal arith­metic in­sti­tu­tion to achieve the ISO 9001 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, and the or­gan­iser for the largest men­tal arith­metic com­pe­ti­tion.

UCMAS also re­ceived a world record in 2004 un­der the Limca Book of Records for hold­ing the largest aba­cus men­tal arith­metic com­pe­ti­tion in the world.

In 2013, a UCMAS stu­dent achieved an­other world record for solv­ing 10 tasks of men­tally adding “10 dig­its and 10 rows” of num­bers in two min­utes and five sec­onds.
