Why does U C MAS admit
children only in the age group of 4 to 12 years?
It is scientifically proven that the growth
of nerves and tissues are rapid only in this specific age group. Further
it is also observed that 80- 85 % of the adult brain is developed in this
period. The U C MAS Mental Arithmetic Program, which is designed for
whole brain development, works extremely well for children in this age
A child less than 4 years cannot be admitted
because the program requires a student to be able to identify 1 to 9 objects.
Similarly a 16-year child may not be able to appreciate the concept of
thinking in pictures because he or she will be so used to looking at
numbers the conventional way.
Does the U C MAS
program affect the school curriculum and schedules?
NO, the U C MAS program, at all times, is
designed to help the students. It, in no way, disturbs the school
curriculum. A U C MAS child would be able to verify the answers using
Mental Arithmetic. The program is conducted during after school hours and
on the weekends and imparts the skill at a consistent and steady speed,
which will ensure that the students can attend to their regular school
schedule without any disturbance.
Is there a crash
course / summer course / correspondence course?
NO, the key to this
program lies in consistent and steady home practice. Though it is only
one class per week, a student is expected to practice this everyday for
about 10 to 15 minutes. This implies that the course can’t be
completed in a shorter span or without the presence of a course
inspector. Only trained and certified personnel can teach it, as the
process of getting to the answers is the most important.
How does the U C
MAS Mental Arithmetic Program ensure the overall academic proficiency?
The result of the U C MAS Mental
Arithmetic Program is not confined to arithmetic only. The concept of
thinking in pictures leads to better understanding and enhanced memory,
which is basic for all academic studies. Thus the result of this program
can be witnessed in all subjects.
How does this
program help children to face competition?
The basis of any competition is on
speed and accuracy. Our program helps the student to achieve consistent
accuracy and once this is achieved through constant practice, the speed
is improved. The accuracy and speed reflects on the memory of a child,
which ensures that the child is accurate and fast in whatever he or she
does with improved confidence.
