Harness the power of the abacus
U C MAS (Universal Concept Mental Arithmetic System) for children aged four to 12 years, is a leading worldwide abacus mental arithmetic education provider founded by Dr Dino Wong in October 1993.
The success of this unique instructional method in learning mental arithmetic spread rapidly in 40 countries across the world and millions of children study with U C MAS every day.
In U C MAS students initially use the abacus as a tool for performing arithmetic calculation, by the manipulation of beads. The practice of using the abacus successfully removes the fear of numbers and gradually makes arithmetic fun to learn.
This enables them to achieve a high level of speed, accuracy and concentration. The system is very simple, needs only ten to 20 minutes of practice daily and does not affect other academic education. On the contrary, it supplements the improvement of career education.
Initially the child uses the abacus to help with calculation, and over a period of regular training and practice they would are able to visualise the image of the abacus in their mind and master any arithmetic calculation within a few seconds without relying on any gadgets or even the abacus.
This whole-brain development programme not only helps children master arithmetic skills but the training helps in nurturing and balancing the multiple intelligence of the human brain.
It also enhances life skills such as concentration, creativity, visualisaton, listening and photographic memory. It enables children to discover and bring out their hidden potential.
U C MAS enables children to develop independent learning skills, progressing through their own efforts, and reaping their own rewards, all within a stipulated period.
U C MAS works with your child to give them the best chance of succeeding in school and adult life.
There are ten levels, each completed in 12 weeks with a weekly two-hour class and ten to 20 minutes’ daily practice, level assessments and certificates upon completion. The syllabus for every level is unique – there is no repetition.
