UCMAS - Abacus And Mental Math After School Program

UCMAS Mental Math  (math program for kids) is a child development after school program based on Mental Math and the Abacus that boosts brainpower in children aged 4-13. Along with strengthening math skills, the UCMAS Mississauga and UCMAS Oakville approach promotes whole brain development and establishes foundation building blocks like

  • Memory (visual and auditory)               

  • Focus and concentration            

  • Discipline and multi-tasking          

  • Problem solving  

Whole Brain Development through Abacus:


Using UCMAS abacus requires co-ordination of the main nerves of the human body such as sight, sound and finger movement which will induce growth of brain cells. The mind undergoes three main stages of development namely physical contact, logical explanation and visualization throughout the process and the abacus acts as a bridge that connects the three stages. More than 80% of the world population are right-handed and right-handed people normally have more developed left brain with less developed right brain. While the creativity side of the right brain is more than a thousand times than that of the left brain. Learning UCMAS abacus will stimulate the development of the right brain at an early age.

Whether you’re looking to further challenge your child, prepare your youngster for school or simply improve your child’s math grades, the UCMAS Mental Math (Mississauga & Oakville)  program is designed to meet your needs.


A child’s brain is primed for learning. And its development holds the key to the child's future. At UCMAS, we know that healthy brain-development in childhood provides the foundation for educational achievement, confidence and future success in life. 


Our UCMAS program is designed to stimulate brain-development in children aged 4-13 by training them to perform Mental Math using the Abacus in a fun and engaging way. Described as “Mental Aerobics”, the UCMAS Mental Math is a whole-brain development program that builds the framework for key cognitive and learning skills – the best route to success in academics and beyond!
