Kids Conquer The Fields Of Mathematics In Mega Abacus Kids Competition
The audience witnessed child prodigies, between the age group of 5 to 15 years, display their exceptional mathematical skills by computing faster than a computer or a calculator.
Universal Concept Mental Arithmetic System (UCMAS) Delhi held its 14th state-level Abacus and Mental Arithmetic Competition in the national capital where 1500+ children took part and solved 200 mathematical questions in 8 minutes.
The audience witnessed child prodigies, between the age group of 5 to 15 years, display their exceptional mathematical skills by computing faster than a computer or a calculator. Abacus has made its way again on the little fingertips of these kids. It was like a thunderbolt for the people to believe what an unimaginable thing these children were doing at such a small age.
Students had to solve 200 mathematics questions in eight minutes depending on the students’ level, using only an abacus or mental arithmetic and the other part was to solve the sums flashing on the screen within seconds.
There was a time when we used to be of the same age and struggled to memorize tables, learning concepts and what not. And here they had solved such complex calculations effortlessly within seconds. Mathematics has been a kind of a nightmare for us as adults, but UCMAS has very smartly turned students into maths magicians these days.
The Directors of UCMAS Delhi, who are also the organizers of the event, Rajiv Garg and Sanjay Verma said, “Every child is born equal, but we as their parents, mentor, adviser or whatsoever are responsible to help them be as capable as they can. Pulling out the child’s caliber at the right age is as important as raising them with good values. UCMAS focuses on exactly the point that no one thinks of to outstand their students. Abacus is the device that helps our students with that”.
The aim of the event was to encourage the students to compete amongst themselves and perform exceptionally well. It also focused on the importance of learning abacus and how it may help fix most of the problems kids face during their learning period.
‘The Gratification Ceremony’ will be held on 5th May 2019 at Shah Auditorium, Civil Lines for the students who excelled the competition along with throwing some light on Dyslexia and enlightening the audience with the ‘Awareness Campaign Against Dyslexia’.
