GMAS-A Global Organization

GMAS,
a pioneer organization in ABACUS Education worldwide, is an internationally well-known powerful Brain Development Program, which will effectively activate children's latent mental power and develop Mental & Creative Skills and Photographic Memory resulting in Self-reliance and Self-confidence. 

GMAS is a lifetime skill, which will remain with the child forever.  The program develops the child’s mathematical and logical powers to such an extent that the child after completion of this course will be able to do any Arithmetic calculations mentally without the help of a calculator.

GMAS uses Chinese ancient tool - ABACUS for the Right Brain Development, (the seat of intelligence) contributing in a large measure to increase your child’s Speed and Accuracy, Learning ability, Concentration, Perceptual capability, Memory & Listening skills; which automatically results in students better performance in all academic subjects.

Why GMAS ?

As you will agree with me that Abacus Education is a need of an hour but affordability in India is a main hindrance in reaching this program to the targeted children. We at GMAS feels that Education is not meant only for rich children but it has to reach masses. In order to make Abacus Education to reach every niche and corner of India we would like to offer a quality Abacus Education at very reasonable price so that affordability should not come in picture. Enclosed please find details how GMAS is much more economical than any other program available in India.

   Basic Idea About Abacus Education

A boon to parents and teachers, a simple technique taught in early childhood, the abacus method originated in China. It is more than a 2000 years old art and skill. This ancient art has survived the onslaught of time, because it is a proven technique for the brain development. Abacus!, the word is not an uncommon word now a days. It is now accepted and practiced in several countries China-principally, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Brunei, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, U.K., and other countries in the Middle East. This helps children far better in all areas where learning is required.

Targeted Segment of Students

         Children in the age group of 6-14 years

         Children who can count numbers from 0-9

         Children with plentiful imagination

         Children who fear mathematics

         Children who lack self-confidence

         Children who would like to improve academically

Benefit To Students
The whole brain development program (particularly right brain) of GMAS–India will result in boosting up memory levels of children, increased their speed and accuracy levels in arithmetical calculations, enhanced intelligence quotient (IQ) and has sharpened concentration and comprehension skills. Because of these skills, photographic memory – an important lifetime skill – is developed. Our step-by-step teaching methodology, guidance and focus on listening and observation skills of students, as well. This enables an average child to comprehend and absorb quickly. Our unique approach has also increased their learning abilities at school – writing skills, logical thinking, and plotting locations on a map – all of which significantly contributes towards and all-round academic proficiency. Our training approach has resulted in reducing carelessness too, which is quite common among many children. This gives them self-confidence to compete in major competitions, as they grow older.

6-14 Best Learning Age
6-14 years of age is the best age group for children’s learning. The development and growth of the nerve tissues begin in 4-6 years old at a rapid. The progress slows down when they reach 12 years of age and the growth reaches 75%.The greatest growth of human brain is during 4-14 years. Therefore it is the best to start at around 6 years of age to utilise the system in the best possible way.

Awards
To motivate the children GMAS provides an official awards at each level, which shows the child’s strength & area of improvement.

Talent education begins in young Kids
Abacus based working of arithmetic functions enable development of lifetime skills, which form a solid academic foundation for children. Global Mental Arithmetic is an internationally well known, powerful Mental Development program. Our successful step by step guidance and motivational teaching method will effectively activate children’s latent mental power and develop them utmost in Analytical, skills, creativity Observation and Photographic Memory. Children become self reliant & self-confident.

More than arithmetic
Many people often assume that learning mental arithmetic is merely a method to improve the speed and accuracy of calculations, for example, adding 10-digit numbers within a few seconds. By itself, it is already an amazing accomplishment for most young children. However, there is more to this because when the children are learning Global Mental Arithmetic, they are actually also undergoing the process developing other aspects of the mind. When the children have acquired an astonishing calculation speed, it is actually only the end result of having developed he following mental abilities : concentration, observation, visualization & imagination, and memory.

Concentration
Concentration is the concentrated and directed attention towards a particular matter with clear reflection that creates a deep image and mental impression. An enhanced concentration leads to better absorption power. Studying will then be a joyful thing for these children.

In the abacus and mental arithmetic education children will be trained to concentrate when Listening to the teachers questions (that ranges from easy to difficult) and then focus on calculating the answers as accurately as possible.

Observation
Observation is the ability to compare and analyze and differentiate objects, motives and steps. It is also a state of alertness and swiftness of the mind and senses. This comes from the need to understand the theoretical requirements of each calculation and at the same time be aware of the time, and promptings from the teachers.

Visualization and Imagination
By using the imagination of the right brain to visualize the abacus in mind, inevitably the powers of visualization would become sharp and clear. Albert Einstein believes that the imagination is important than knowledge, because imagination is the main source of yet-to-be-discovered knowledge.

Memory
Memory is the ability to store and retrieve information and experiences. It has been found that memory in the left brain would not stay long, but an image that is recorded in the right brain would stay on in the mind forever. By stimulating the right brain with mental arithmetic, and in combination with the alertness of the eyes, ears and hands, the ability to store and recall is developed together.

Therefore, the ability to solve 10-digits arithmetic problems in only a few seconds is only a small success in comparison to the actual mental training that has been done in order to achieve the skill to perform rapid calculations.

Course Structure
The lessons are structured level-wise i.e. each level consisting of a 3-month period. The child has to attend one class for duration of 2-hours every week. At the end of each level, a test will be administered and based on its success the child qualifies for the next level. In all, the course is spread in 8 level covering 24 months Approx.
