Vedic Mathematics - a gift given to this world by the ancient


sages of India. A system which is far more simple and enjoyable than modern mathematics.

Vedic Mathematics, is based on Atharva Veda, which was


rediscovered between 1911 & 1918 by Sri Bharathi Krisna Tirthaji Maharaja.

Vedic Mathematics is based on Sixteen Sutra, which is


called as Formulae or Techniques are very easy to follow and apply.

For instance, 'Vertically and Crosswise` is one of these Sutras. It describes the way the mind works and is therefore a great help in directing the student to the appropriate method of solution. By using this technique difficult and huge problems can often be solved easily & quickly by the Vedic method. Research shows that the application of Vedic mathematics makes use of both parts of the brain. Today Vedic Math has become part of the education syllabus in U.K, Ireland, Holland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and USA and also picking up in Sweden Germany, Italy, Poland and Singapore.

Q8. How relevant is Vedic Math in the current school curriculum?

A8. By using Vedic methods students comes to know the answer in few seconds. They find the principles of the Vedic system systematic, simple and methodical. Research is being carried out in many areas including the effects of learning Vedic Math on children; developing new, powerful yet easy applications of the Vedic Sutras in geometry, calculus, computing etc. It is perhaps, the most refined and efficient mathematical system possible.
Q9. The students have been used to learning a different method of solving the arithmetic problems in school. Wont the Vedic methods be confusing, if they are taught to them?

A9. No, absolutely not. By using Vedic methods students will be able to solve the problems promptly and will be able to apply appropriate Vedic methods to solve different problems. Once they have been able to understand the application of the various sutras or principles, they themselves will want to apply them in their day to day work, as they will find these methods simpler and faster as compared to standard computation and problem solving methods, in use currently.
Q10. With devices like calculators currently being used widely, why should there be any need for learning Vedic methods?

A10. A calculator cannot think for students. They must understand the basic principles involved in the calculations. Some times a person gets varied answers while using a calculator. For example while solving a problem like: Two plus three times four equals..? By using a calculator a student may get 20 as an answer, others may get an answer of 14. Therefore simple computational tools are not enough. An understanding of the problem and the correct application of a method are both very essential.

Q11. What are the advantages of applying Vedic Math technique as against using other methods/ tools; such as the Abacus? A11. No doubt, Abacus is a nice tool for teaching Mathematics that has originated in China. However, there are certain shortcomings. Firstly, students cannot learn it without the use of an Abacus, an instrument which contains beads. Secondly, it takes a long time to learn its application for addition and subtraction and thereafter using these applications in Multiplication and Division. As against this, a student can learn the basic principles and methods of Vedic Mathematics, and apply them in problems relating to Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Square, Square Root and Cube Root, in as little as 12 sessions. Besides, there is no dependency on instruments such as the calculator or an abacus. Q12. How does Vedic Mathematics help a student in the present scenario? A12. Many times when a student secures less marks in Mathematic, and is ask the reason for it, he / she says I could not complete the paper in time or I could complete the paper, but could not get enough time to correct my mistakes. By using Vedic methods students can complete their work in a shorter period of time. Q13. If students use Vedic methods they will finish their work quickly and wont have anything to do. Will they not get bored? A13. Students who use these methods and complete their work in less time can utilize the remaining time to check their work for possible mistakes. They can correct their mistakes and get more marks.
