WHAT IS VEDIC MATHEMATICS?
Vedic Mathematics is a complete and coherent system offering simple, direct techniques through use of our natural thought processes. It is a brilliant approach to maths problems and has a growing interest around the world, particularly in India. It was developed and expounded by Shankaracarya Sri Bharati Krishna Tirtha during the first half of the 20th century. The system offers lightning fast calculation methods. It is based on only a few short rules, 16 sutras and a similar number of sub-sutras, and these form the substratum of mathematical thinking. They provide short and pithy rules of thumb, general and specific principles together with methods of working.
This unified system offers an enjoyable and mentally harmonious approach which makes maths easy to do and easy to understand. Students are also encouraged to apply their creativity and this leads to a deeper understanding of mathematics, greater mental agility, improved memory and increased speed.
