### Vedic Maths

Vedic mathematics is a world's fastest way of doing maths where one can do complex calculations like 998*993 in less than5 seconds and 758656 /9 in less than ten seconds.

The system covers not only addition, subtraction, multiplication and division but also teaches how to solve complex mathematics like algebra, geometry, calculus and trigonometry. Some of the most complex and advanced problems can be solved using Vedic math methods with extreme ease and at least 10-15 time faster than the conventional methods.

#### About Vedic Maths?

Vedic Mathematics is the name given to the ancient system of Indian Mathematics which was rediscovered from the Vedas between 1911 and 1918 by Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji (1884-1960). According to his research all of mathematics is based on 16 suthras and 16 upa suthras or word-formulae. For example, Cross Vertical method is one of these Sutras. These formulae describe the way the mind naturally works and are therefore a great help in directing the student to the appropriate method of solution.

Perhaps the most striking feature of the Vedic Maths system is its coherence. The whole system is interrelated and unified: the general multiplication method, for example, is easily reversed to allow one-line divisions, and the simple squaring method can be reversed to give one-line square roots. And, these are all easily understood.

Difficult arithmetic problems and huge sums can often be solved immediately by Vedic Maths methods. These striking and beautiful methods are a part of a system of arithmetic which Vedic Maths claims to be far more methodical than the modern system. "Vedic" Mathematics is said to manifest the coherent and unified structure of arithmetic, and its methods are complementary, direct and easy.

The simplicity of the Vedic Maths system means that calculations can be carried out mentally, though the methods can also be written down. There are many advantages in using a flexible, mental system. Kids can find their own methods; they are not limited to one method. This leads to more creative, interested and intelligent kids.

#### History of Vedic Maths

Vedic Mathematics is the ancient system of mathematics which was rediscovered early last century by Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji (henceforth referred to as Bharati Krsna). The Sanskrit word "Veda" means "knowledge". The Vedas are ancient writings whose date is disputed but which date from at least several centuries BC. According to Indian tradition the content of the Vedas was known long before writing was invented and was freely available to everyone. It was passed on by word of mouth. The writings called the Vedas consist of a huge number of documents (there are said to be millions of such documents in India, many of which have not yet been translated) and these have recently been shown to be highly structured, both within themselves and in relation to each other. Subjects covered in the Vedas include Grammar, Astronomy, Architecture, Psychology, Philosophy, Archery etc.,

A hundred years ago Sanskrit scholars were translating the Vedic documents and were surprised at the depth and breadth of knowledge contained in them. But some documents headed "Ganita Sutras", which means mathematics, could not be interpreted by them in terms of mathematics. One verse, for example, said "in the reign of King Kamse famine, pestilence and unsanitary conditions prevailed". This is not mathematics they said, but nonsense. Bharati Krsna was born in 1884 and died in 1960. He was a brilliant student, obtaining the highest honours in all the subjects he studied, including Sanskrit, Philosophy, English, Mathematics, History and Science. When he heard what the European scholars were saying about the parts of the Vedas which were supposed to contain mathematics he resolved to study the documents and find their meaning. Between 1911 and 1918 he was able to reconstruct the ancient system of mathematics which we now call Vedic Mathematics.
