|||| VEDIC MATHS ||||
History : An ancient system of
mathematics, Vedic Math is based on simple rules and principles through
which any mathematical problem - be it Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry
or Trigonometry can be solved orally ! Vedic math is a set of sixteen
Sanskrit mathematical formulae or sutras and their corollaries derived from
the Vedas, which were formulated over centuries. The Sutras were lost over
time but thankfully, re- discovered by Jagadguru Swami Sri Bharati Krsna
Tirthaji Maharaja between 1911 and 1918.
[ MATH SUTRAS ]
Natural Formulae: - The system is based on 16 Vedic sutras or aphorisms which are actually word - formulae that describe natural ways of solving a range of mathematical problems.
Some examples of sutras are "By one more than the one before ", " All from 9 and the last from 10", and "Vertically and Crosswise". These 16 one-line formulae originally written in Sanskrit are easy to remember . These formulae enable you to solve long mathematical problems quickly.
A simple system :- According to common opinion, this method is far more systematic, coherent and unified than the conventional system normally followed in schools. Vedic math is mental tool for calculation that encourages the development and use of intuition and innovation, while giving the student a lot of flexibility fun & satisfaction.
This system of mathematics has is so simple, direct and easy to implement that it is even used by scientists at NASA - a striking testimony of its enormous popularity among educationists and academicians the world over.
