Vedic Maths is the name given to the ancient system of Indian Mathematics which was rediscovered from the Vedas between 1911 & 1918 by Sri Bharati Krishna Tirthaji. As per the research carried out by him, all of mathematics is based on Sixteen Sutras or world formulae. For instance, 'Vertically and Crosswise' 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 correct method of solution. The most spectacular feature of this Vedic system is perhaps its coherence. Rather than a hotch-potch of unrelated techniques the entire system is beautifully interrelated and unified; the general multiplication method, for instance, is easily reversed to allow one line divisions and the simple squaring method can be reversed to give one line square roots, and one can understand all these quite easily. This unifying quality is extremely satisfying, it makes mathematics quite easy and enjoyable and also encourages innovation.
In the Vedic system 'difficult' problems or huge sums can often be solved instantly by the Vedic method. These impressive and beautiful methods are just a part of an entire system of mathematics which is far more systematic than the modern system. Vedic Mathematics manifests the coherent and unified structure of mathematics and the methods are complementary, direct as well as easy. The simplicity of Vedic Mathematics means that one can carry out the calculations mentally. There are several benefits in using a flexible, mental system. People can even invent their own methods, as they are not limited to the one 'correct' method. This leads to more creative, interested and intelligent pupils.
Features of Vedic Maths
Improves Memory: The simplicity and ease of Vedic Mathematics means that one can carry out the calculations mentally. Remember that mathematical objects are mental objects. In working directly with these objects as in mental maths you get closer to the objects and understand them and their properties and relationships much better. Of course there are times, particularly early on when physical activities are a great help to understanding.
Increases Flexibility: In modern teaching you generally have one way of doing a calculation. This is rigid and boring, and intelligent and creative students rebel against it. Once you let variations, you get all sorts of benefits. Children become more creative. The teacher is encouraging innovation and the children respond. In the Vedic system there are general methods, that always work, for instance, a method of multiplication that can be applied to any numbers. However, the Vedic system has several special methods, when a calculation has some special characteristic that can be used to find the answer more easily. And, it's great fun when you spot that method.
Promotes Creative: All these features of Vedic Math encourage students to be creative in doing their math. Being naturally creative students like to devise their own methods of solution. The Vedic system seeks to cultivate intuition, having a conscious proof or explanation of a method beforehand is not necessary in the Vedic methodology. This appeals to the artistic types who prefer not to use analytical ways of thinking.
Efficient and Quick: In the Vedic system, 'difficult' problems or huge sums can often be solved instantly. These striking and beautiful methods are just a part of an entire system of mathematics which is far more systematic than the modern system. Vedic Mathematics manifests the coherent and unified structure naturally inherent in mathematics and the methods are direct, easy and complementary.
Interest in the Vedic system is growing in education where mathematics teachers are looking for something better and finding the Vedic system as the answer. Research is being carried out in several areas including the effects of learning Vedic Maths on children, developing new, powerful, but easy applications of the Vedic Sutras in Geometry, calculus, computing, etc. However the real beauty and effectiveness of Vedic mathematics cannot be completely appreciated without actually practicing the system.
