Math a Fun

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. Research shows that the application
of Vedic mathematics makes use of both parts of
the brain. So versatile is this science that it
has been incorporated in the educational syllabi
of many countries worldwide.

Vedic Mathematics is a system of mental
calculation developed by Shri Bharati Krishna
Tirthaji which he claimed he had based on a lost
appendix of Atharvaveda, an ancient text of the
Indian teachings called Veda. In the Vedic
system 'difficult' problems or huge sums can
often be solved immediately by the Vedic method.
These striking and beautiful methods are just a
part of a complete system of mathematics which is
far more systematic than the modern 'system'.
Math a Fun is a basic course in Vedic Mathematic

About Math a Fun Math a Fun covers Addition,
Subtraction, Division, Multiplication, Square,
Square Root, Cube Root. It is covered over 12
sessions of an hour each. Extensive practice
sessions through worksheets during the course to
help master the subject. Evaluation in the form
of mid session and end of session
test. Successful students will be certified by
ZILS. On Completion of the basic program the
student is eligible for the advanced level
program in Vedic Maths.

Advantages of Learning Vedic Mathematics By
learning Vedic Mathematics at various levels and
through different modules, a student can learn
practically all the different applications of
Mathematics. The information elaborated in the
tabular column given below, is self-explanatory.
Mathematic application Signs Basic
- 3 Multiplication X 3 Division
3 Square x2 3 Square Root 3 Cube
Root 3 Algebra 5x 3 12 3 Geometry 3
Trigonometry 3 Calculus 3
All these applications are possible without the
use of any assisting device such as a calculator.
As against this in UCMAS, Arithmetic applications
are possible only with the help of a device
called an Abacus.

Solve problems using Math a Fun
To multiply 12 by 13   Take a base of 10 but in
this case we have to subtract 10 (base) from the
multiplicand, hence the preface should be
positive () to show that the numbers are greater
than the base.     EXAMPLE 1   Put
number 12 and 13 as.. 12 2
X 13 3

15 / 6 The answer is
156.   EXAMPLE 2   To multiply 12 by 17 ..
12 2
X 17 7

Q1. What is Vedic Mathematics? A1. Vedic
Mathematics is the name given to the ancient
system of Mathematics which was rediscovered from
the Vedas. Q2. Who discovered these Vedic
Methods and from where? A2. This ancient system
of Mathematics was rediscovered from the Vedas
between 1911 and 1918 by Sri Bharati Krisna
Tirthaji. Q3. What is the most significant
feature of the Vedic Mathematics? A3. The most
striking feature of the Vedic system is its
coherence. Instead of a collection of unrelated
techniques the whole system is beautifully
interrelated and unified. These related
techniques are all easily understood. This
unifying quality is very fulfilling, and makes
mathematics easy and enjoyable and encourages
innovation. Q4. What is the single most basic
advantage of teaching Vedic Methods to
students? A4. In the Vedic system 'difficult'
problems or large, complicated sums can often be
solved immediately by using simple Vedic methods.
These striking methods are just a part of a
complete system of mathematics which is far more
systematic than the modern 'system'. Vedic
Mathematics has a coherent and unified structure
and the methods are complementary, direct and
easy. There are many advantages in using a
flexible, mental system. Students can invent
their own methods they are not limited to the
one 'correct' method. This leads to more
creativity.

Q5. What kinds of Arithmetic problems find
application in Vedic Maths? A5. Interest in the
Vedic system is growing in education where
mathematics teachers are looking for something
better and finding the Vedic system is the
answer. Initially, students learn the Vedic
methods of doing Multiplication, Division,
finding Squares, Square Roots and Cube Roots.
Students who have learnt to apply Vedic Methods
in his / her day to day calculation for a minimum
duration of 90 days can be taught further
applications of Vedic Methods, such as
derivatives of the basic formulae and there
after its applications in Algebra, Geometry,
Trigonometry and Calculus. Yes, Vedic Methods
find applications, in all branches of
Mathematics. Q6. On what principles is Vedic
Maths based? A6. All of Vedic mathematics is
based on sixteen Sutras, or word-formulae. For
example, 'Vertically and Crosswise is one of
these Sutras. These formulae describe the way the
mind naturally works and therefore help in
directing the student towards the appropriate
method of solving a problem. Q7. Does one need
to memorize numbers and other complicated
computations, in Vedic Maths? A7. There is no
need for students to memorize tables up to 20
times 20 or remember all the prime numbers up to
100, and such other facts. Vedic mathematics has
its own set of systematic and scientific
principles which when applied make the
computation very simple and easy.The simplicity
of Vedic Mathematics means that calculations can
be carried out mentally.
11
Q8. How relevant is Vedic Maths 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 Maths 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.
12
Q11. What are the advantages of applying Vedic
Maths 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.
