Why Do The Kids Need to Learn Vedic Maths

Vedic mathematics is the quickest and most straightforward method for problem-solving.

Mathematics is an incomparable system of power and elegance that allows them to perform mental calculations at incredible speed and with extraordinary ease.

Because the solutions to more complex problems are easier to understand, you can move faster.

Vedic mathematics enables you to learn more quickly and easily, and it works with any number system.

In a single step, Vedic mathematics will segment, multiply and add decimal numbers.

Usually multiplying big numbers can be a time-consuming task.

But Vedic mathematics is a simple method of multiplying that is much faster than traditional methods.

History of Vedic mathematics

Vedic mathematics is a set of ancient tricks and techniques for performing arithmetic operations more quickly and efficiently.

Vedic Math is derived from the Vedas, especially the Atharva Veda.

Between 1911 and 1918, Indian mathematician Jagadguru Sri. Bharati Krishna Tirthaji revived it.

In 1965, he published that work in a book titled Vedic Mathematics.

It is made up of 16 sutras and 13 sub sutras.

Bharati Krishna Tirtha was born in Puri Village, Orissa in March 1884. As a student.

He excelled in science, humanities, and Sanskrit in addition to mathematics.

He was deeply committed to meditation and spiritualism.

He claims to have learned the Vedic sutras while meditating for eight years in a forest near Sringeri.

Krishna Tirtha claims that he learned the sutras from Vedas, such as the Atharva Veda and the Rig Veda.

As a result, the term Vedic Mathematics was coined. In 1957, he wrote the first 16 sutras.

Benefits of Vedic Mathematics

Math is always a nightmare for students due to the calculations and with the help of the right tutors, it can be learned easily.

Angle provides foundation courses in Math where students get a simplified process of normal math with the use of Vedic Math which can be learned by anyone.

It makes math more interesting for students.

Benefits of learning Vedic mathematics include.

  • Improves memory and concentration
  • Helps inaccurate guessing
  • Makes the calculations faster
  • Need to learn tables up to 9 only
  • Simplifies calculations
  • For better performance in competitive exams

Vedic mathematics tricks and tips

Some examples of Vedic Mathematics tricks have been given below:

Multiplication of a number by 5

⇒ When a number is an even number

        2686*5 =?

    Step 1: Divide the number by 2 

       2686 / 2 = 1343

    Step 2: Add 0

       The answer is 2686*5 = 13430

⇒ When a number is an odd number

        3115*5 =?

    Step 1: first subtract 1 from the number

        3115-1 = 3114

    Step 2: divide by 2

        3114 / 2 = 1557

    Step 3: add 5

        The answer is 3115*5 = 15575

Multiplication of any 2 digit number ( numbers between 11 and 19)

⇒ Let us take two numbers 17 and 15, multiply them

   1. Add the unit digit of the smallest number to the larger number

        5 + 17 = 22

   2. Multiply the result by 

       22*10 = 220

   3. Multiply unit digit of both 2 digit numbers

       7*5 = 35

   4. Add both the number

       220 + 35 = 255

       255 is the answer

Most people avoid calculation when they are younger, not realizing that everything they will end up doing revolves around it, especially when it comes to money and payment.

Mathematics is all around us.

A clear understanding and mastery of mathematics open up endless realms of possibilities and genius and that is the result of Vedic mathematics.
