Vedic Mathematics was reconstructed from ancient Vedic texts early last century by Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji (1884-1960). It is a complete system of mathematics that has many surprising properties and applies at all levels and areas of mathematics, pure and applied.
It has a remarkable coherence and simplicity that make it easy to do and easy to understand. Through its amazingly easy methods, complex problems can often be solved in one line. The system is based on sixteen word-formulae (Sutras) that relate to the way in which we use our minds. The benefits of using Vedic Mathematics include more enjoyment of maths, increased flexibility, creativity and confidence, improved memory, greater mental agility and so on.
This Elementary Manual is the second of three self-contained Manual designed for teachers who wish to teach the Vedic system, either to a class or to other adults/ teachers. It is also suitable for anyone who would like to teach themselves the basic Vedic methods.
