Vedic Mathematics is the name given to the ancient system of Indian Mathematics which was rediscovered from the Vedas. These formulae are based upon how the mind naturally works and are therefore a great help to direct the student. It deals with various Vedic mathematical formulae and their applications for carrying out tedious and cumbersome arithmetic operations and executing them mentally.
The Vedic system presents a new approach to mathematics, offering simple, direct, one line, mental solutions to mathematical problems. They are easy to remember, easy to understand and a delight to use. This approach provides a corrective methodology to the problem of mental slavery to calculations. The simplicity allows for the calculations to be carried out mentally, simplifying large multiplications into one line answers instead of engaging in the tedious school taught method.
