Mental Math and Vedic Math In Modern Times

Mar 6, 2008
In our modern age of computers and calculators, a lot of people have practically stopped developing skills of mental arithmetic and mental math. What school child hasn't asked, "Why do I need to learn that? I can do it on my calculator...blah blah"

That really puts a teacher on the spot. And that is just the beginning; learning tables, multiplying and dividing by hand, are in danger of becoming a chore instead of a challenge. Who wants to wasted their time mastering a complex skill that a machine can do in a fraction of the time?

Vedic Mathematics was recently discovered in ancient India after the Vedic literature were uncovered and decoded. It is a brand new way of mental calculation and offers amazing alternative to mental math strategies. Some of the Vedic Math mental strategies and methods are so original and unique that it has cause a revolution in recent years as it is becoming more and more acceptable to the mainstream math experts.

Well....Vedic Math is attractive for a good many reasons. It is extremely easy to learn, it is effective and it has a profound simplicity to it. Most of all, because you can achieve brilliant results in a relatively short time, it encourages the learner to learn in a fun way. Imagine, what better incentive to learn your math tables than to find you can beat your calculator timing with your own mental calculaitons?

Now, these may seem like math tricks, more a part of old-fashioned rote-learning than a route to better fundamental understanding. But, the real magic of Vedic Math is that it has so many choices, it encourages ordinary kids and adults alike to analyse their sums to find the easiest way to a solution.

There is no correct way to solve a problem, and finding the most suitable math trick leads the learner gently towards a more mathematical and logical way of thinking. Vedic Math is non-restrictive, and it is all about looking for patterns and ways to simplify a problem. This leads to a flowing, flexible approach and develops excellent lateral thinking skills.

If you are passionate about the beauty of mathematics, you will find Vedic Math alternative approach fascinating territory. The 16 Sutras and 13 Corollaries of Vedic Math form a useful platform to speed up your mental calculations dramatically, and you will enjoy finding ways to link them back to traditional western Mental Math. Many of them have neat algebraic proofs!
