Vedic Maths also known as quick maths is a collection of various tricks that can help one make faster calculations on a specific set of problems. Quick mathematical calculations are easy to carry out, not being as complex as rocket science. Any ordinary student can learn them at home, through online course either visual or written.
What is Vedic Maths ?
Traditionally Vedic Maths is a ancient art of Indian Mathematics which was re-discovered in the 20th century. It deals with various word formulas making a total of sixteen-sutras. These all help in making complex calculations progress with ease with most of the problems solved in a single line.
To put the truth frankly, there is nothing vedic about the so called Vedic Maths. It was originally a book published on Quick Mathematics by Bharati Krishna Tirthaji in the year 1965 that started the trend. Bharati Krishna Tirthaji’s book clearly says in the initial introduction that this book is not based on Vedic Maths. All the normal decimal mathematical calculations like multiplication and division were originated from India. I’am not insisting on this fact because of my nationality. More on this in another discussion. Let us stay on the fact that approach popularly known as Vedic Mathematics is a metaphor for Mental Mathematics.
