vedic maths

According to his research all of mathematics is based on sixteen Sutras or word-formulae. These formulae describe the way the mind naturally works and are therefore a great help in directing the student to the appropriate method of solution. . 'Vertically and Crosswise` is one of these Sutras.What is vedic mathematics ? ‡ Vedic Mathematics is the name given to the ancient system of Mathematics which was rediscovered from the Vedas between 1911 and 1918 by Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji (1884-1960). For example.

Multipication .

Then we multiply crosswise and add the two results: 3x4+4x2=20. This gives enormous confidence to the pupils who lose their fear of numbers and go on to tackle harder maths in a more open manner. for example. Here is an example of doing this in a special method for long multiplication of numbers near a base (10. We can cross-subtract either way: 96-8=88 or 92-4=88. 96 by 92. The methods are either "special". 96 is 4 below the base and 92 is 8 below. . 1. This is the first part of the answer and multiplying the "differences" vertically 4x8=32 gives the second part of the answer. All the techniques produce one-line answers and most can be dealt with mentally. Multiplication can also be carried out starting from the left. in that they only apply under certain conditions. and 8 is 2 below the base of 10.408. which can be better because we write and pronounce numbers from left to right. Result: 1. For example 7x8. or general. The whole approach of Vedic maths is suitable for slow learners. One very useful application is helping children who are having trouble with their tables above 5x5. 7 is 3 below the base of 10. as it is so simple and easy to use.Method explaination ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ The sutra "vertically and crosswise" has many uses. I would expect all students to be able to do a "3 by 2" long multiplication in their heads. so calculators are not used until Year 10. By the end of Year 8. The great advantage of this system is that the answer can be obtained in one line and mentally. The sutra "vertically and crosswise" is often used in long multiplication. so put down 0 and carry 2.000 etc). This encourages flexibility and innovation on the part of the students. 100. Suppose we wish to multiply 32 by 44. We multiply vertically 2x4=8. We can extend this method to deal with long multiplication of numbers of any size. Finally we multiply vertically 3x4=12 and add the carried 2 =14.

.e.e.. As the addition process ends.Addition ‡ In the convention process we perform the process as follows. thus 234 403 564 +721 and 1922 is the answer . Step (ii): 3 + 0 + 6 + 2 = 11 the carried 1 is added i. step (iii): 2 + 4 + 5 + 7 = 18 carried over 1 is added i. 234 + 403 + 564 + 721 write as 234 403 564 721 ‡ Step (i): 4 + 3 + 4 + 1 = 12 2 retained and 1 is carried over to left. 18 + 1 = 19. the same 19 is retained in the left had most part of the answer. Now 2 retained as digit in the second place (from right to left) of the answer and 1 is carried over to left.
