Benefits Of Learning Vedic Math
The system is based on sixteen Vedic sutras or aphorisms, which are actually word-formulae describing natural ways of solving a whole range of mathematical problems. These sixteen one-line formulae originally written in Sanskrit, which can be easily memorized, enables one to solve long mathematical problems quickly.
Sutras: The Natural Formulae
Sri Bharti Krishna Tirthaji Maharaj, who is generally considered the doyen of this discipline, in his seminal book Vedic Mathematics, wrote about this special use of verses in the Vedic age: "In order to help the pupil memorize the material assimilated, they made it a general rule of practice to write even the most technical and abstruse textbooks in sutras or in verse (which is so much easier — even for the children — to memorize)... So from this standpoint, they used verse for lightening the burden and facilitating the work (by versifying scientific and even mathematical material in a readily assailable form)!"
The Sutras are easy to understand, easy to apply and easy to remember, and the whole work can be truthfully summarized in one word ‘Mental’!
Application of the sutras to specific problems involves rational thinking, which, in the process, helps improve institution that is the bottom – line of the mastery of the mathematical genius of the past and the present.
A Simple & Easy System
Even as regard, to complex problems involving a good number of mathematical operations. Time taken by Vedic method will be a third, a forth, a tenth, or even a much smaller fraction of the time required according to modern (i.e. current) western methods.
And in some very important and striking cases, sums requiring 30, 50, 100 or even more numerous and cumbrous ‘steps’ of working (according to the current western methods) can be answered in a single and simple step of work by Vedic Method!
There are many advantages of using a flexible, refined and efficient mental system like Vedic math. Pupil can come out of confinement of the 'only one correct' way, and make their own methods under the Vedic system
Practitioners of this striking method of mathematical problem-solving opine that Vedic math’s is far more systematic, coherent and unified than the conventional system. It is a mental tool for calculation that encourages the development and use of intuition and innovation, while giving the student a lot of flexibility, fun and satisfaction. Therefore, it's direct and easy to implement in schools — a reason behind its enormous popularity among educationists and academicians.
