Vedic Mathematics is the name given to set of words formulae as invented by Jagadguru Bharti Krishna Maharaj. The formulae contains secrets of calculation and solving mathematical problems mentally.

#### Is it taken from Vedas?

As such, the science is not taken from Vedas. It is an original endeavor of the author. However, the appendices to the Atharvaveda contains some parallel references.

#### What is the best age to start learning it?

The techniques of Vedic Mathematics are not accepted by the normal school systems. Using Vedic Mathematics, the answer to a particular problem is obtained directly without any intermediary steps. However, students are given marks for showing the intermediary steps and the calculation procedure involved in solving a particular problem. Hence any particular Vedic Maths technique should be thought to a student only after he has mastered the traditional way (the method thought in school)

#### How is VM different from the abacus technique of calculation?

The abacus system of calculation is Japanese/Chinese whilst VM is Indian. Secondly, the abacus system deals with arithmetic and brain development and hence it is taught to students of the age group of 5 to 13 years. On the other hand, VM not only covers arithmetic but also algebra, geometry, calculus and other advanced branches of mathematics. Hence, it is suitable for students of any age.
