# Vedic Maths

• Vedic Mathematics is a collection of Techniques/Sutras to solve mathematical arithmetics in an easy and faster way. It consists of 16 Sutras (Formulae) and 13 sub-sutras (Sub Formulae) which can be used for problems involved in arithmetic, algebra, geometry, calculus, conics.

• Vedic Mathematics is a system of mathematics which was discovered by Indian mathematician Jagadguru Shri Bharathi Krishna Tirthaji in the period between A.D. 1911 and 1918 and published his findings in a Vedic Mathematics Book by Tirthaji Maharaj

• Veda is a Sanskrit word which means ‘Knowledge’.

• Using regular mathematical steps, solving problems sometimes are complex and time-consuming. But using Vedic Mathematic’s General Techniques (applicable to all sets of given data) and Specific Techniques (applicable to specific sets of given data), numerical calculations can be done very fast.

# Abacus

The abacus also called a counting frame, is a calculating tool that was in use in the ancient Near East, Europe, China, and Russia, centuries before the adoption of the written Hindu–Arabic numeral system.

Purpose: Teach arithmetic to children, To serve as a calculating tool

Abacus is a simple tool or hardware used for performing rapid arithmetic calculations. Calculations based on abacus were invented in ancient times and now widely used a brain development programme. It consists of a rectangular frame holding a number of vertically arranged rods, on which beads slide up and down.

• One of the most popular calculating methods from ancient times.

• Children do fast calculations in mind by visualizing Abacus bead movements.

• Researches prove that Abacus learners use both sides of the brain- left hemisphere & right hemisphere.

• Highly effective in improving the concentration level of children.

• Mental arithmetic Calculations

• Improves Concentration skills

• Improves imagination skills

• Sharpen memory power

• Boost confidence

• Personality Development
