'Vedic Maths'is the name given to the ancient system of mathematics, or, to be precise, a unique technique of calculations based on simple rules and principles, with which any mathematical problem - be it arithmetic, algebra, geometry or trigonometry - can be solved, orally!. The system is based on 16 Vedic sutras or aphorisms or definition, which are actually word-formulae describing natural ways of solving a whole range of mathematical problems. Vedic Maths 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.
Practitioners of this striking method of mathematical problem-solving opine that Vedic maths is far more systematic, coherent and unified. For children, Vedic Maths is useful in removing the fear for Maths, creating an interest in Maths, cracking scholarship exams, facilitating creativity through pattern observation & recognition.
