Vedic Math For Children

Vedic Math is an ancient system of mathematics. The system makes math easy and enjoyable, and the varying methods encourage innovation. In the Vedic system, difficult problems can often be solved immediately by the Vedic method.

The simplicity of Vedic Math means that calculations can be carried out mentally.

One key feature about Vedic Math is flexibility. There is more than one solution to a problem. Children become more creative. With a variety of methods to doing a calculation, mathematics is no longer rigid and boring!

In Vedic Math, children are not limited to the one “correct” method. This leads to more creative, interested and motivated students, resulting in improved memory and greater mental ability.

The sixteen sutras of Vedic Math are given in word form such as “By One More Than the One Before” or “Vertically and Crosswise”. They describe ways of using the mind, thereby giving direction to the mind, enabling the mind to solve algebra, geometry, calculus and other complex mathematical problems. Vedic Math concepts are simple to apply and as a result, answers can be obtained in one line or even mentally, thereby greatly expanding the thinking ability of the mind.
