VISTA OF VEDIC MATH
By Krishan Gopal

Vedic Mathematics is becoming increasingly popular as more and more
people are introduced to the beautifully unified and easy Vedic
methods. The purpose of this article is to provide information about
developments in education and research and books, articles, courses,
talks etc., and also to bring together those working with Vedic
Mathematics.

If you are working with Vedic Mathematics - teaching it or doing
research - please contact us and let us include you and some
description of your work on newsboard.

Vedic Mathematics can complement modern mathematics. It has already
been included in CBSE(Centerl Board of School Education, India)
curriculum or taught in some US countries. If you are learning Vedic
Maths, let us know how you are getting on and what you think of this
system.

In this article I will tell you how Vedic Mathematics is taking care
of math anxiety, competitive exams, desire to learn new things and the
person who is taking care of Vedic Mathematics it self.

=================================
MATH ANXIETY
=================================

Research shows that more than 85% children fears mathematics.
"students who go into a math class with negative ideas about their
abilities in certain areas of math have grades which reflect that
attitude? And on a different note, the students who have positive
ideas about math have grades reflecting that attitude?"

Why students fear mathematics?
Because
*everybody around them tells that MATH is difficult
*they develop a mind set that MATH is difficult
*lack of innovations in conventional methods of teaching

By about age 12, students who feel threatened by mathematics start to
avoid math courses, do poorly in the few math classes they do take,
and earn low !
scores on math-achievement tests. Some scientists have
theorized that kids having little math aptitude in the first place
justifiably dread grappling with numbers. Even college student's mind
wobbles while doing long calculation.

Mark H. Ashcraft and Elizabeth P. Kirk, both psychologists at
Cleveland (Ohio) State University ran three experiments , each with 50
to 60 students. Experiments included roughly equal numbers of male and
female students who cited low, moderate, or high levels of math
anxiety on a questionnaire.

In the first experiment, Ashcraft and Kirk found that students with a
high level of math anxiety enrolled in fewer math courses, received
lower math grades, and scored worse on working-memory tests involving
numbers than their peers did.

Math anxiety's disruptive effects on working memory appeared in the
next experiment. In a series of trials, students first saw a set of
letters to be remembered. They were then timed as they performed a
mental addition problem. After solving it, volunteers tried to recall
the letters they had seen.

High-math-anxiety students scored poorly on both tasks but especially
on the mental addition. Their performance hit bottom on problems that
involved carrying numbers, such as 47 + 18. However, when permitted to
use pencil and paper during trials, they did as well as students
without math worries did, indicating an underlying math competence.

how can we remove MATH ANXIETY? BY PLAYING MATHEMATICS
But how can we play mathematics?

MATHOMATICA uses the prowess of MATH CARROM, MATH ANTAKSHARI,
MATHOMATICA S/W, VEDIC MATHEMATICS, MAGIC SQUARES and GEO BOARD (All
are in games format) to remove MATH FEAR from children's mind.
Information about MATHOMATICA is available on www.mathomatica.com\.

At MATHOMATICA we can play mathematics. Pragya a student of
MATHOMATICA from Noida(INDIA)!
says that "I hated mathematics. I always
thought that mathematics is a boring subject. I never scored good
marks in mathematics. After joining this course my views has changed
completely. Now, I know that mathematics can be very interesting. I do
not fear mathematics now because it is so much fun out here. I enjoyed
the game of Magic square and Math Carrom. I am confident that I can
solve problems very fast. My speed has gone up considerably."

======================================
COMPETETIVE EXAMS
======================================
This year Vedic Maths workshops conduted almost every week since
january. Some of them were on behalf of Hindustan Times and some
colleges invited Magical Methods at their campus. The participants
were from all age groups and many were engineering students who were
planning to appear for the CAT/CET exams this year. They were become
excited when MagicalMethods visited their venue.
These students definitely were very much interested in learning more
of the advanced level. The Lecture, given by Mr. Pradeep Kumar (ALMNUS
IIMB), has aroused their interest so much that many wanted to learn
more. They were very thrilled with the fast calculation methods of
Vedic mathematics. They definitely agreed that using vedic methods
they can increase their speed levels as well as understanding the
numbers better. They said specifically that even with a little
practice they could see improvement in their performance in the
competitive exams. This is definitely a positive sign that VM is
welcome among the student community.

======================================
DESIRE TO LEARN NEW THINGS
======================================
Guys with the appetite of doing new things and talent gaining also
takes interest in Vedic Mathematics. When we asked Ramnivas (45 years
old) that why do you want to learn Vedic mathematics h!
e told "Next
year I am shifting to Canada. There I'll teach Vedic Mathematics to
Canadian people. I want to spread it as much as I can so that all
people in this world can benefit from it. I'll feel happy to do this".


A series of free Internet lessons by Mr. Pradeep Kumar has been
provided on magicalmethods. Pradeep Kumar is the leading Indian Vedic
Mathematics expert. He is on the expert panel of Times of India and
Indiatimes.com. He did his Mechanical Engineering from Bhagalpur
College of Engineering and MBA from IIM Bangalore with distinction. He
has been exploring the magical world of "Vedic Mathematics" since
1988. And while doing that he took upon the task of returning "Vedic
Mathematics" its lost glory. All of his lessons and researched
products are still available at the website:
http://www.magicalmethods.org/.

He wrote a few books and developed several courses for the students.
He started conducting workshops in 1998. Till date he has conducted
more than 1000 workshops and numerous demonstrations.

His efforts are bringing pleasant results and we are hopeful that one
day these methods will be taught across the globe.
