VISTA OF VEDIC MATH
By Anon on Wednesday, August 15, 2007  10:18 am: Edit PostVISTA 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 mathachievement 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 workingmemory 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. Highmathanxiety 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.
