Speed Mathematics using the Vedic system facilitates Mathematics learning. The average pupil will be able to work out calculations such as 46X44, 95X95 and 116X114 mentally, often faster than a calculator. Paper and pencil will still be required for most questions, but the speed and accuracy of calculations will improve significantly. This book provides smart strategies for building a foundation in Number work and Algebra. These two areas are the building blocks in mathematics. Once pupils can master these aspects they will feel confident to tackle other branches of mathematics. This book is suitable for children from 10 to 14 years of age, but adults who have found mathematics difficult in the past will also benefit from it.
The author's first book 'Speed Mathematics Using the Vedic System' has gained a significant following. This sequel 'Mathematics Tricks using the Vedic System' has more tricks that will prove useful for middle, high School(grades 10 & 11) and college students. For high school students the following topics in Speed Mathematics will prove useful:Factorising/factoring, indices/exponents, simultaneous equations,quadratic equations and trigonometry. The same set of students will find duplex methods of squaring 2 & 3-digit numbers, expanding algebraic expressions,finding square roots,cube roots and solving problems involving repetitive percentage change also useful. In addition some topics in statistics are included.Several mnemonics are also included to help the younger student remember pi, basic trig as well as understand the differences between mean, median, mode and range.Hopefully, teachers will see the value of these techniques in order to motivate their students.

INTRODUCTION Now–a -days speed math system ( like Vedic Mathematics , Trachtenberg System) are gaining widespread popularity among students as well as teachers. Speed math refers to faster methods and techniques to solve arithmetic calculation mentally. It saves considerable amount of time in competitive exam. So it is worthy to study speed math. In order to compute given calculation mentally, one need to recall right kind of specific method (shortcut) out of 1000's. Instead of doing so, i) Is it possible to compute any arithmetic operation (like addition, multiplication) quickly by using scientific approach ? ii) Is it possible to derive all methods in speed math by using unique principle ? iii) Is there any unique secret (principle) behind speed mathematics ? After researching speed math about 2-3 years, I realized that there is unique secret (principle) behind speed mathematics !! This book explains entire speed mathematics by using single principle and gives introduction to new number system called as global number system. It extends VM framework in some of the area like divisibility, n'th root.

" - Albert Einstein “ In my opinion, all things in nature occur mathematically.” ― René Descartes " Mathematical Knowledge adds vigour to the mind, free it from prejudices & superstition " - John Arbuthnot Some mathematician, I believe, has said that true pleasure lies not in the discovery of truth, but in the search for it." -Tolstoy "Mathematics is the queen of science, and arithmetic the queen of mathematics." - Carl Friedrich Gauss "Truth is ever to be found in the simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things." - Isaac Newton ------------------------------ Generally, researcher invests its invaluable time on research. Research book in country like America etc are more than 200 $. Though some idea, concepts seems trivial , but understand that even it takes lot of time to invent / discover. Example - decimal value system may seems simple to us, but it takes thousands of year to our ancient sages to invent the symbol for numbers & decimal value system. In true sense, researcher can understand the significance of other research, because it knows value of time that other researcher invest. This book is result of many years research. The price of book doesn't reflect value of time invested. Still by considering readers comment, price of book is changed. Now reader can enjoy the book at lower price.

Publisher: CRB Publishing
Think Fast with Vedic Math Secrets and Mental Calculation Tricks! When you read Fast Math, you’ll discover Vedic Math Techniques for mastering basic functions: Addition Subtraction Multiplication Division and so much more! With this fascinating guide, you can quickly and easily determine the square roots of perfect square numbers – and perform many other feats of mental gymnastics. These Vedic secrets mean you don’t have to memorize mathematical facts anymore. By grasping the inner workings of math structures, you can make sense of all kinds of numbers – without a calculator or a computer! The written addition most of us learn in school relies on simple and slow systems like “carry the 1” to get answers. There is an alternative – Vedic math moves at the speed of thought. Instead of summing columns and moving from right to left, Vedic math starts on the left. Add the largest numbers in your head, remember this figure, sum the smaller numbers – and then just total the figures in your head! By holding numbers in your head while calculating others, you strengthen your working/short-term memory. This mental sharpness pays off in all parts of your life – from remembering names to articulating your thoughts more clearly.
This book brings the techniques from Vedic Mathematics and Trachtenberg System together. We have not attempted to do a comparative study of these techniques and make a judgment on which one is better. Instead we have simply, presented the techniques in a sequence that makes most sense. There are inherent strengths in these two approaches. While looking at all the speed improvement techniques, we have ensured that we focus on techniques for defect prevention and error minimization as well. Speed coupled with improved accuracy must be our paramount focus during any problem solving process. This book attempts to elucidate several key techniques, examples and practice problem sets.
The remarkable system of Vedic mathematics was created after careful study of ancient Sanskrit texts early last century. The Vedic system with its direct, easy and flexible approach forms a complete system of mental mathematics (though the methods can also be written down) and brings out the naturally coherent and unified structure of mathematics. Many of the features and techniques of this unique system are truly amazing in their efficiency and originality. Being a mental system, Vedic Mathematics encourages creativity and innovation. Mental mathematics increases mental agility, improves memory, the ability to hold ideas in the mind and promotes confidence, as well as being of great practical use. This course consists of three textbooks an Answer Book and a Teacher's Guide. The course is aimed at 11-14 year old pupils though some of it is very suitable for children from 8 years. Vedic Mathematics is being taught in many schools world-wide with great success: many top mathematics prizes have been won by students of this system.
