Have you heard about Vedic Math Tricks? The kind that turn regular math-hating students into genuine human calculators, nearly overnight? That may sound like an overstatement, especially if you’ve never heard about such thing as this unique mathematical system.
If that’s the case, worry not… this post will provide all the information you need to seriously start impressing everyone with your amazing skills with numbers.
And it’s going to be so easy that you’ll surely wonder “why didn’t they teach me these amazing techniques at school?”
What is the deal with Vedic Math, exactly?
Many people apparently think Vedic maths are ancient mathematical systems created by the Hindu people. They’re (mostly) wrong. While this branch of maths was developed by a Hindu scholar, its inception is actually dated by less that century.
It was a very wise man called Bharati Krishna Tirthaji Maharaja who introduced Vedic Mathematics, early in the 20t century. According to Mr. Bharati, he developed this innovative set of math tricks after studying the Vedas: a set of scriptures dating back to 1500 BC, which are often regarded as the cornerstones of Hindu faith. From studying these ancient scriptures, he established a set of 16 Sutras (aphorisms or basic rules), which as you can see from the following picture look very much like a riddle. No worries though; you don’t necessarily have to study these rules to benefit from Vedic Math.
Practical Vedic Math tricks that you can learn in 5 minutes:
The term “Veda” means “to know”, and while many scholars are unable to tell how exactly Bharati derived his unique brand of “Vedic Math” from those scriptures, truth of the matter is that’s just what he did. But enough of back story for now… we will now be focusing on the main point, which is showing your a collection of simple and highly effective vedic math tricks that you can use to become a true human calculator.
Trick #1: Multiplication of numbers, without using numbers.
This is an extremely simple way to multiply numbers, which is remarkable because it doesn’t require actually using numbers to perform the calculation. Instead, you’ll be essentially drawing lines and counting the intersection of such lines. It’s really simple, and you will learn this impressive trick after watching this short video once:
Trick #2: How to perform large multiplications mentally.
Have you ever wished you could do mental multiplication as easily as you can add numbers? If that’s the case, you will very much enjoy the following video. After learning this technique, you’ll feel like throwing your calculator out the window.
Trick #3: How to mentally divide huge numbers by 9.
Similar to the previous tutorial, except this one focuses on dividing numbers by 9. It’s such a simple procedure that you’ll have a hard time forgetting how it’s done. Warning: after watching this you will feel a lot closer to being a human calculator. You perception of reality might be serious affected once you realize you can do such impressive calculation without need for a pen or paper, even.
Trick #4: Your hands: the only multiplication tables you’ll ever need.
After watching the previous tricks, this one may seem too trivial, right? Well, don’t let yourself be deceived with its simplicity. Even if you are already familiar with the basic multiplication tables, this is still an amazing trick that will seriously shatter your perception that math is a complicated thing.
Trick #5: Mentally calculate square numbers in a few seconds.
Ok, this one is even more impressive than the previous. And it’s blazing fast, as well! After you watch this 3 minute video just once, you will never again have to reach to your calculator to calculate square numbers… because that would actually slow you down!
That should be enough for now. There are many other Vedic Math tricks that you should check out. There are all kinds of tricks available to help with improve just about all of your mathematical skills, from calculating cube roots and divide bigger numbers, as well as being able to mentally calculate operations you never even though it would be possible for a human.
If you want to learn more of these Vedic mathematic tricks, I recommend watching more of the amazing video tutorials available at the Glad2Teach website. There are some advanced videos available that will impress even serious mathematicians. And if you’re really serious about learning about Vedic Maths, I recommend you check the source, which is of course the original book on this subject by the great Bharati Krishna Tirthaji.
Have fun with numbers, and make sure to pass along this information to anyone you think may benefit from using it!икони
