ABOUT THE COURSE / COURSE OVERVIEW
India has produced many mathematicians whose discoveries have benefitted the world. One such mathematician was Swami Bharati Krishna Tirtha (1884 – 1960). As a student of the Vedas from 1911 – 1918, he stumbled upon few Sutras (aphorisms or word-formulae). After extensive research on these sutras, he reconstructed 16 Sutras and 13 Upa-sutras using which numerical calculations can be done in simpler and faster ways. In Vedic Mathematics, unlike the conventional methods, there are many ways to arrive at a solution for a problem. This gives us the liberty to choose the technique most convenient for us. This is the beauty of Vedic Mathematics; it can be understood easily by people of any calibre. It enhances the ability to approach and solve any mathematical problem.
Vedic Mathematics is a blessing to everybody in this day and age when people’s numerical skills are deteriorating as the use of calculators is increasingly commencing at a younger age. Vedic Mathematics’ shorter, quicker and easy to remember techniques enable any student to do calculations faster than they would with conventional methods. Students of Vedic Mathematics dispel their fear of mathematics and gain a new-found confidence to work on any mathematical problem without apprehension. This Vedic Mathematics course aims to promote the traditional knowledge of Mathematics mastered by the mathematicians of ancient India.
Being an enthusiastic educator, trainer and motivational speaker, Vinay Nair has been imparting the knowledge of Vedic Mathematics, since 2009. He founded the ‘School of Vedic Maths’, with an aim to not only teach techniques but also to facilitate productive thinking. In collaboration with CIF, he conducts courses, workshops and seminars in schools, colleges and camps on Foundation & Advanced Courses of Vedic Mathematics for an audience anywhere between 10 to 75 years of age. The strong belief that learning Vedic Mathematics improves Observation, Concentration and Creativity apart from the Numerical Ability is what leads this young educator to travel around imparting this ancient system. His approach to teaching is modern and accessible whereby he facilitates students to learn by discovering new methods of their own.
The course is open to all those who are 12 years or older and interested in studying the beautiful subject of Vedic Mathematics, irrespective of their profession or age. It is neither limited to the young nor to the elder. It is for anyone seeking to improve their mathematical skills, the ancient Indian way.
