It is generally well-known that our modern numbering system originated millennia ago in India and came to us through the Arab nations during the middle ages. What is not known however is that this remarkable system was accompanied by methods of calculation that were both simple and profound.
These methods, lost over time, were recently rediscovered and presented in a text entitled “Vedic Mathematics” by Shri Bharati Krishna Tithaji and this text will provide the material for the course.
Experience the “magic” of Vedic Mathematics in performing very easily calculations which are normally regarded as difficult. Multiplication, division, squaring, recurring decimals and many other topics will be covered including an introduction the Vedic numerical code, with the help of which, an ancient Vedic prayer provides the value of ∏ to 30 decimal places!
Robert McNeill has for many years taught maths in schools at all ages and levels of ability. Vedic Mathematics were included in order to inspire, delight and enlighten the students.
Classes will be held online via Zoom.
