<ul><li>Vedic mathematics is a system of mathematics consisting of a list of 16 basic sutras, or aphorisms obtained from Vedas. </li></ul><ul><li>They were presented by a Hindu scholar and mathematician, Bharati Krishna Tirthaji Maharaja , during the early part of the 20th century. </li></ul>What is Vedic Mathematics?
<ul><li>Most important sources for Vedic Mathematics are found in Astronomy, Astrology and Kalpa ( rules for rituals and ceremonies). </li></ul><ul><li>Evidence is usually in the form of sutra s (a peculiar form of writing which is very concise and often uses a poetic style to capture the essence of argument or result). </li></ul>Evidence of Vedic Mathematics
<ul><li>Born in India in 1884. </li></ul><ul><li>Awarded the title of Saraswati by the Madras Sanskrit Association for his proficiency in Sanskrit. </li></ul><ul><li>Completed seven masters degrees , including Philosophy, English, Mathematics, History and Science, with the American College of Sciences. </li></ul>Tirthaji
Squaring numbers <ul><li>Squaring of Nine </li></ul><ul><li>The nearest power of 10 to 9 is 10. Therefore, let us take 10 as our base. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Since 9 is 1 less than 10, decrease it by the deficiency ( 9 - 1 = 8). This is the leftmost digit of our answer. </li></ul><ul><li>3. On the right hand side put the square of the deficiency, which is 1². Hence, the square of nine is 81. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Kalpasutras gave directions for conducting sacrificial fires at different times of the year. </li></ul><ul><li>- To calculate the planetary positions with Vedic mathematics. </li></ul><ul><li>To construct calendars/panchangas for lunar as well solar months. </li></ul>Application of Vedic mathematics
