Have you wondered… Why do competitive exams have mathematical questions? Why are Professionals expected to have fair grip on numbers even though we are living in the age of calculators and computers? Why do many people find Math very hard?
The AnswersWe have the answers for all your questions.
Why do competitive exams have math questions? Mathematical Intelligence is one of the eight types of intelligence a person possesses. If a person is able to perform mathematical calculations fast, it proves that he is quick and can think logically and analytically. Mathematical intelligence is required for lateral thinking.
Why do people find Math hard? In schools, we are Taught math. But we are not taught to Think! As a result, we end up following a conventional (monotonous) way of doing any calculation. Due to the increase in use of calculators, people end up using them even for simple calculations. Their brains stop Thinking and start working Mechanically.
Why do we need to be good with numbers? Imagine a situation where the HR personnel is negotiating salary with a potential candidate where the sales or purchase dept are negotiating and are on the verge of a striking a deal a Corporate Finance meeting Can they keep tapping their fingers on calculators in the above situations? Will it not affect their efficiency if they are not good with numbers?
What is Our technique? We make people Think! The emphasis is on Learning and Discovering, rather than Teaching. The element of fun plays a vital role in the process of learning. The aim is not just to do calculations faster, but also to create Productive Thinkers for the society.
Our Workshops Vedic Mathematics SMART Math – Self-Motivation And Right Thinking in Math ICC – Improving Conceptual Clarity Problem-Solving
What is Vedic Mathematics? India has produced the most number of mathematicians that the world has ever seen. The source of Indian Mathematics can be traced back to the Vedas. Ancient Indian Mathematicians added their contributions to the existing knowledge and tried to make math simpler. Vedic Mathematics or Ancient Indian Mathematics is a sum total of all knowledge contributed by various mathematicians.
Why Vedic Math? Vedic math is so lucid that people of any calibre can learn with ease. Unlike usual math which has only ‘one way’ to do calculations, Vedic Math has ‘many ways’ to do the same calculation, which gives us multiple options. People start using these techniques in smarter ways and are able to do calculations faster than conventional methods. Thus, whenever the students face any problem, they start thinking in different ways to get the solution faster.
More Reasons for Vedic Math Improves pattern-observation. Makes the brain sharp. Very useful for competitive exams. Eradicates fear and replaces with love for math. Facilitates a habit of analytical thinking and approach.

Our Workshops - ICC ICC – a workshop on Improving Conceptual Clarity Why is this workshop required? First challenge faced by a student – Lack of Conceptual Clarity. Unclear concepts since school days makes one weak in math and creates a fear for the subject. Most of them are unable to identify this fact and label themselves as weak in math. Many mug up the formulae and begin an exam-oriented study rather than a knowledge-oriented one. By the time, one gets to higher classes, there is great possibility that he has forgotten the lessons learnt in school.
Our Workshops - ICC ICC – a workshop on Improving Conceptual Clarity Our process We take them back to the basics and provide enough conceptual clarity on topics like fractions, percentages, ratios, proportions, area, volume, identities, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, etc. The students are taught the correlation between topics like algebra & geometry; geometry & trigonometry, etc; and they area also explained the history behind the origin of every branch in mathematics. Once the student understands the basic concepts, he then starts thinking on his own and solving a problem becomes easier for him.
Our Workshops – Problem-Solving Problem-Solving – the art of solving a problem Problem-Solving is an art that has to be cultivated in a person. Problem-Solving is breaking the problem into smaller parts and pictures for better and easier understanding. Majority of the students who are unable to clear competitive exams are weak in problem-solving.
How do we conduct our classes? Residential camps Non-Residential camps Courses Workshops Awareness programmes
Where do we conduct our classes? Anywhere in India! Till now, we have conducted sessions mainly for Educational Institutions, NGOs, Orientation Sessions for Teachers, Management students, National & InternationalYouth camps, Spiritual Retreats, Empowerment Programmes, etc. Through our programmes, in the last 2 years, we could touch more than 6000 people Mumbai, Cochin, Chennai, Ludhiana, Patiala, Tirunelveli, and almost in every district in Kerala.
