Vedic Maths in Punjab Schools

Posted on 20 January, 2016 No comments
For once our education system has taken a concrete and correct decision in Punjab to implement Vedic Mathematics in the school curriculum. Period!

What better way to implement the Vedic System than to test the students on it. This Vedic Maths test caught both teachers and students unawares,on the concepts on basic multiplication, addition and subtraction by Vedic Maths methods.

Check this article out on the topic published today 20th January 2016 by the Hindustan Times. A test that caught students, teachers unawares

Education Minister Punjab Dr Daljit Singh Cheema
Teachers knew that students did not know how to solve these simple questions with Vedic math methods as they had not taught them the technique after they were given training in Vedic math from October to December last year. The 50 marks test was compulsory for all the students.

As lakhs of students of government middle and higher secondary schools took the test for Vedic mathematics for the first time in the state, Education Minister Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said Vedic mathematics should not be seen as an agenda of Hindu organizations, adding that it would rather help students to quickly solve simple mathematics problems.It will help our students whose reliance on calculator and computer is growing day by day even for simple calculations.
 
The education department has directed heads of all middle and high schools to conduct a test of Vedic mathematics exercises from Classes VI up to X.

Shri Dina Nathji Batra welcomes move

RSS-associated academician Shri Dina Nath Batra, a proponent of Vedic maths, welcomed the government's decision to adopt Vedic maths. "Formulae of Vedic maths make calculations easier. Today, institutions imparting training for various competitive exams use these formulations by using modern terminology for them," he said.

Tests on Vedic Maths in Punjab schools

Posted on 18 January, 2016 No comments
The Director-General of School Education (DGSE), Pradeep Aggarwal has issued an order, which asks Punjab government school students from classes 6 to 10 to sit for a 50-mark Vedic Mathematics test on January 19.The test results will have to be sent to the DGSE office by 4 pm on the same day. Consequently, District Education Officers (DEOs) would prepare a list of schools, which didn't conduct the test and send the same to the DGSE office.

The motive of the test is to assess how well students understood Vedic maths, for a better curriculum plan in future. The school curriculum doesn't include Vedic maths as yet.
