Posted on 25 November, 2014 No comments
In a bid to foster tele-education, Reliance Digital TV Tuesday announced its partnership with The Vedic Maths Forum of India to provide mathematics teaching on television, a company statement said here.

The new channel "The World of Vedic Maths" will be available on Channel # 559 on Reliance DTH at just Rs.112 on a pay-per-subscription basis for a period of five weeks, the statement added.

"We are happy to provide our subscribers with the best of mathematics education through our association with The Vedic Maths Forum of India. We are confident that this partnership will enable our viewers to be part of a meaningful and fun learning experience of mathematics," said Ashutosh Srivastava, business head, Reliance DTH.

Reliance Digital will offer 16 hours of content spread across the five weeks, covering 35 individual topics in mathematics.

"This programme will enable thousands of students to better their maths skills even in this age of calculators and computers. Instead of making kids love the math they hate, why can't we make math something they love to learn?" said Gaurav Tekriwal, founder president of The Vedic Maths Forum India.

If we tell you that an eight-year-old will figure this out in less than six seconds in his mind, you will think we are kidding, won't you? But with training in the best of global mental math techniques now available in many cities, it's possible for you — and your child — to do this, and more, before you can say Gaussian Elimination. No wonder then that many ambitious parents not content with regular school training are enrolling their children for supplementary training in mental math to improv ...

Teachers Training Workshop feedback from South Africa

A Teacher practices the Finger Multiplication in Cape Town
A Teachers Training Workshop was held in South Africa recently.

It was conducted by Mrs.Neshni Naidoo, Director, Vedic Maths Forum South Africa at the West Riding Primary School and it was attended by almost a score of Maths Teachers.

Some feedback from the sessions:
  • Thank you for allowing the educators to really be actively involved during the sessions – the educators were able to discuss along; explain and show their understanding and share ideas. 
  • Interesting methods that we can definitely implement: learning the 9x table using our fingers;
  •       The presenter was very helpful and willing to assist. 

    Feedback from Mr. Anthony Mitchell (Grade 7 Educator) 

    I found the Vedic sessions to be useful. I think their approach to Maths is very interesting, something I would like to pursue further. The presenter had a passion she wanted to share. 
    From a Grade 7 perspective, it would be very interesting and valuable to look at more examples specifically relevant to the grade/phase. This said, many of the topics she discussed had universal value.
    Personally, I find working with numbers fascinating and inspiring. I am always keen to learn more and get as many points of view as I can. 

Vedic Maths for a Better India

How Can Vedic Maths make a Better India?  What do you think?

I was invited to be part of the Better India initiative by TEDxGateway and powered by UTI Mutual Fund.

I definitely think that Vedic Maths can make a Better India!

If Vedic Maths is included in the curriculum  in India,the country will develop overall in academics.

Consider this...
75.2% of all children in Grade 5 in India can’t do Division (3 digits by 1-digit problems) – Source: ASER 2012 by Pratham.

73.7% of all children in Grade 3 in India can’t subtract (two digit problems with borrowing) – Source: ASER 2012 by Pratham.



The Audience at TEDxGateway, Mumbai
If such is the state of mathematics in our country, why cant we have Vedic Maths help solve the problem.?

Vedic Maths also helps in Entrepreneurship and Job  Creation apart from its significant contribution? in the field of Information Technology.

But that's me thinking! Lets hear what you have to say on this topic? Does Vedic Maths make a Better India?

Mail your entries to me at gtekriwal@vedicmathsindia.org  And the best one wins a copy of my book 'Speed Math'.
