Provide your students with a FREE WORKSHOP in Vedic Mathematics in fall 2010.
What is Vedic Mathematics?
Vedic Mathematics is pure mathematics as it was practiced in ancient India. Thousands of years ago, Indian mathematicians used simple formulas that allowed one to perform seemingly difficult calculations – such as the addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, squaring, and square root calculation of large numbers – mentally, with great speed and ease. These formulas were recorded as sutras (verses) in the Atharva Veda, one of the world’s most ancient scriptural texts, and were rediscovered in 1911 by Sri Bharati Krishna Teerthaji, an extraordinary scholar who reintroduced this knowledge in the modern world.
Why learn Vedic Mathematics?
• The Vedic Mathematic system is coherent, direct and easy to understand, making math satisfying and enjoyable.
• Students can do calculations 10-15 times faster than using conventional methods, with great accuracy.
• Improves mental agility, memory, mathematical intelligence and academic results.
• Break free from dependence on calculators! Doing big calculations mentally with ease increases student confidence and eliminates math phobia.
• It is a flexible mental system in which encourages students to think intuitively in math.
• Useful in many branches of mathematics like Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, etc.
• Will help students not only in school but also in general life.

Facilitator:
Mr. S. Haridas received a degree in mathematics from S.N. College, Kollam, India, and was trained as a teacher at Sri Ramakrishna Institute of Moral and Spiritual Education, Mysore, India. He taught mathematics for 28 years and is now retired. Well versed in Sanskrit, Mr. Haridas has now focussed his attention on studying and teaching Vedic Mathematics. He has authored two books on the subject (one English, one Malayalam), and has several given lectures in India, and at Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres in the U.S. and Canada. During a speed demonstration in a lecture at the Cochin University of Science And Technology, Kerala, Mr. Haridas calculated the 251st root of a 794 digit number in 1 minute and 40 seconds. He is an engaging speaker with the ability to bring this ancient Mathematical system to life.

Proposal: Prompted by Mr. S. Haridas desire to share these valuable techniques with young people, the Toronto Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre (registered charity) is organizing free workshops on Vedic Mathmatics with Mr. Haridas for students in Grade 8 and up.
