Vedic Mathematics is highly fast, simple & effective tool for carrying out basic arithmetics like subtraction, multiplication, division, squaring, cubing, finding square roots & cube roots, etc. Vedic Mathematics techniques can be divided in 2 basic techniques – General and Specific techniques. General method can be applied to any set of numbers whereas Specific method can be applied to specific numbers depending on their face value or position of each number. So it is very important to know both general and specific techniques to use Vedic Mathematics effectively.

The name ‘Vedic Mathematics’ will make someone to assume that this branch of mathematics have some relations with Vedas but many Indian scholars have proved that it has no roots from Vedas and since then the name ‘Vedic Mathematics’ have been contradictory. But the techniques used in it are genuinely effective when it comes to doing Math mentally or on paper in lesser steps. But even after knowing the power of techniques, Vedic Mathematics, sadly and surprisingly, is hardly taught in schools and colleges. … [Read more...]

## History Of Mathematics

Mathematics is one of the most crucial subject in today's technological world. Mathematics is used in various fields like Astronomy, Biotechnology, Medicine, Computer Science, Construction, Economics, Statistical Records and many more. Whether it comes to playing games on computer with/without Graphics or human's necessity Computers or Satellites in space keeping watch over earth and other planets or studying microorganisms and genes under Microscope or predicting earthquakes, floods, etc and many more involves Mathematics. [slideshow gallery_id="2" showthumbs=true thumbsposition=top thumbsborder=#00ffCC] Mathematics is not a subject which was created in 1000 or 2000 years, It has been present from many years and had contributions from various continents, countries and cities. As recorded mathematics is definitely present from last 6000 years. In this years various Mathematical topics & branches have been invented and discovered which makes it to have so many applications in real life. Well, this post is not about Mathematics and its Usage but its about History Of Mathematics and about earliest Mathematicians who did set a solid, accurate and simple platform for future people like us to explore and invent more with the help of Mathematics. … [Read more...]
