About this course
This course is not a collection of tricks, but a unified approach to mathematics and mathematics education: if you want tricks please look elsewhere. Though the striking Vedic devices are covered in this and subsequent courses the aim is to show them as part of a greater coherent whole. So the course starts right at the beginning covering counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, checking devices, equations, fractions etc. Some history is included and the qualities of flexibility, creativity, simplicity and other advantages of the Vedic system are discussed.
