3. 1. Background
Vedic Mathematics is the name given to a supposedly ancient system of calculation
which was "rediscovered" from the Vedas between 1911 and 1918 by Sri Bharati Krishna Tirthaji
Maharaj (1884-1960). According to Tirthaji, all of Vedic mathematics is based on sixteen sutras, or word-
formulae. For example, "Vertically and crosswise" is one of these Sutras. These formulae are intended to
describe the way the mind naturally works, and are therefore supposed to be a great help in directing the
student to the appropriate method of solution. None of these sutras has ever been found in Vedic
literature, nor are its methods consistent with known mathematical knowledge from the Vedic era.
The simplicity of the Tirthaji system means that calculations can be carried out mentally,
though the methods can also be written down. There are many advantages in using a flexible, mental
system. Pupils can invent their own methods; they are not limited to one method. This leads to more
creative, interested and intelligent pupils.
Interest in the Tirthaji's system is growing in education, where mathematics teachers are
looking for something better and finding the Vedic system is the answer. Research is being carried out in
many areas including the effects learning the Tirthaji system has on children; developing new, powerful
but easy applications of these Sutras in arithmetic and algebra.
The real beauty and effectiveness of the Tirthaji system cannot be fully appreciated
without practicing the system. One can then see why its enthusiasts claim that it is the most refined and
efficient calculating system known.
"Vedic Mathematics" refers to a technique of calculation based on a set of 16 Sutras, or
aphorisms, as algorithms and their upa-sutras or corollaries derived from these Sutras. Its enthusiasts
advance the claim that any mathematical problem can be solved mentally with these sutras.
In April 2019, HIMCOSTE Shimla planned to organize a 5 days state level workshop on Vedic
Mathematics for teachers and students of the state with the objective to popularize mathematics by
adopting innovative methodology in teaching learning process among the teachers and students. The
Teacher Training Incharge of DIET Mandi, faculties of mathematics and BRC’s were also involved in the
workshop with the objective to strengthen the mathematics training through DIET.
The workshop on Vedic mathematics was organized to create interest to study the
mathematics among students. Vedic Mathematics has Techniques/Sutras to solve mathematical arithmetic
in easy and faster way. It consists of 16 Sutras (Formulae) and 13 sub-sutras (Sub Formulae) which can
be used for problems involved in arithmetic, algebra, geometry, calculus, conics.
Using regular mathematical steps, solving problems sometimes are complex and time
consuming. But using Vedic Mathematic’s General Techniques, Specific Techniques and numerical
calculations can be done very fast.

of the IIT Labs.
Students visiting IIT Labs
During the visit of Laboratories of IIT Mandi the students get the insight of advanced instruments - their
importance and functioning.
The resource persons made four groups of teachers and give them some Vedic mathematics problems to
solve with some innovative models brought out along with them.
All groups were given TLMs to discuss in the group for 15 minutes and to represent it with CAMAL
(Combined Activities for Maximizing Learning). Group wise presentations were made by each groups
and group 2 gave its presentation on the TLM which included different Colored and Shaped Magnetic
Presentation made by resource persons was interactive and informative as all the topics were covered with
the help of these innovative experiments and which were creative and easy to learn mathematics for the

Day-2
Second day of workshop on Vedic Maths started at 9:45 a.m. with welcome of Dr. Chandramouli Joshi, Chairman,
All India Ramanujan Society, Gujarat and Mr. Dhanraj Thakkar, Secretary, All India Ramanujan Society, Gujarat.
Participant Girls form the adjacent schools recited Gayatri Mantra, which creates devotion and peaceful atmosphere.
After that Dr. Joshi started with PPT, which he gave the brief introduction and achievements of All India
Ramanujan Maths Club, Gujarat. Dr. Joshi interacted with teachers and students gave them a warm
welcome and regards. He started with “How to make Mathematics easy”, “Remove Maths’s phobia”,
“Make Mathematics interesting & bring more marks in Mathematics”.
Mr. Joshi said that Puri’s Shankaracharya “Sh. Krishna Bharti” had tried to make Maths easy by Vedic
Maths. In 1971, Krishna Swami had given 16 formulas on Vedic Maths which have been approved by
“Worlds Parliament”. Some of the examples Dr. Joshi explained are as follows:
1. Ekadhikena Purvena – One more than the Previous
This method is used to Square of Numbers which ends with 5.
Square of Such Numbers = Number before 5 x next number (Left Side) / 52 (Right Side )
For example 252
The number before 5 is 2, and the number next to 2 is 3, therefore
252 = 2 x 3 / 25
= 625
The number before 5 is 6, and the number next to 6 is 7, therefore
652 = 6 x 7 / 25
= 4225
2. Nikhilam Navatascharam Dastah – All from 9 and last from 10.
This method is used for multiplication of numbers with the Base 10, 100, 1000, 10000 ………….. etc.
The number of digits in right side is equal to the number of zeros in the Base.
For Example: 98 X 92. The nearest base is 100 having 2 zeros.
98 is 2 less and 92 is 8 less to the base 100. Add/Subtract crossly
98-8 =92-2 =90, this becomes the left side of answer.
Multiply the deviations to the base 2X8 = 16, this having two digits- which are equal to number of zeros
in the base 100, becomes the right side of answer.
98↘ -2
X 92↗ -8 X ↕
90 / 16
Therefore 98 X 92 = 9016.
9
10. Another example can be taken of 9988 X 9989. The nearest base is 10000 having 4 zeros.
9988 is 12 less and 99892 are 11 less to the base 10000. Add/Subtract crossly
9988-11 =9989-12 =9977, this becomes the left side of answer.
Multiply the deviations to the base 12X11 = 132, this having three digits- which is one less to
number of zeros in the base 10000, so this will become the right side of answer by putting one
zero before this.
9988↘ -12
X 9989↗ -11 X ↕
9977 / 0132
Therefore 9988 X 9989 = 99770132.
Another example can be taken of 1018 X 1013. Here both numbers are higher than the base. The
nearest base is 1000 having 3 zeros.
1018 is 18 more and 1013 is 13more to the base 1000. Add/Subtract crossly
1018+13 =1013 +18 = 1031, this becomes the left side of answer.
Multiply the deviations to the base 18X13 = 234, this having three digits- which are equal to
number of zeros in the base 1000, so this becomes the right side of answer.
1018↘ +18
X 1013↗ +13 X ↕
1031 / 234
Therefore 1018 X 1013 = 1031234.
Let’s finish with one example where one number is more and the other less to the base.
10183 X 9995
The nearest base is 10000 having 4 zeros.
10183 is 183 more and 9995 is 5 less to the base 10000. Add/Subtract crossly
10183-5 =9995 +183 = 10178, this becomes the left side of answer by subtracting 1.
Multiply the deviations to the base 183X5 = 915, so this becomes the right side of answer after
subtracting from the Base 10000.
10183↘ +183
X 9995↗ -5 X ↕
10178-1 / Base – 915
10177 / 10000-915
10177 / 9085
Therefore 10183 X 9995 = 101779085.

11. 3. Urdhva Tiryagbhyam - Vertically and Crosswise
The above multiplications of two numbers can be easily done by Vertical and Cross Multiplication.
For example 98 X 92 : It can be done by multiplying vertically the Tens and Units places and cross
multiplication of tens and Units : (1) Tens: 9X9 = 81
(2) Tens & Units Cross Multiplication and Addition: 9X2+9X8 = 18+72 =90
(3) Units: 8X2 =16
9 8 Tens / Tens & Units / Units
81 / 90 / 16
X 9 2 81 /90+ 1 /6
9016 81 /91 /6
This method can be extended to multiplication
of three or more digit numbers also.
81+9 /1 /6
9016
4. Paravartya Yojayet -- Transpose and Apply
5. Sunyam Samyasamuccaye - The summation is equal to zero
6. Anurupye Sunyamanyat - If one is in ratio, other one is zero
7. Sankalana Vyavakalanbhyam – By completion and non completion
It can be applied in solving a special type of simultaneous equations where the x - coefficients and the
y - coefficients are found interchanged.
Example 1:
45x ( 45x –– 23y ) + ( 23x –23y
45y ) = 113 + 91 = 113
23x – 45y = 91
68x – 68y = 204 , x–y=3
X= 2 , y = -1
 Subtract one from other
Example 2 :
( 45x – 23y ) – ( 23x – 45y ) = 113 – 91
1955x – 476y = 2482
476x – 1955y = - 4913 22x + 22y = 22 , x+y=1
Solving on same lines we get  Repeat the same sutra again i.e. Add &
Subtract the new equations.
X= 2 , y = 3.
we get x = 2 and y = - 1
8. Calana – Kalanabhyam – Sequential motion
9. Puranapuranabhyam -By completion and non- completion
This sutra means whatever the extent of its deficiency, lessen it still further to that very extent; and
also set up the square of that deficiency. The sutra is very handy in calculating squares of numbers
near (lesser) to powers of 10.
Let’s take the example of 982 :
982 = 98-2 / 22 -The nearest power of 10 to 98 is 100. Therefore, let us take 100 as our base.
-Since 98 is 2 less than 100, we call 2 as the deficiency.
= 96 / 04
- Decrease the given number further by an amount equal to the deficiency.
= 9604. i.e., perform ( 98 -2 ) = 96. This is the left side of our answer .
- On the right hand side put the square of the deficiency, that is 04.
- Append the results from step 4 and 5 to get the result. Number of digits in
right side of answer should be the same as in the Base. Hence the answer is 11
9604.
12. Let’s take another example of 1032 :
--The nearest power of 10 to 103 is 100. Therefore, let us take 100 as our
base.
1032 = 103+3 / 32
- Since 103 is 3 more than 100, we call 3 as the surplus.
= 106 / 09
- Increase the given number further by an amount equal to the surplus. i.e.,
= 10609. perform ( 103+3 ) = 106. This is the left side of our answer .
& ……….. - On the right hand side put the square of the surplus, that is = 09.
1009 2= 1018081. - Append the results from step 4 and 5 to get the result. Number of digits in
right side of answer should be the same as in the Base. Hence the answer is
10609.
11. Vyastisamastih -Whole as one and one as whole
12. Sesanyankena Caramena– Remainder by last digit
13. Sopantyadvayamantyam - Ultimate and twice the penultimate
14. Ekanyunena Purvena -- By one less than the previous one
15. Gunitasamuccayah - The whole product is same.
16. Gunakasamuccayah - Collectivity of multipliers.
12
13. Students were given many questions to solve and they learnt about the easy way of doing multiplication
and other mathematical operations.
13
14. These formulas are very useful to make Maths easy. With the help of these formulas, toughest calculation
is very easy to do even by weaker students.
After that Dr. Joshi gave simple Maths problems for students and teachers separately. All of us solved
them with interest. Prize and appreciation was given to “quick solver”. Further he taught how to solve
various Maths problems without using formula. He gave lots of interesting examples.
He also taught us “Ekadhindeno Pubeno” and “Param Mitra” trick, how to multiply by 999, 99999,… by
11, find square of numbers, touch and answer and many more. After that students’ and teachers’ were
taken separately. Students lecture was taken by Mr. Mehul and Dr. Joshi continued with us.
Dr. Joshi taught us “Base Method” for quick multiplication, it included Base-10, Base-20, Base-30, Base-
100, Base-200, Base-300, Base-400 etc. All of us learnt it with great enthusiasm.
After lunch, Dr. Joshi entertained the participants with different kind of interesting “Puzzles”. He gave
some gadgets to the participants to solve. The fellow teachers who solved them were given prize and
He distributed two mathematics kits among all the pariticipants. These kits were sponsored by
HIMCOSTE. The participants used those kits at the venue and found them very useful for classroom
After tea break, Dr. Joshi told about National Level Mathematics Fair. He also gave detailed information
about Best Teacher Award and IYMC, i.e. International Young Mathematician Competition. He
motivated teachers to participate in such kind of competition along with their students.
After that, Sh. Mehul Kumar was on the dais. He continued with his PPT. He taught different kind of
tricks to make Maths interesting for students.
Workshop ended up at 6:00 p.m. with the discussion on factors of zero.

23. Feedback is the process in which part of the output of a system is returned to its input in order to regulate
its further output, and should be an essential part of education, training and personal development.
Without proper feedback a vacuum is created which may result in poor grades, lack of interest and loss of
strategy and direction. So the feedback of participants has been taken during the workshop on the basis of
which graphical analysis has been made. Feedback forms are attached at Annexure B.
