Vedic Mathematics for Schools, Book 2 is intended as a first year textbook for senior schools or for children aiming for examination at 11+. It is based on the fundamental principles of Vedic mathematics which were reconstructed earlier this century by Sri Sankaracarya Bharati Krsna Tirthaji. Although the sutras may well be very ancient, practice and experience have shown that they are highly relevant and useful to the modern-day teaching of mathematics. They are entirely applicable to modern problems and even to modern approaches to mathematics. Topics covered include the four rules of number, fractions and decimals, simplifying and solving in algebra, perimeters and areas, ratio and proportion, percentages, averages, graphs, angles and basic geometrical constructions. The book contains step-by-step worked examples with explanatory notes together with over two hundred practice exercises. The material in this book is currently used at schools around the world assocaited with the Education Renaissance Trust.



Review 1: Book II, consisting of 24 chapters, eight per school term, extends the list to nine more "Sutras" to serve the needs of first year students of senior school leading to 11-plus examination. Vedic Mathematics throws open a welcome opportunity for mathelets or whizkids to hone their skills and win laurels through display of mental feat in giving one-line quick responses to mathematical calculations and manipulations.

Review 2: J.T. Glover rightly states, mathematics has two directions an outer and an inner. The outer direction is fulfilled by applying the mathematical formulae. The inner direction is the investigation of the real nature of the working phenomena from the origin of man or universe up to the ultimate reality. There are many more interesting and intelligent short-cuts in multiplication, division and so on. This book also demonstrates how 'Vedic Mathematics belongs not only to an hoary antiquity but also is... as modern as the day after tomorrow'.

Review 3: Well-written, this book supplements Bharati Krishna Tirtha's 'Vedic Mathematics' published by the same publisher... As against attempts by earlier writers, the presentation, the illustrations and the exercises are all executed very well.
