As commented by A. Mahadevan your website is very resourceful & interesting. It is good to learn all this, but I am indeed surprised because you never wrote back to me that your site is already working. Please let me know the name, so that I could visit the same.
I'd been discussing with Kenneth Williams about preparing a coursebook for females like Vedic Maths for Young Mothers / Ladies because my own experience from workshops shows keen interest in them more than males. One of the reasons of this is because most of the teaching staff in schools in India are females & the male staff is dwindling every year. More than that the literacy rate among females in the country is has been much more looking to the results in schools & colleges in India.
If I am not mistaken at least 2 females have approached me saying they would like to publish or print a course material they have prepared, but I am not sure what kind of teaching experience they have, one in Delhi & another one in Mumbai. Most people in India, who have been fascinated by the Magic of VM by only acquiring only partial wisdom of VM, think they are capable of doing wonders, but this is all wrong. Until or unless one learns & acquires genuine teaching experience by actually teaching VM in schools it is very difficult & problematic to claim that anyone is a very good teacher.
All this is unforunately not possible in India because of lack of teaching experience for the simple reason that VM is not a part of school curriculum. Precisely this is why the new VM book, published by Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Vedic Mathematics, Part 1 by S. Haridas, is not a very well written book although Kenneth Williams has complimented the book in his VM newsletter # 19 page # 3, perhaps, because his soft corner towards Indian scholars working for VM. Dr P K Srinivasan (Mathematician) & Director of Ramanujan Museum & Math Education Centre in Chennai reviewed the above book of S. Haridas critically in The Hindu & pointed out lot of printing errors in his book which reduced its quality.
When I forwarded copy of the review to Haridas he had none other option, but to agree to what Srinivasan said in his review. Dr Srinivasan had earlier reviewed James Glover's book we publish, but in spite of the errors he pointed out in Glover's book he wrote Glover's efforts in preparing the book are extremely commendable. I have copies of both reviews.
Nevertheless, the purpose of saying all this is always to stress & focus on quality whenever such an effort is done for preparing for above course.
Warmest personal regards

I have pasted below the link to all of our vedic mathematics books. Where to begin depends upon what you want to learn and where you are at. Discover Vedic mathematics is one of the best introductory books. Tirthaji's work Vedic Mathematics is excellent but more difficult for beginners. The Cosmic Computer or Calculator is an entire course through standard mathematics for children or adults. And the other books are more topic orientated.

Can you suggest books to teach Vedic Math to elementary and intermediate level kids?
I am looking for both teaching aids and workbooks if any.
The ones I have come across are:
1."TEACHER’S MANUALS –
ELEMENTARY & INTERMEDIATE
Author: Kenneth Williams, 2002.
Published by Inspiration Books."
2. "Vedic Math Teachers Manual, Volume3, Advanced.Kenneth Williams" I dont know if this one caters to the elementary/intermediate levels.
Thanks in advance.

Hi, I am from the UK but have been living in Chennai for 3 years, working for an international mathematics education company.
I am interested in the Mathematics of the Vedic period - especially trigonometry, calculus, geometry. Less so algebra, number theory.
Also the difference between 'Vedic Maths' and Maths that was achieved during the historical period - are they the same?
Can someone direct me to where such books are available - I have seen many books about Vedic maths in school, but none on the above topics (as far as I know from a brief look). I saw one in the Bangalore science museum book shop but it was brief and indicated no proofs - I hold a Maths Masters degree from a UK university so want to see some more detail.
Thanks in advance,

I am a developer as well as an engineer.
I have developed one Mathematical Notepad for the students. Any student can make good practice through this computer program. Cost $10 only.
Our team is working on vedic maths by multmedia to develops few educational CBTs to get more interest for the students.
Is it possible you to post this message please to all users.
