#### For Year 3 to Year 8

### The Power of Vedic Mathematics

**Introduction: Vedic Mathematics:** “Veda” means “knowledge”

Vedic Mathematics is an ancient system of mathematics originating in India. The system consists of a series of formulas (Sutras) that describe the way **the mind naturally works**. Vedic Maths is, therefore, **a powerful system** that directs students to solutions for various math problems.

Through the Vedic System, students are not limited to the one method. Instead, students are equipped with a variety of different methods which allow them to increase accuracy. Pupils can even invent their own methods, and in this way, mathematics becomes a **creative and intuitive process**.

On top of this, difficult problems consisting of large sums are often solved **immediately **under the Vedic System. What’s more, calculations are mostly **mental! **The brain is the calculator.

Our Rocket Maths® course guides our pupils into the power of the Vedic System. By the end of the course, students are equipped with knowledge that applies to every branch of mathematics and will help them greatly in higher studies. |

### Highlights of the Rocket Maths® Course

## Arithmetics, Squares and Square Roots

#### Rocket Maths 1.1

- In Rocket Maths 1.1 (RM1.1) students will
**master**addition, subtraction, multiplication and division – the core foundation of mathematics. Students will learn how to solve complex calculations**mentally**and with**speed**through a variety of techniques. - We’ll also introduce the concept of squaring and square roots through the unique and exclusive concept of the
**duplex**. - The aim of RM1.1 is to provide a comfortable yet engaging introduction to the Vedic system, a step towards developing a more creative, intuitive and fun attitude towards maths!

## Algebra, Fractions and Probability

#### Rocket Maths 1.2

- In Rocket Maths 1.2 (RM1.2), skills are developed further through more elaborate multiplication and division techniques which relate more to high school curricula
- Students are also introduced to
**algebra**, learning how to construct algebraic equations from word problems and to solve various linear algebraic equations like algebraic fraction and division. - This level will also develop and strengthen students’ knowledge of fractions and probability through various strategies unique to Vedic Maths.
