## Mathematics Tricks Using the Vedic SystemThe author's first book 'Speed Mathematics Using the Vedic System' has gained a significant following. This sequel 'Mathematics Tricks using the Vedic System' has more tricks that will prove useful for middle, high School(grades 10 & 11) and college students. For high school students the following topics in Speed Mathematics will prove useful: Factorising/factoring, indices/exponents, simultaneous equations, quadratic equations and trigonometry. The same set of students will find duplex methods of squaring 2 & 3-digit numbers, expanding algebraic expressions, finding square roots, cube roots and solving problems involving repetitive percentage change also useful. In addition some topics in statistics are included. Several mnemonics are also included to help the younger student remember pi, basic trig as well as understand the differences between mean, median, mode and range. Hopefully, teachers will see the value of these techniques in order to motivate their studen |
