This 9-week certificated course (36 lessons) is for those who have some teaching experience (it does not have to be in Mathematics) and who wish to teach the Vedic system.
The Course is conducted entirely online with weekly Tests, Discussions, and Assignments.
No prior knowledge of Vedic Mathematics is required. There is also a lively discussion forum where ideas and comments are exchanged.
Please note the course is not designed to be easy: of those who enroll some do not stay to finish the course and some do not reach the required level to pass. If you are not serious about becoming a certified Vedic Maths teacher, please do not apply for this course.
Course created and conducted by Kenneth Williams.
Facilitators: Virgilio Y. Prudente and Veronica S. Prudente
Though the course does not aim to teach teaching, it includes advice on teaching, and two teaching projects are part of the course.
The main aim is to present Mathematics as a structured, but easy and unified subject. That is to say: the mathematical content is Vedic Maths.
We start at the beginning with basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Various simple and natural devices are introduced that make calculations very easy.
We concentrate on mental maths as well as written work, and various checking devices are used.
In addition to the basic general methods we have special methods in the Vedic system, which enable very tough problems to be solved with ease. This gives confidence as well as creating a sense of fun in maths work.
In addition to the basic operations we cover: Fractions, Divisibility, Algebra, Solving equations, Squaring, square roots, Transformations, Coordinate geometry, Quadratic equations, Recurring decimals, The Vedic Numerical Code, Etc.
Various historical aspects are also included in the course.
