E-gurukul announces Vedic Maths Teachers Training results
Free Online Vedic Mathematics Teachers Training Certification Programme was an important milestone in our endeavour, team at e-gurukul.net is quite elated for establishing 30 enthusiastic Vedic maths trainers in 27 cities/11 countries/4 Continents.
Vedic Mathematics is the name given to the ancient system of Indian Mathematics which was rediscovered from the Vedas between 1911 and 1918 by Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji (1884-1960). According to his research all of mathematics is based on sixteen Sutras, or word-formulae. These formulae describe the way the mind naturally works and are therefore a great help in directing the student to the appropriate method of solution.
The simplicity of Vedic Mathematics means that calculations can be carried out mentally (though the methods can also be written down). There are many advantages in using a flexible, mental system. Interest in the Vedic system is growing in education where mathematics teachers are looking for something better and finding the Vedic system is the answer. Research is being carried out in many areas including the effects of learning Vedic Maths on children; developing new, powerful but easy applications of the Vedic Sutras in geometry, calculus, computing etc.
As a part of Global Educational Programmes in ancient sciences series, E-Gurukul had decided to promote an intensive live audio visual online teachers training certification programme open to qualified individuals. As a part of Global Educational Programmes Series, e-gurukul.net have announced launch of World-wide Online Educational Programme. “Vedic Ganita Kranti” - World Wide awareness Programme in science of Vedic Maths. The mission of this noble endeavour is to introduce science of Vedic maths to at least 10,000 people across the globe in the form of web based seminars, e-courses and by establishing quality & top notch Vedic Mathematics trainers across the globe who can teach Science of Vedic Maths among Youth and children thru online teachers training programmes.
After successfully organizing series of webinars and teachers training programme in Vedic Maths, Vedic Ganita Kranti team had teamed up with World famous Vedic Mathematician Mr Kenneth Williams from Vedic Maths Academy, UK.
He had designed this audio visual course curriculum, took the students through different Sutras and examples in the form of 36 Video lessons covering numerous topics like early history of VM, various techniques, Sanskrit and Pi and many more topics. The entire 11 weeks online training with over 2000 online Forum discussions on Vedic Mathematics was well received by the students and they had thoroughly enjoyed the training. Upon completion of this online training, each student underwent a strict certification process. The certification process consisted of completing various video lessons, online tests, organizing an intro session on Vedic mathematics in their respective locations, project work submissions, Online Forum discussion participation and many more.
"Though I am very familiar with people's reaction of surprise and delight to Vedic Maths, I found the response of our course participants to be overwhelming. Their enthusiasm and penetrating questions and ideas were a huge benefit to us all, and there are now thirty more highly trained teachers of Vedic Mathematics from 27 cities across the globe eager to pass on their newly acquired skills and understanding. The E-gurukul set-up seems to be the ideal way to disseminate this beautiful knowledge to large numbers of people across the globe, and the formula we devised of video lessons, online discussion forum, Live Q & A sessions, assignments and tests seems to have worked so well - I could hardly have imagined a more positive or more successful outcome" said Kenneth Williams.
