IF A CHILD CAN’T LEARN THE WAY WE TEACH , MAYBE WE SHOULD TEACH THE WAY THEY LEARN .-IGNACIO ESTRADA
THE BEST INVESTMENT YOU CAN MAKE IS IN UP SKILLING – THE MORE YOU LEARN – THE MORE YOU EARN.—- WARREN BUFFETT
Teachers need to up-skill their way of teaching:
In today’s era of 21st century why teachers need to up-skill their way of teaching? because of new way has been introduced and young generation is well versed with this new way of learning called- ONLINE LEARNING and FUN WAY OF LEARNING MATHS.
Well “Vedic” Maths – name itself suggest something related to maths from Vedas , but where was it for past so many years and suddenly came into limelight in past 3-5 years , actually what I have explored or surveyed , vedic maths was being used by coaching centres,
Institutes for entrance exam preparation of bank,cat,ias,etc after 12th class but they were only using 20-25% of vedic maths content what was easily available on either net or books easily available , and most importantly they were not using it by the name vedic maths but to promote themselves as experts in coaching field they never used vedic maths or sutras anywhere, that’s why vedic maths remain hidden till now.
Earlier vedic maths was being used for benefit 12th pass students, which were only 30% as compared to to the students who opt out of maths after 10th class,
Why use vedic maths ?
To solve problems and only as a teaching but as an activity or tool to remove the phobia of maths which is more important in today modern and confusing world
If we are able to create interest in students from 6th class onwards in maths and remove phobia in maths through any activities or tricks of maths it will be of more help
The difference between the students of 10th class one scoring 50% in maths and other scoring 90% is not that the earlier one doesn’t know the basic concepts of maths or is not hard working but majority of students tend to develop phobia of maths , which begins to develop during 6th class .
The reason for phobia in maths is not maths itself. But majorly due to other factors like – 99% people ask the result or numbers in maths from children to know there level , students are judged by the numbers in maths only inspite of 100% result in other subjects .
When a student scoring 50% in maths is taught vedic maths and I mean modern vedic maths(with simpler version ) not with Sanskrit sutras which can be more confusing for a student , the students tend to accept that maths can be easy and this helps in accepting the standard maths system also , its playing with the psychology of the child.
To conclude I will just say the vedic maths is TEACHIN AID it can be used to remove phobia of maths by playing with the psychology of children , NEW PEDAGOGY TO TEACH MATHS not merely with the mindset of teaching them tricks of vedic maths .
