The Crowning Gem -
Powers, Roots, Equations Course
Description: This online course shows one beautiful Vedic Master-Formula (Vertically and Crosswise pattern) to find general powers and roots of numbers (and polynomial expressions) and solution of quadratic, cubic and higher order equations.
Course participants need only have a basic knowledge of algebra. There are no other prerequisites for joining the course, but knowledge of straight division and use of Duplexes to find squares and square roots is beneficial.
When Sri Bharati Krishna Tirthaji (1884-1960)
reconstructed the ancient system of Vedic Mathematics he left us with
one book on the subject, "Vedic Mathematics" (and a great many
questions). In his book he describes a division technique which he
called the "Crowning Gem" of Vedic Mathematics, the essential feature
being that the first digit of the divisor is used to provide all
subsequent digits when combined appropriately with the other digits
involved. This idea has been developed in this course.
