Teacher Training Courses

**Description**: These two certificated courses are for those who have some teaching
experience (it does not have to be in mathematics) and who wish to
teach the Vedic system.

You can enrol for either:

**Basic + Intermediate OR ****Basic + Intermediate + Advanced 1 **

- see the details of these 3 courses below.

The video lessons can be watched at any convenient
time during the week and are available for the duration of the course..

The Course is conducted entirely online with Tests, Discussion
Meetings, Assignments and optional 'Challenge Questions'.

Prior knowledge of Vedic Mathematics is not required.

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 do not apply for this course.

We have a pass mark of 70% and those achieving 90% or
more earn a distinction.

The Advanced 2 and Advanced 3 courses follow on from the Advanced 1 course described below.

**Course Content for the Teacher Training Courses
**

Though the course does not aim to teach teaching, it includes advice on teaching, and 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.
