Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Dear Parent, A study done by the University of California indicates that children with math problems in elementary school are 13% less likely to graduate from high school and 29% less likely to attend college. It also states that early math skills are the single most consistent predictive of later academic success.After reading this study I went out to do my own research and I interviewed a number of successful entrepreneurs, managers and business people about their early math skills and its relation to their obvious success in life.
All but one said they always had a good sense for numbers and math: some had this automatically others were taught by a great teacher or parents. Now, most of them were not great students from Kindergarden to 5th grade, some even had behavioral problems that sent them to the school psychologist. Most of them did not even enjoy going to school until a later age. Then I spoke to the headmaster of the school district for middle and high schools in my area.
He is not the kind that sits in his office but continually has been teaching students: “Students that are good in math tend to be good in all subjects, but students that are good in languages are not necessarily good in other subjects.” Hearing this from an experienced educator with 20-some years of experience really blew my mind! Now, does this spell doom over your child if it does not have solid math skills yet? Absolutely not! In those studies it makes no difference if a child is a natural or taught in math.
We can teach your child those skills in an easy and fun way.“Jana, 4th grader“I went from a failing grade to a B after just a few hours with Gwen. A few years ago, when my son was in 3rd grade, he had to practice one row from the times tables every weekend for homework. The 2’s and 5’s were fine but the others often caused frustration and tears. I spent a lot of money on a variety of products of which none kept what it promised and books that my son hated to fill! I felt cheated and let down by the system.
I myself have never been great at math and always felt I am missing the “Indian-Math-Gene” (being of Indian decent). Until I came across the ancient Indian system of vedic math. Within 3 days of practicing 15 minutes each day my son knew his times tables without having to memorize them, and even I knew them better than I ever did before just by practicing with him those few minutes. Within a short time I was teaching more kids and within a few
Within a short time I was teaching more kids and within a few months I was asked to write a book published by a famous Swiss memory trainer. 1.5 years later the book was published and was an instant success. During this time I worked with a lot of children with a diverse range of problems: I had a 3rd grader coming from the other side of the country during her school holidays, barely knowing her times tables and really low grades in school: within 3 days she calculated √1735 to the 5th decimal and had tremendous fun daring adults to beat her with her mental math feats.
I also was able to work with seriously learning-challenged children who at age 13 were learning how to add and subtract in the range 10 and 20. Within hours of learning how to use their fingers in the same way Japanese children use the Soroban Abacus, they immediately showed progress that enabled them to add and subtract up to 100. Which in turn made them able to learn the vedic way to multiply and learn their times tables.“early math skills are the single most consistent predictive of later academic success” In the past years I was transformed from a person that never calculated anything mentally and who never went to grad school out of fear of the math part of the GMAT to being able to solve some basic calculus with pen and paper.
I wish I could find my math teacher from high school and tell her! But I never will forget how it feels not being able to grasp those math concepts. If I can learn it, anybody can! All it takes are the right strategies and tools which vedic math provides. Some months ago I did a teachers certification in vedic math and it dawned onto me, that those people that are naturally good at math know those ways subconsciously, whereas others simply have to be taught and then are equally good.

Vedic math is a system: it is flexible and works more naturally with the way our brain flows. You can calculate from left-to-right or right-to-left and you can choose from a number of different ways of how to solve the same problem. Numbers will start to make sense and stop being an abstract thing. It won’t even interfere with the way your child learns math in school as we are teaching how to solve the same problems mentally, often with the help of a picture that is easy to remember.
However, I would like to warn you this math system might even impact you as a parent. A mom who participated in the course her children took with me, told me a few months ago: “I’ve been working for 10 years in the same company in the same job. Now after doing your math course and working around the problems to make it easier, I did the same in my job. I realized that another way of handling my work saves the company a lot of money.
