Foundation mathematics for students of all ages & all learning styles
Director – Vedic Maths Academy (Great Britain)
The Vedic Mathematics Academy has had a long-standing association with Pebble Maths extending over decades. In the simplicity and beauty of the Pebble Maths system we see the same approach to mathematics as in the Vedic system. Consequently we see Pebble Maths as a beacon in maths education and full endorse its aims and principles.
There is a natural and an unnatural way to do most things in life. When we choose an unnatural way the outcome can be destructive. If we find the natural way, we promote intelligence and creativity which is harmonious and enjoyable.
If we explore mathematics in accordance with the natural workings of the mind, the student's innate capacity is fulfilled. Sometimes this innate capacity is paralysed by inappropriate teaching methods or trauma in a young life, however this can be overcome with Pebble Maths.
Pebble Maths is suitable for all learning styles, especially visual learners. Many learners find conventional teaching methods hard to understand. This method enables visual learners to 'see' and therefore understand. Everyone from beginner learners, those with learning difficulties to those who have achieved already but with a struggle, can open open up mental capacity and explore the flow-on creative possibilities of Pebble Maths.
This system, by exploring the patterns that are inherent in the play of the numbers, enables the students to add, subtract, multiply and divide mentally with ease. This creates confidence, not only in mathematics as there is a flow on effect in every aspect of of their lives. Please see testimonials pages.
Vera has written a teachers' manual for professional teachers as well as home school parents, tutors and all students who wish to further their understanding of mathematics. She has also made a series of videos, which make the teachings in the book very clear. Please check the products page for these items.
After achieving this solid foundation in mathematics, the students are well prepared for more advanced work in the conventional system or the student can continue learning in this natural cohesive and mental way with more advanced Vedic Maths. Course books are available for students and teachers at www.vedicmaths.org
Tutoring, teacher training and conferences are offered world wide.
