Product Description

Use Fractions to Multiply!: Vedic Mental Math

It's all about patterns. Mathematics is applied in the proportions of gears within a simple clock. Many of the devices from a bicycle to a missile launch apply principles like those behind this book.

The book Use Fractions to Multiply! will not turn you into one of those amazing savants who perform incredible math stunts before an astounded audience. It will, however, take you deeper into the mathematical wonderland than the topical presentations you normally see in books written by those who solve complex problems without even needing to understand the process. This little book will make you better at fractions, math, and algebra.

Mental math is largely about pattern recognition. This book will help you recognize patterns you never noticed before. When you learn them, you will be well on the way toward huge strides in improved performance. The properties of specific numbers are significant, even beyond the ratios and proportions involved in this book. This book is about two digit and three digit multiplication. Anything that results in up to six digits as a product is included. So this book will also include methods for multiplying mixed digit numbers.

In Use Fractions to Multiply!: Vedic Mental Math you will learn:

  • Vedic math shortcuts for rapid calculations of three digit multiplication
  • An interesting, creative process filled with vedic arithmetic shortcuts
  • A great way for kids to learn basic Vedic mathematical concepts
  • How the multiplication of two and three digit numbers are bidirectional problems
  • How to use these techniques for doing speed math in ways that will motivate your children and grandchildren to learn as well.
  • Full of tips, tricks, shortcuts for faster mental math, superior algebra mastery, and easy rapid math tricks.
Beginning with problems as simple as 9 times 11, this book uses the basic concepts of pattern recognition and proportional relationships to teach you to solve simple math problems. Then, it progresses smoothly forward to more complex problems, including multiplying three digit numbers like 123 times 324. By breaking large numbers into fractions, the problems are solved progressively from left to right. Can you multiply 8642 times 82 quickly, and in your head? You'll be able to do it after you work your way through this book.

About the Author

John graduated from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and has an MBA from the University of Minnesota. Currently he lives in Apple Valley Minnesota. As a Merchant Mariner he traveled all over the world. His web site about vedic math which you may find interesting is at www.binomialblvd.com John ran into a Russian merchant mariner in Istanbul many years ago. They talked shop and discovered that they used some of the same books to learn their trade. When they looked at the Calculus books each had used in college the comparison fell apart. The Russian had a trim little 150 page Calculus book. John had a 600 page monster book but knew far less Calc than his new friend from Odessa. Ever since then John has had a phobia about 600 page math books, that is why his are so short. One good thing that happened from this encounter was the Russian gave him a mental math book by Trachtenburg who ironically was originally in charge of the czar's shipyards in Odessa. From there John got the mental math bug, and along the way came to believe that math phobias are the product of the way we teach the subject. From there he stumbled upon Vedic Mathematics and was so fascinated by it that he started to teach vedic math for kids in his spare time. He eventually wrote a series of four books on the subject.
