**Testimonials from the Advanced Diploma Course**

David Robinson, math teacher, Canada | Many (most) of the ideas were new to me or were presented from a completely different perspective. I found a great deal was mind blowing in its originality. It has made me realize that my 33 years of teaching could have been much more appealing to my students. I also believe the ideas present alternatives that would lead students to be more creative (and hence better problem solvers). |

Gabrielle Wellington-Spurr, educational consultant, UK | Doing research in Vedic maths would actually be a dream come true for me. I need to spend more time becoming "fluid" and more competent with the Vedic mathematics techniques which we have covered so far but I have to say that this course has given me the most amazing boost and feeling that I am finally in the right arena for exploring maths in a way that feels natural and makes sense to me. I feel closer to a "vision" - actually more of a feeling - that I have always had about a "better" approach to maths but was never quite able to capture it. |

Shubha Belagumba Nagahanumantha Rao, maths teacher, Bangalore |
Now I love doing math because of VM. I am able to learn through those beautiful patterns. So called “difficult subjects” like Trigonometry, calculus also didn’t scare me when William sir explained. When Ken sir asked us to pause and solve a problem solution just flowed naturally. Even in this course, last week when I saw lesson titles trigonometry, calculus…. I thought “I have made a mistake selecting this course” but once I started learning nowhere I had a problem. VM is not hard for mind. |

Tarlika Desai, College lecturer in Mathematics, New York, USA | Each lesson I learned in VM I think has taken me to a totally new adventure, new thinking, new joy to say the least. This Math has opened doors to a totally new land of knowledge. I can't say enough. I have been thoroughly enjoying the varieties of vedic maths .Such a treasure of knowledge is untouched by most people in the world. |

Francisco Romero, architect, UK | After watching the last lesson on complex numbers my mind just "clicked". Until now I only saw many different procedures for solving math problems. Suddenly everything came together and now I can see the whole unified system more clearly. The consequence is that my imagination can start working independently to find applications where VM can be a great help. |

Mahendra Belani. Project Manager, NJ, USA | To me, its the myriad of methods available to solve problems - it really opens up the minds. Instead of a single way of approaching problems, there are often more elegant, alternative methods that VM offers. And best of all, the methods can be extended - usually quite easily - and this creativity is what is important for kids, especially in this day and age, where access to calculators and computers is all too easy. What is also interesting with VM is that there is, like with many disciplines, unexplored / unchartered territory, for the folks that really like to be challenged. |
