MATH2SHINE EXPANDS

Math2Shine got its first corporate customer in 2022. It was a large size IT company out of Hyderabad. As part of their employee benefits program,  25 + children of their employees enrolled with us for the five-month Vedic Math online learning program. Children have diverse backgrounds and ages.

All students have a unique Math2Shine user name for their learning and practice. Children were solving worksheets in the portal when the classes were being conducted. The teacher can see the precise details of where the children are stuck and which step they need more clarification. The teacher and students can precisely track the assigned homework and classwork completion.

We have received an overwhelming response from all the participants in delivering the Vedic Math program. The corporate HR department and the parents have appreciated our program due to the observed significant jump in student performance improvement. Our “Data Informed Human Driven” Ed-Tech solution helped us achieve a high learning outcome.

If you are interested in having a similar program or using our Ed-Tech solution, please get in touch with us at or .

This is very new. At present there are just two articles.

Let us know what you think. The Blog is under the Community tab at www.vedicmaths.org

TIRTHAJI’S 5TH PROOF OF PYTHAGORAS THEOREM – what do you think?

Chapter 37 Of Bharati Krishna Tirthaji’s book “Vedic Mathematics” shows five proofs of Pythagoras’ Theorem. As is normal with mathematical proofs each of these rests on some simpler known result.

For the fifth proof Tirthaji writes:

This proof is from Co-ordinate Geometry. And, as modern Conics and Co-ordinate Geometry (and even Trigonometry) take their genesis from Pythagoras' Theorem, this process would be objectionable to the modern mathematician. But, as the Vedic Sutras establish their Conics and Co-ordinate Geometry (and even their Calculus), at a very early stage, on the basis of first principles and not from Pythagoras' Theorem (sic), no such objection can hold good in this case.

The proposition is the one which gives us the distance between two points whose co-ordinates have been given. Let the points be A and B and let their co-ordinates be (a, 0) and (0, b) respectively.

Then, BA = √[(a-0)2 + (0-b)2] = √(a2 + b2), therefore BA2 = a2  + b2  Q.E.D.

Since the usual derivation for the formula for the distance between two points in coordinate geometry relies on Pythagoras’ Theorem, Tirthaji’s proof may appear at first sight to be contradictory.

The explanation, implied by the text, is that the formula for the distance between two points can be derived independently of Pythagoras’ Theorem.

It would be interesting to find a derivation of the formula Tirthaji quotes using coordinate geometry and without invoking Pythagoras’ Theorem.

This is an interesting challenge that you may wish to consider. Let us know if you have a solution.

PEBBLE MATHS VIDEOS

Vera Stevens at Pebble Maths is creating a series of videos for teaching her system, which is a natural precursor to Vedic maths. This should be ready quite soon at https://www.pebblemaths.org.

The videos will be available by subscription: different plans for schools and individuals.

DR KAPOOR’S 17 PAPERS NOW ALL AVAILABLE

​Dr S. K. Kapoor’s consolidation of his study and research in Vedic mathematics values are now all available at https://www.vedicmaths.org/community/research

‘MASTER FORMULA’ PROOF

The ‘master-formula’ that finds powers and roots and solves polynomial equations, and was proved only up to the 2nd degree in Kenneth Williams’ book “The Crowning Gem” has now been proved in full. This will be in Kenneth’s new Calculus book soon to be published.

MATH2SHINE EXPANSION - OPPORTUNITIES

Kenneth Williams and his student Lokesh Tayal founded Math2Shine to take Vedic Math to the masses. They want to train hundreds of thousands of teachers and let Vedic Math value be genuinely recognized. They want future generations to be more Math confident.

Math2Shine recognizes that Vedic Math is complimentary to Curriculum Math and Abacus. The results obtained in the Math2Shine platform across multiple countries are fantastic. Teachers and the students like it, and also like the system.

We want to reach out to the people who can help us with scaling. We are looking for multiple types of skills to help us grow.

• Join Math2Shine as a Tutor Franchise. We will share the revenue with you.
• Please help us to bring more teachers to the platform. Please see an Adult Training program video playlist here:https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0mXksNkpB-B_YP5kXdyBsCzL59Odypxy
• Join Math2Shine as a volunteer and support us in various tasks, such as helping us do better branding, marketing, community outreach, and marketing collateral creation. In this role, numerous things are possible.
• Translate Math2Shine in languages other than English. We are focussed on teaching people Vedic Math in their language.
• Connect us to your network, organizations such as community organizations and schools that can adopt Math2Shine.

All the above associations can be as a volunteer. Some opportunities also involve a revenue share basis. We also have a sweat equity model for some of the selected people who join us full-time and align their goals with Math2Shine.

Math2Shine is a mega Self-Funded initiative. After the product development and bringing around a thousand users, we need funds to scale Math2Shine to millions of people. Our company is based out of Singapore. If you are interested in investing in Math2Shine, please let us know.

You can also connect us to various grant providers, social impact venture capitalists, and angel investors. You can watch our investment pitch deck here: https://vedicmath.math2shine.com/Content/Investments-Details_673848159

Don't hesitate to get in touch with Lokesh Tayal ( , +65 81127164 ) for more information.
