According to his research all of mathematics is based on sixteen Sutras, or word formulae. **VEDIC MATHS** has been a proven course to perform better in Competitive examinations. These formulae describe the way the mind naturally works and are therefore a great help in directing the student to the appropriate method of solution. In the Vedic system 'difficult' problems or huge sums can often be solved immediately by the Vedic method. These striking and beautiful methods are just a part of a complete system of mathematics which is far more systematic than the modern 'system'. **Vedic Maths** manifests the coherent and unified structure of mathematics and the methods are complementary, direct and easy.

#### What is the Age Group to start this Program ?

The Abacus 'D' Maths Academy Program is specifically designed for children between the ages of 5-15. It is specifically designed for children between these age ranges because research show that these ages tend to benefit most from the Abacus 'D' Maths Academy Program. The human brain has an amazing capacity to grow and change throughout life. Without the opportunity to be used, neurons can actually wither away and die. Although the brain at any age can be altered or helped to compensate for problems, with the appropriate intensive intervention, for optimal development, timing is critical. There are periods of opportunity, "prime times" during which the brain is particularly efficient at specific types of learning. In the first decade of life, the brain's ability to grow, change and compensate is especially remarkable. The young brain is like a super sponge, absorbing every experience into its neural architecture. During these first few years the brain is storing information and memories that will be the foundation for a lifetime of skills and potential. If this foundation is flawed, it can affect the entire life span of the individual. Early care provides the experiences that have decisive and long lasting effects on the emotional, social, behavioral, intellectual and physical capabilities of the child for the rest of their life.
