Vedic Mathematics Academy


Age Range: 8 and up (Grades 2 and up; children with parental supervision)


This commercial site provides information and free sample tutorials on Vedic Mathematics.

What’s “Vedic Mathematics”?  As explained at the website: 

Vedic Mathematics is the name given to the ancient system of Indian Mathematics which was rediscovered from the Vedas between 1911 and 1918 by Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji (1884-1960). According to his research, all of mathematics is based on sixteen Sutras, or word-formulae.

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…. The simplicity of Vedic Mathematics means that calculations can be carried out mentally (though the methods can also be written down).

Words really don’t begin to describe this innovative way to solve math problems and mentally calculate answers to math equations. It almost makes learning math like learning fun magic tricks. Go to the website and try the free sample tutorials that explain ways to find arithmetic solutions for: 

  • Multiplication
  • Subtracting Fractions
  • Finding Square Roots
  • Division

Click on any tutorial. Read the instructions and apply the Vedic method to find the solutions to an array of sample problems. Your kids will enjoy experimenting!

For those who have never heard of or tried this method before, it will really set your mind to thinking about math differently.

If your kids struggle with mathematics the Vedic system may provide an alternative method that suits the way your child learns best. This site sells products that teach the Vedic system, but the sample tutorials are free. It also provides many links to other websites with articles, downloads, activities, and further resources for learning Vedic mathematics. We have not reviewed these other websites.

Just FYI, carries some free Vedic math tutorials. Just go to and enter “Vedic math tutorials” in the search engine. A menu of free instructional videos on the Vedic system pops up that you can explore on your own. We have not reviewed the YouTube presentations on Vedic math, so parents AS ALWAYS should preview the material and supervise use.

When you get to the website, you can choose from the multiplication facts shown or you can start with the pre-test link at the top of the page to determine which multiplication facts are problematic for your child/student.

There are also lessons on how to teach the times tables from zero through nine under the Parents link. And make sure to check out the games!

A+ Math Games


Age Range: 3-11 (Grades PreK-6, with parental supervision)


This website contains fun, interactive games for learning basic math facts in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and geometry.

The games include: 

  • Matho – This is math and bingo combined for “Matho”! Includes game board and games for addition, multiplication and division facts. When you get to the web page, you will see a game board with numbers on it. Below it are questions like “What is 8 x 5?” You do the math, and get the answer – in this case “40”. Then you click on the number 40 on the game board. As soon as you get 5 in a row – you have Matho!
  • Hidden Picture – Choose your subject to get to the game board with numbers on it. Above the game board are math fact problems like “8 – 3?” You find the correct answer on the game board and click on it. If you are correct a piece of the hidden picture is revealed. Once you answer all of the questions correctly – you get to see the whole picture!
  • Math Memory – Click on the type of Math Memory game you’d like to play. On the next screen, you will see 2 game boards. Both boards are covered in question marks. Click on a square on one board, and you will see a math fact like “3 + 3?” Then you click on a square on the other side to try to find the solution. The idea is to try to remember as you click from one side to the next what facts and answers lie beneath each square. Requires concentration and develops good memory skills. Once you clear both boards by finding the solution to each math fact, you win!

These games are a great way to remedy the boredom of drill and practice with basic math facts.

When you finish the games, check out the rest of the site to find flashcards and worksheets and homework help. Highly recommended!
