Vedic Maths

Reading a yesterdays article on Wired about indian students learning Vedic maths to crack the university exams I was intrigued (as a math student myself) to find out what these maths are about.
Googling a bit brought me to this page:
It’s an explanation of the sutras (formulas) vedic maths use to make various calculations with your own mind a LOT faster. After reading a bit I was able to calculate multiplications of 2 2digit numbers in under 2 seconds without any paper writing with ŨRDHVA TIRYAGBHYĀM (e.g 43*33=1419).

There are various other formulas inside there and it’s really worth reading if you are a math student of you need maths for your work. It’s a time saviour!
