Isn't it mindboggling? That's Indian Mathematics for you.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Indian mathematics!

You've probably heard of the glorious achievements of traditional Indian thinkers, astronomers and philosophers. You would've also known about the work of such intellectuals in the field of mathematics. But did you know that mathematics was also used in day-to-day activities by the common man? It is this simplicity of Indian Mathematics that we would like to introduce you to. We are going to present to you some of the basic techniques where you can experience the power of Indian Mathematics.

Before going into that, a few words about our rich tradition. Did you know, for instance that ....

Indian mathematicians developed the concept of zero ?
Indian mathematicians developed the decimal place notation ?
Algebra was known in India centuries before it spread to Europe ?
Aryabhatta gave a proof for the Pythogoras theorem, before Pythagoras himself did ?
Aryabhatta & Bhaskara found a way to solve for 2 variables with a single equation ?

Well, it only gets more interesting !  So, just go on and explore for yourself !
