# Vedic Mathematics Class 5th – Ebook

**Vedic Mathematics** is a book written by the Indian monk Bharati Krishna Tirtha, and first published in 1965. It contains a list of mathematical techniques, which the author claimed were retrieved from the Vedas and supposedly contained all mathematical knowledge.

These claims have been since rejected in their entirety. Krishna Tirtha failed to produce the claimed sources, and scholars unanimously note it to be a mere compendium of tricks for increasing the speed of elementary mathematical calculations with no overlap with historical mathematical developments during the Vedic period. However, there has been a proliferation of publications in this area and multiple attempts to integrate the subject into mainstream education by right-wing Hindu nationalist governments.
