I’m glad you both enjoyed the course Mallika. Thanks for the encouraging comments, I hope we meet again in a future course.
No, there is no need to send a recording Savita.
The Advanced course starts in one week – on 29th March.
You will hear shortly regarding assignments.
These points were addressed. There is not really any minimum age: at the beginning the child simply enjoys having fun with numbers, the more specific methods taught in this course can be started around age 8 years. I also mentioned about Vera Stevens.
The confusion you mention was explained in lesson 9. For a young child teaching should not be by rote – if it is approached as a fun activity it will be accepted gladly. The rigid approach to teaching must go – there is no right or wrong way.
In the list of lessons, just before lesson 1 there is a link “VM-Download Materials”.
The template can be downloaded from there, it’s at the top of the list.
It will be at least another week before the final results are published by the Pasyanthi Team.
Yes, definitely Preeti.
It’s an introduction to VM so aim to impress. Squaring numbers that end in 5, multiplying numbers near a base, division by 9, adding and subtacting fractions would be good alternatives (see lesson 20).
I believe it is 2 weeks.
You would need to write it as 11 where the first 1 is a subscript.
Then you would carry it to the 2 once the calculation is completed.
But given 198 it would be easier to write it as 20(2).
22nd March is the new deadline Shikha.
It’s best not to apply bar digits here, but should still work out if you do.
You arrived at the end with 69(11).
This converts directly to 6889.
It is certainly worth experimenting with the bar numbers to become familiar and get an idea when to apply them.
You have it, and summed it up perfectly with
‘So in triplet we can skip the element which is divisible by 3 and only take the digit sum of other elements’.
That is ok Shikha. The angle is the same.
If you subtract them the other way around you will get 7,1,-.
It is usual to put the line with the steeper slope on the top.
If you think about it, the angle between two lines could be expressed by several angles.
