PROGRAMMES AT VASISTA
Tarka Shashtra (logic and reasoning program for children)
Nyāya is the science of logic, and provides the only sound methodology of inquiry into the nature of knowledge and the objects of knowledge. The only way to impart our experience to others and to elucidate their implications for the rest of our life and defend their validity against hostile criticism is by means of logic.
Nyāya in Sanskrit signifies “going into a subject,” — an analytical investigation of the subject through the process of logical reasoning. Nyāya is also called Tarka-Vidya, “science of reasoning,” or Vāda-Vidya “science of discussion.”
Wherever there is constructive thinking directed at acquiring real understanding there is a need for logic. It investigates the objects of our present perception, not their origin. It lays down the rules of syllogistic reasoning for the purpose of examining the objects of perceptions. It is the operative cause of Right knowledge and classifies the different ways in which knowledge is acquired.
Bala Ganitha: Fun filled mathematics
Bala Ganitha exposes young learners to basic math concepts helps lay the groundwork for a future understanding of mathematics. It is high-quality, challenging, and accessible mathematics and provides early childhood learners with a vital foundation for the future.
With its carefully crafted curriculum and deeply trained instructors, the Bala Ganitha employs lively and innovative methods of teaching higher level math and advanced logical reasoning skills.
While traditional teaching generally focuses on the memorization and application of algorithms, the Bala Ganitha helps students develop advanced problem-solving skills in an interactive environment full of fun games, stories and puzzles.
Visualization techniques allow students to understand advanced concepts about numbers, sets, relations and functions that are usually brushed over in traditional – and even gifted – math classes in school.
It reduces the burden of remembering large amount of stuff because it requires you to learn tables up to 9 only. It enables faster calculations when compared to the conventional method. It acts as a tool for reducing finger counting and scratch work.
Vedic maths plays an important role in increasing concentration as well as improving confidence. It is very simple, direct, totally unconventional, original and straight forward. It encourages mental calculations and enriches our understanding of maths and enables us to see links and continuity between different branches of maths.
Vedic maths system also gives us a set of checking procedures for independent crosschecking of whatever we do. It keeps the mind alert and lively because of the element of choice and flexibility at each concept.
Its benefits include, coherence, consistency and logic, improves memory, promotes creativity, appeals to everyone, increases mental agility, it is efficient and fast, and it is easy and fun learning.
Says Vinuthan, the man behind Vasista: “I have a firm belief in Vedic philosophy and I am just applying it to our daily life. With an engineering degree and years of experience in computer education and CAT teaching, Vasista was born out of my passion and dedication. Only after establishing Vasista I realised that Tarka Shashtra, Vedic Maths and other concepts are so popular.”
“We at Vasista focus on problem solving, analytical application of concepts and reasoning. There are about 40 thinking skills and we focus precisely on them. For example, every individual or a child can be grouped as believer, impulsive, dependent, rigid, always, right, fear and dense. We try and overcome their weaknesses by teaching logic and probability. And the base of our teaching is the ancient texts,” explains Shilpa B, Director, Vasista.
“Our meticulously designed games, stories and puzzles emphasises logical thinking and abstract reasoning. We use visual and physical devices to teach advanced concepts in creative ways,” she adds.
Vasista also conducts workshops on Vedic maths for 10th and PU students and for the aspirants of competitive exams like IIT JEE and banking.
