Abstract

The present study aimed to study the effect of Vedic Mathematics on achievement in algebra among adolescents with respect to different levels of intelligence. The study revealed that the mean score of experimental group is greater than the controlled group, which proves that Vedic mathematics is more effective than conventional method. This technique can be more useful for high intelligence group and average intelligence group. This study also indicates that there was no significant difference in the gain scores on achievement in Mathematics due to interactional effect of instructional strategies and intelligence. Technique of vedic mathematics is very helpful in competitive exam where learner have to solve lengthy mathematical problem in short span of time.
