Summary

Mathematics is a tricky subject. Those who love, enjoy it much and those who don't, feel it's boring. I lost interest in mathematics while in 7th class. Based on what I remember, it was mainly due to lack of understanding of negative numbers. By nature, I am kinaesthetic person and therefore I refuse to accept anything unless understood thoroughly. Generally, just memorization doesn't work for me and the same thing happened about multiplication of negative numbers. Our teacher presented them as rules and I refused to accept them at face value. One year later my cousin grandfather started living with us and he had great interest in teaching. Moreover, his concepts in mathematics were extremely clear and he could answer all my crazy questions. This retriggered my interest in mathematics. The whole journey was so joyful that I wish everyone gets a grandfather like him who is at home to help with fundamental questions in studies. 
Later, when I was in 9th I was introduced to Vedic Math by my close friend. At that time, I thoroughly enjoyed it and started using it to an extend where I completely forgot methods taught in the school. Few years back I started taking courses in Vedic math and I repeatedly received questions about relevance of the course in school. Even though these methods cannot be directly used in school today, some of the methods are being included in school curriculum and therefore I decided to author books as per the curriculum. 
While developing Vedic Math book for a particular class I realized that numbers being abstract, it's also important to explain some of the concepts through art and craft. Therefore, I decided to also add Creative Math as a part of this book. This is because learning is much more effective through Activities and Games for many. 
            When I started thinking about developing books as per the curriculum, next question was which board to follow. After a bit of research, I got to know that CBSE is most popular board in India and therefore I decided to develop Vedic Math books for CBSE curriculum. Finally, I had a choice of developing books from class I and I decided to develop books for secondary school first. I first published a book for class 8 and received very good response. Therefore, we released 2nd edition of 'Vedic Math for 8th Class'. Now I am pleased to release Vedic and Creative Math for 7th Class. 
            The structure of this book and sequence of CBSE syllabus is not the same and it is intentional. The book is divided into three sections. Section I is to learn basic principles, section II is for application of principles and section III covers Creative Geometry. Section I is mostly to explain the methods and it is important to refer section II to confirm that concepts are understood and ability to apply concepts is developed in pupils. Section III mainly uses Creative Math to explain concepts of geometry. It is fun to learn geometry in this manner rather than conventional method. 
          The book is designed in such a way that all required methods from Vedic Math are covered here and the student need not refer to any other book to learn the basics. Additionally, numbers (data) are represented in pictorial format or charts wherever appropriate. This certainly simplifies the learning. Geometry is explained through activities and this makes the learning very simple and easy to retain. The key focus of this book is Fractions, Decimals and Integers. I am confident that this is fun and joyful journey to all the students and their parents.

    NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 
    "If you’ve ever wondered how you have the capacity to wonder, some fascinating insights await you in these pages.” --Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals 
    As concise and enlightening as Seven Brief Lessons on Physics and Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, this mind-expanding dive into the mystery of consciousness is an illuminating meditation on the self, free will, and felt experience. 
    What is consciousness? How does it arise? And why does it exist? We take our experience of being in the world for granted. But the very existence of consciousness raises profound questions: Why would any collection of matter in the universe be conscious? How are we able to think about this? And why should we? 
    In this wonderfully accessible book, Annaka Harris guides us through the evolving definitions, philosophies, and scientific findings that probe our limited understanding of consciousness. Where does it reside, and what gives rise to it? Could it be an illusion, or a universal property of all matter? As we try to understand consciousness, we must grapple with how to define it and, in the age of artificial intelligence, who or what might possess it.  
    Conscious offers lively and challenging arguments that alter our ideas about consciousness—allowing us to think freely about it for ourselves, if indeed we can.
