Book Description
In recent times, there have been many scholarly studies which discuss the seminal contributions of Indians in mathematics, and indicate how these contributions have influenced the development of mathematics the world over. It is also fairly established that much of the mathematics which is currently taught at the school level, largely originated in India, and formed a major component of the popular education that was widely prevalent throughout the Indian subcontinent for millennia.

Unfortunately, the curriculum and textbooks of mathematics, which are currently followed in our country, make no mention whatsoever of Indian contributions to mathematics. While a miniscule fraction of our students may be aware of the names of great mathematicians such as Aryabhata, Brahmagupta, Bhaskaracārya and Madhava, few among them would be able to recount any of the significant contributions made by these or other famous Indian mathematicians.

This series of books on "Bharatiya-Ganita-Praveŝa" is a novel initiative by Samskrit Promotion Foundation to familiarise our students with the way various concepts and techniques of mathematics have been expounded, along with interesting examples, in the great textbooks and treatises written in India from the Vedic times till the modern period. In this first volume, we have attempted to cover many of the topics which are part of the mathematics curriculum that is currently taught in classes VII-VIII. We have also included some supplementary topics from ancient Indian texts, which we think would be of interest to the students at this level. This book is aimed at students of upto class VIII with basic knowledge of Samskrit language. However, ther students can also follow the contents of the material with the help of the English anslations and the able guidance of a teacher.

The present volume, Bharatiya-Ganita-Praveśa has two parts. From arithmetic algebra and geometry, there are eight chapters included in Part I. In Part II, we ve included three chapters dealing with some supplementary topics namely, the ometrical constructions found in Sulbasütras, the fascinating topic of magic squares d, finally, a brief history of development of mathematics in India.
