Math Monkey's curriculum is primarily based on the mathematical techniques of Vedic Math. Vedic Mathematics is the collective name given to a set of sixteen sutras (formulas) from the Vedic period in India from 1500 to 800 B.C. These sutras were originally written in Sanskrit and are built on the foundations of rigorous logic, thereby helping to guide and hone the human mind into approaches of logical reasoning.
