Abstract

The study enlightens the effectiveness of Vedic Mathematics in learning Subtraction at standard IV. Objectives of the study: [i] To find out the significant difference in achievement mean score between Pretest of Controlled group and Posttest of Controlled group. [ii] To find out the significant difference in achievement mean score between Pretest of Experimental group and Posttest of Experimental group. [iii] To find out the significant difference in achievement mean score between Posttest of Controlled group and Posttest of Experimental group. Methodology: Parallel group experimental method. Samples: Twenty four pupils studying in standard IV from Government Primary School, Kalveerampalayam, Coimbatore. Twelve students were considered as Controlled group and another twelve students were considered as Experimental group. Tool: Researcher’s selfmade Achievement test. Reliability of the tool: The reliability of the tool was calculated by splithalf method and the calculated reliability value was 0.72. Procedure of the study: [i] Identification of the problem by administrating a Pretest for both the group [ii] Teaching and learning activities through Vedic method and Conventional method. [iii] Administrating Posttest. Findings: [i] There is no significant difference in achievement mean score between the Pretest of Controlled group and Posttest of Controlled group. [ii] There is a significant difference in achievement mean score between the Pretest of Experimental group and Posttest of Experimental group. [iii] There is a significant difference in achievement mean score between the Posttest of Controlled group and Posttest of Experimental group.
