AB - <p>‘Catch the fox’ paradigm is not for the school system where every child is striving for the best in developing their basic numeracy in Mathematics and looking up for teaching strategy with affective quality. The purpose of the study was to assess the effectiveness of Vedic mathematics strategy, compared to conventional method to enhance the basic numeracy skills of students at government school of Chandigarh. Study was experimental in nature having pre-test, post-test design. With a random selection of school, Sample of around 140, 7th grade students of age between 11-13 were matched and put under experiment group and control group (70 each) which were further treated by Vedic mathematics and conventional method of teaching respectively. Results through statistical analysis exhibited the significance difference between the mean gain scores of students under the entire sub divided categories i.e. below average, average, above average while comparing the control group and experiment group which rejected the null hypothesis. The evident gains in pupil performance displayed the effectiveness of teaching through Vedic mathematics followed by the suggestion for large-scale research study to have better insight of it so that it can be implemented under the mathematics curriculum to improve students’ basic mathematics learning.</p>
