Our conventional mathematics is rather clumsy, dumb and what have you,

There is a much better and more elegant mathematics called "Galactic Mathematics" or "Vedic Mathematics:

It uses sutra's for solving mathematical problems.

From simple arithmetic to calculus (Higher mathematics).

By some it is seen as a 'bag of tricks' but only,and only then, when you start working with it you get a feel for how elegant and intelligent this wholse system is.

Some, for now, very simple, arithtmatic

First do them in the conventional way and show how it is done, than I will do the Vedic Math way

What is:

63 x 67=?

23 x 11=?

25/9=

98 x 99=

75 ^2=

123/9=

Interested?

63x67 ... 63x10 = 630. x20 is 1260. x40 is 2520. x60 is 3780. x7 is 441 therefore 63*67= 4221.
23x11 ... 230x10 is 230. +23 = 253.
25/9 ... 25/10 is 2.5 making /9 3.7.
98x99 ... 98x100 is 9800. -98 is 9702.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

that is can be done even faster and easier with Galactic Math.

Just key them into a calculator.  What Sir Wearer of Hats did is show how they can be computed if you have no calculator nor pen and pencil and need to do them in your head.  I was taught all that and even how to use logarithms to solve problems but forgot it all when pocket calculators became available.

Smiley face or no I think that was rude.  I guess that's what I don't like about emoticons; they don't undo what you say and seem hypocritical.

Prove it.
The longest it took me was about three minutes and that was the first one.
Thevrest I'm about a minute. Ten seconds for the 98*99 one.

Thank you, Taslerrynsayden for one thing though. I've been doing "rounding techniques" with my students for a few weeks now and I was wondering if anyone was learning anything. Turns put I learnt something at least.

As Sir W states, there are plenty of tricks available, if you just think for a moment about the numbers you are working with.  Perhaps some do come from Vedic sources, but many cultures have absorbed techniques from others.  I learnt most of my tricks not from school, but from the stunning (mind and body!!) Lily Serna in the Australian ABC series "Letters & Numbers"

But why not get to the point and show exactly how these other methods are better/faster on the examples shown?  I'm puzzled why you didn't just do that at the start...

And while I don't use calculus, differentiation, integration, derivatives and all that sorta stuff much these days, feel free to show us that too.  But please use real world examples, fully enumerated and provide a step by step explanation.

Why come and speak about something that's apparently better than all other mathematics, yet not show us examples?

It's all false prophet-like.

While we're waiting for the crickets to be quietened by our OP's triumphant return.. I admit I posted the wrong link, as that one showed the contestants abilities... here's Lily at her beautiful best with a very cool bit of numeric manipulation:

(Emphasis mine.) That sounds fantastic!

Can you show me how to use sutras to quickly find the eigenfunctions of the differential operator:
d2/dx12 + d2/dy12 + d2/dz12 + d2/dx22 + d2/dy22 + d2/dz22 + a r1-1 + b r2-1 + c ((x1-x2)2 + (y1-y2)2 + (z1-z2)2)-0.5 + E

(where r12 = x12 + y12 + z12, and r22 = x22 + y22 + z22 and a, b, c, and E are real numbers.)
??

If you can help me work it out with your ``galactic math'', I will be happy to share the Nobel prize in physics and the Fields Medal in mathematics with you.

I think when he says mathematics he really has arithmetic in mind.

Ah, with all the tools available nowadays to do math, there is something to be said about a pen and paper (given what you listed above, several pieces of paper).
