Mathematics is the pillar of Science and Technology. The advancement of human civilization can be somewhat attributed to this subject. Many modern discourses such as Numerology also have their origin in Mathematics. The credit for all these belongs to one and only Mr. Srinivasa Ramanujan. To pay tribute to him, 22nd December, his birthday is celebrated as the National Mathematics Day.
The main motto of mathematics day celebration is to make people aware of the significance of numbers in life. A plethora of activities were conducted across grades at Lotus Valley International School, Gurugram to strengthen learners' mathematical skills and reignite their ardour for the subject.
Using the Spin Wheel, Numbola, and Each Number Counts, our Pre-Nursery learners happily participated in a variety of engaging games and activities. The 'My Math Mat' activity enthralled nursery students, who used their imaginations to investigate the various graphics given by mentors showing pre-number concepts, shapes, and quantification. With the project 'Zentangle Art - Lines on my thoughts,' our Grade Prep mathematicians were exposed to the world of lines and pattern. Grade I students learnt the significance of this special day through an informative video and a collaborative conversation. Sudoku, a fun number problem, was used to increase learners’ attention as well as their math skills. A presentation on Srinivasa Ramanujan's life and work was shown to students of grades II and III, followed by a fun mathematics trick and a quiz based on fundamental mental math problems.
