“Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms: it is about understanding.” – William Paul Thurston

Mathematics expresses itself everywhere in almost every facet of life- in nature all around us and in the technology in our hands. Mathematics develops computational skills, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Maxfort School, Rohini recognizes this and strives hard to ensure that the students obtain this knowledge. Under the able guidance of respected Principal ma’am Dr. Ratna Chakravarty, the National Mathematics Day was celebrated on 22 December 2023 to honor the famous Mathematician Sir Srinivasa Ramanujan, the world-famous Mathematician who made remarkable contributions in different fields and branches of the subject Mathematics. He has greatly contributed towards mathematical analysis, number theory,infinite series, continued fractions, elliptic integrals, the Riemann series and thehypergeometric series. Plethora of activities were conducted to celebrate this day in the school.

In homage to the mathematical prodigy Srinivasa Ramanujan, students enthusiastically celebrated National Mathematics Day. The day was marked by engaging activities, games, and quizzes, all designed to unravel the mystique of Ramanujan’s mathematical brilliance.

Activities Conducted:

  1. Mathematical Games:Students actively participated in a series of interactive mathematical games. These games, inspired by Ramanujan’s problem-solving approach, aimed to instil a sense of joy and curiosity in mathematical exploration.In this activity students demonstrated the different aspects of Mathematics in a creative way.
  2. Mathematical Models Showcase:  Students showcased their creativity and mathematical acumen by constructing models inspired by Ramanujan’s theorems. These models provided a tangible representation of abstract mathematical concepts, making learning both visual and hands-on.
  3. Ramanujan Quiz:A spirited Ramanujan-themed quiz was organized, challenging students to test their knowledge of Ramanujan’s life, contributions, and mathematical principles. The quiz fostered healthy competition and deepened students’ understanding of the mathematical genius.
  4. Mathematics and Strategy Games:In the spirit of Ramanujan’s love for mathematical puzzles, students engaged in strategy games that required logical thinking and problem-solving skills. These activities aimed to develop analytical reasoning while embracing the fun side of Mathematics.

With the praiseworthy support of the honourable Principal ma’am, Dr. Ratna Chakravarty, celebration of National Mathematics Day was a resounding success, blending education with fun to pay homage to the legacy of Srinivasa Ramanujan. Through games, models, and a captivating quiz, students not only delved into the world of Ramanujan’s Mathematics but also experienced the joy of exploring the subject in innovative and interactive ways. All the students participated with full enthusiasm. It was a great learning experience. The only way to learn Mathematics is to do Mathematics. Thus, the students learnt that Mathematics is not about numbers, computations or algorithms: it is about understanding. This celebration served as a testament to the enduring impact of Ramanujan’s genius on the appreciation and understanding of Mathematics among students.
