“Mathematics is the most beautiful and most powerful creation of the human spirit”
National Mathematics Day is celebrated every year on 22 December to recognize the achievements of the Indian Mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan who was born on this date in 1887.
Ramanujan was one of the youngest members of Britain’s Royal Society and the first Indian to be elected a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge University. His contribution to mathematical analysis, infinite series, continued fractions and number theory was immense. Ramanujan is most popular for his contribution in analytical theory of numbers, elliptic functions, continued fractions, and infinite series.
Ramanujan also discovered his own theorems and compiled as many as 3,900 results independently. Academicians across the globe agree that his theories transformed 20th century mathematics and continue to shape the subject in the 21st century.
An Equation for me Has no Meaning, Unless it Expresses a Thought of God
Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms: it is about understanding
“Without mathematics, there’s nothing you can do. Everything around you is mathematics. Everything around you is numbers.”
The recently-introduced National Education Policy of 2020 lays special emphasis on mathematics, applied mathematics, and Vedic mathematics. The draft reads, “On the curricular side, there will be an increased focus on counting, arithmetic, and mathematical thinking – throughout the preparatory and middle school curriculum.”
STEAMEDU through its highly engaging online workshops provides an ecosystem for authentic research & innovation early from the school age to infuse related principles and practices into S.T.E.A.M.
