RAMANUJAN MATH CLUB

“Mathematics expresses values that reflects the cosmos, including orderliness, balance, harmony, logic and abstract beauty”
-Deepak Chopra

r14The objective of Math club is to help the students recognize that Mathematics permeates the world around us.

The Ramanujan Math Club aims

·       To raise the confidence level of the students in using mathematics to analyse and solve problems both, in school and real-life situations.

·       To help the students to explore and enjoy the beauty and power of mathematics.

·       To acquire a clear perspective of the nature of mathematics.

This year our club was inaugurated on  23rd June 2015 by Ms.Huldah Samuel,  staff advisor of the SCM Unit of MCC.

As a part of our Math club activities, a guest lecture was given by Dr.S.Mohana Murugan, lecturer, Saveetha School of Engineering on the topic “Application of Mathematics in Engineering and in Real Life” in the month of August 2015.

A mime on the topic – Mensuration was conducted by Mac Trics (a mime and theatre group) on 10th Feb.2016.

r15Mathematics has aesthetic value. Quizzes, puzzles and magic squares are both entertaining and challenging.  Keeping this in mind, the Ramanujan Math Club conducted various activities like Hitori, Kakurao, Sudoku, Magic squares, Loop the loop, etc.

N.S.N. gives greater attention to prepare the students for the subsequent study of mathematics at higher levels.  Many students participated in the Math Talent Test conducted by AMTI for the academic year 2015-2016.

The Ramanujan Math Club conducted the following competitions for the academic year 2015-2016.

The Ramanujan Math Club had its successful completion on 8th March 2016 with a talent display ‘Ganith’ 2015-2016. There was a humongous contribution from all the students of Ramanujan Math Club. The talent display included puzzles, number maze, pyramid puzzles, loop the loop, mind games, Sudoku and other riddles. There were models prepared by the students on circular pathway, Mensuration, Trigonometry, Geometric man and Geometric shapes used in     day-to-day life. The excellent charts prepared by the students included the Existence of Natural Symmetry, Top Mathematicians of India and their contributions, Equivalent fraction strips and data collection. A thought providing PPT  on Vedic Math was the highlight of the day. The potential of the students to explore and present the information in a logical sequence surfaced during the club day presentation. A self portrait of Aryabhata, the great Mathematician brought so much of reverence to this great personality and his contribution. It was a stunning performance by the students who were very spontaneous in arranging the rubic cubes. Students from VI, VII, VIII and  IX participated in Ganith 2015-2016. The event ended with a resolution to perform most and more in the years to come.

NSN always encourages the students to exhibit their talents in various inter-school competitions and provides the required foundation to the students to enable them to evolve as successful mathematicians.
