“The essence of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated, but to make complicated things simple.” —S. Gudder
Knowledge and understanding are fundamental to study Mathematics and form the base from which to explore concepts and develop problem-solving skills. Keeping this in mind, DPS Coimbatore has taken the initiative to conduct Math seminar for students under the topic “Mathematics in real life application” on 24th of August 2019.
The main objective of this programme is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the concepts and related issues to the topic. Students are encouraged to share their views with teachers and peers and to examine application of math in different fields. Critical reflection in mathematics helps students gain insight into their strengths and weaknesses as learners and to appreciate the usefulness, power and beauty of Mathematics.
The programme started at 7:30am with prayer song and followed by welcome speech. Students were asked to present papers on the topic “Mathematics in Real Life”. Students from class IX to XII were actively participated in this seminar.
The following subtopics have been selected by the students for the seminar.
- Evolution of Numbers. 2. Cryptography and Decryption.
- Statistical study of smart phones. 4. Mathematics in sports. 5. Role of Mathematics in development of Economy. 6. Game Theory.
- Math in Architecture. 8. Golden Ratio and 9. Vedic -Math.
Through seminar students are given the opportunity to apply Mathematical knowledge and problem-solving techniques to investigate a problem. It provides the platform for discussion and debate over some important aspects of the topic.
Chief Guest of this programme was Dr. Sumathi, M.sc. M.Phil, Ph.D, PGDCA. Associate Professor in Krishnammal College for Women, Coimbatore. After the students presentation chief guest has encouraged the participants and motivated them with the help of power point presentation related to this topic. Head Master Mr. Ahamad Azad has appreciated and encouraged the students for their presentation. The programme concluded with chief guest review and vote of thanks.
Students are encouraged to choose and use ICT tools for updating the knowledge to enhance communication of their mathematical ideas. Through this seminar students have learnt to become confident in using mathematics to analyze and solve problems both in school and in real-life situations and develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to pursue further studies in Mathematics.
I would like to thank our management and Head master Sir for organizing such a wonderful seminar which will create interest among the students in field of math.
