Mathematics is to science what grammar is to English. We cannot make sense of the physical world without a sound knowledge of Maths. It is the very essence of science.
It is being felt that one of the major problems in Academics is fear of Mathematics. It is due to the low level of anxiety, as the activity of Mathematics learning is not systematic. We tried to systematize the learning process so that students enjoy being in touch with Mathematics.
The students are taken to the Maths lab periodically where a number of activities are conducted to make the learning process so simple and interesting.
Models on Abacus, Shapes, Weighing Machines, and Cans to measure capacity are there in the lab to make the respective concept very clear.
Many charts and pictures showing addition, skip counting, multiplication, before, after and between, divisions, and place value are used to make the different aspects of Mathematics imprinted in their young minds.
