The Mathematical Sciences Foundation has a vast amount of
experience in enabling students to undertake various activities
of discovery and creativity for improving their all round abilities
related to mathematics. This strengthens their curriculum-based
learning and also brings about creativity, better communication
and group activity skills.
The Foundation has already had experience in setting up of
mathematics labs in schools. The Math Lab aims to achieve appreciation
of mathematics by providing students with improved conceptualization.
This would introduce a trend of integrating computer technologies
with various areas of the mathematics. It would provide powerful
desktop computers equipped with several mathematical simulations
to provide the students the comfort of performing numerical
experiments and simulations at their convenience. We shall make
significant use of Information technology and thus students
shall also become far more aware of the importance of the role
of computers in their lives. Experiments shall be designed and
conducted in various ways.
The salient features of a Mathematics
It helps in making clear and in understanding
It saves teachers time by cutting short certain lengthy
It helps in developing the habit of verifications in
the student. They accept mathematical truths only after
testing their validity practically.
It enables the students to apply mathematical facts
and principles in actual life.
It would enable the students to learn by practically
doing the things and hence enabling them to retain concepts
in their mind for longer time.
It would motivate students to explore/discover new concepts
in mathematics and related fields. They can also in the
process design their own experiments.
The Foundation has the required software, hardware and expertise
to design various mathematics experiments, teaching modules
and simulations to set up such Math Labs. We will be also be
conducting frequent workshops at various schools to train the
teachers and the students to make use of this software in their
