Teachers and students from different schools made a joint effort to hold first “maths mela” of the district. Exhibited models, charts and slogans related to mathematics not only created awareness among students but also conveyed the message that ‘mathematics is an interesting subject if taught in right way”. This two days maths mela was held at Bhartiya Vidya Mandir Senior Secondary School Udham Singh Nagar.

Deamchild of Krishan Kumar Director General Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan Punjab, this ‘maths -mela” was organised under the supervision of Pardeep KUmar kapoor District Science supervisor Ludhiana. Students and teachers of nine schools displayed about 50 models depicting mathematics formulas, theorems and facts. The slogans like “sau, hazar, lakh, crore, ganit sikhanda karne jod” and ‘jod ghatao, guna te bhag, badalda zindagi de hisaab” etc were eye catching.

Pardeep Kumar Kapoor said,”We invited models etc from 15 schools who participated in the state level exhibition of science and mathematics. But only 9 turned up. Three of these are government schools.I think due to the last week of December many school teachers must be on leave. So they didnot turn up. However I am yet to know the exact reason for not participating.”

When asked as why other schools were not informed about the ‘maths mela’, Kapoor said,”The Director general of SSA asked me to first start with quality and not quantity.We selected only those schools which participated in state level exhibition. In near future we will involve more schools.”

To enhance the interest of students in mathematics, ‘maths-tambola’ was played. It was based on the quiz type questions based on mathematics.
