Importance of Mathematics ➢ Mathematics is a science fundamental to all other sciences. ➢ It is one of the oldest subjects, and is constantly being rejuvenated. ➢ It is very much alive as it heads into the 21st century. ➢ It has applications in many fields, as well as being linked to increased learning and understanding in general. ➢ Helps in logical thinking and improves the reasoning ability of a person. ➢ Enables one to approach situations from different angles and dig out the best possible solution. Raising a Mathematician Foundation
Motto of ‘RAM Foundation’ Our present day educational system gives less room for developing 'critical thinking' and 'research mentality' at a young age due to which many who are even though capable, do not pursue research. The intention is to move out of conventional 'teaching' methods and enable a 'learning' process where the children can explore and look at mathematics with a different perspective and at a different level. Through this program it is intended to induce a research mentality in children.
Provide guidance to hone their skills and talent To search mathematical talent (Age group:13-15) Mentor young talent Objective of ‘RAM Training Program’ Raising a Mathematician Foundation
Highlights of the program Raising a Mathematician Foundation ➢ Conceptual understanding of secondary/higher secondary level math along with reasoning. ➢ Proving theorems so as to understand the thought process behind the same. ➢ Learning Mathematical concepts beyond the curriculum and encouraging its application in daily life. ➢ Group discussions on various Mathematical topics to improve the skills of communication. ➢ Creating a pool of like-minded students who can share their knowledge base, encourage, motivate and get motivated by the fellow students.
Target of the program Raising a Mathematician Foundation At the end of the program, the student will be able to understand higher secondary level Mathematics and correlate different topics, thereby getting a holistic view of the subject. The student will be able to appreciate the application of Mathematical concepts in varied areas and hence understand those subjects better too. Raising a Mathematician Foundation
