National Mathematics Day Celebration 2015 - 1st At Home Competition for Students of Class VI to VIII

Published by Ganit Charcha

This is inspiring for the students and maths enthusiasts to know that 22nd December is celebrated in India as National Mathematics Day. Indian legendary mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan was born on 22nd December 1887 and died on 26th April 1920 at his age of only 33 years. In order to recognize his immense contribution towards Mathematics the Government of India had declared Ramanujan’s birthday to be celebrated every year as the National Mathematics Day.

This year GanitCharcha and KIFSA are going to jointly organize an ‘At Home Competition’ for the school students of Class VI to VIII to celebrate National Mathematics Day of India. Competition is only for students of Class VI to VIII studying in India. Enrolment to the 'At Home Competition' is free.

Last day of submission has been extended to January 20, 2016 (12 Noon IST).

entertained for evaluation.

The best two answers from each of class VI, VII and VIII will be declared as winners of the competition. There will be four six consolation prizes. The names of the prize winners will be declared on the GanitCharcha's web page sometime around mid of February. All the prize winners will also be informed by email and phone calls.
