A Mathematical educational excursion was held at Jantar Mantar in Jaipur to foster maths activity-based learning and to remove maths phobia in a child. Jantar Mantar is one of the largest ancient astronomical observatories in India based on the principal of Mathematics and Physics.
Here children had a great learning session along with the hands-on activity. Different topics such as angles, elevations, measurement, shapes etc. were discussed during this session. Children also came to know how the observatory was built during ancient times when there were no measuring instruments. Children also got to know the accuracy of this instrument. The Mentor and the Guide deputed for the same explained these things in a better way to the children, where the children had a great learning and knowledgeable session. There was a question and answer session where the children got a chance to clear their doubts and ideas regarding the same.
Children were taken to nearby monuments for local sight-seeing. In total, 21 students were accompanied by their teacher escort Mr Manoj Karemore. Students reached back to school on October 17, 2018.
It was an initiative taken by the Department of Mathematics to inculcate the Mathematics learning in a child.
