School Maths Lab

Teaching of mathematics should deal with the process and not just confine to transferring the knowledge from the mind of the teachers to notebooks of students through the tip of a pen and for such a phenomenal change in teaching of mathematics, a right ambience is required and it is definitely the Mathematics Laboratory. It is because, Mathematics Laboratory can act like a concomitant between teacher and students and provides an opportunity to understand and discover the beauty, importance and relevance of mathematics as a discipline. It can be expected to enhance the pupil’s understanding of the subject as taught at the school and can also provide a glimpse of what is beyond.

The Mathematics Laboratory is a unique concept in the field of mathematics education that was introduced in the year 1994. It has come a long way in enriching mathematics at primary, secondary and senior secondary level. In developed countries, the Mathematics Laboratory is an integral part of regular curriculum.

A Mathematics Laboratory is a place where some of the mathematical activities are carried out and is akin to any other science laboratory. The way students get hands-on experience in a science laboratory, even in a Mathematics Laboratory, students should get hands-on experience and scope for new innovations. Further Mathematics Laboratory should be a learning environment where many young minds decide that mathematics is more than practicing "sums" that the teacher assigns.
