National Mathematics Day (NMD)
In recognition of the contributions of the legendary Indian mathematician, Sri. Srinivasa Ramanujan, the Union Government of India in 2012 had decided to celebrate December 22, birthday of Srinivasa Ramanujan, as the National Mathematics Day every year. The basic objective of celebrating National Mathematics Day (NMD) is to spread the message of importance of mathematics for the development of humanity. Various initiatives are encouraged to enthuse, motivate and inculcate a positive attitude to learn mathematics among the younger generation of the country. Capacity building of teachers & students through training/ camps in Mathematics, development, production & dissemination of teaching learning materials (TLMs) for Mathematics and research in related areas will be a priority.
Proposals in the prescribed format are generally invited in the month of October every year through advertisement in KSCSTE website and dailies.
