Sopore, Dec 23: To mark the 136th birth anniversary of mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan, National Mathematics day was observed by Government Higher Secondary School for Boys Sopore in collaboration with Zonal Education Officer Sopore today.
The chief guest at the event was ADC Sopore S A Raina while more than 100 mathematics teachers of different schools of zone Sopore, lecturers, scholars, students and others took part in the event.
Speakers said there is a constant fear among the present generation “when it comes to mathematics” and only a few choose this subject by choice. “In order to eradicate the fear we need to identify the problem and rectify it. Teachers also are important in motivating and molding the children,” they said.
