Mathematics, as a subject is indispensable in the development of any nation with respect to science and technology since mathematics itself, is the language of science. In the current scenario, where virtually all attention is shifted towards technological advancements, the teaching and learning of Mathematics have to be viewed in a new light. The Math Lab ‘Number Magic' addresses these requirements.
The Mathematics Laboratory in JPS Barnagar has a collection of different specialised materials and teaching/learning aids, needed to help the students understand the concepts of Mathematics through relevant, meaningful, and concrete activities. These activities are carried out by teachers and the students to explore the world of mathematics, to learn, discover, and develop an interest in the subject.
Activities conducted in a Maths Laboratory enable a student to learn abstract concepts through concrete experiences and thus increase their understanding of ideas, enabling students to personally experience the joy of discovering principles and relationships. The activities conducted in Maths Laboratory thus develop problem-solving ability in students, allowing them to learn at their own pace.
Lab activities allow students to actually engage in ‘Learning by Doing’ rather than being passive observers or recipients of knowledge in the learning process, thus making Mathematics more ‘Learner centered’.
