Residential camps on Maths
Start Date : 17 May 2016 TO End Date : 22 May 2016
Dear Teachers, Students & Friends,
Since last 6 years we have been doing a National-level residential camp Vedic Mathrix at Chinmaya International Foundation (CIF) in April on ancient Indian Mathematics. This year we would be having two more residential camps in Pune.
The idea of these camps is to show the application and use of ancient Indian Mathematics in modern day scenario.
For example, in the camp Simpli5 at Chinmaya Vibhooti, Kolwan (Pune), the topic of Magic Squares and Katapayadi number system will be explored further to try and see how it can be applied in areas like Cryptography.
In Vedic Maths camp at Chinmaya Maauli, Pune, numerical techniques in Vedic Mathematics will be discussed along with games and activities.
In Vedic Mathrix camp at CIF, Cochin, the topic of Yantras (mystic diagrams) will be discussed along with certain other interesting topics in Geometry and Numbers. Yantras have been a part of Indian culture and their geometric constructions are mind boggling. The camp will give an opportunity to understand the underlying mathematical structure that makes the geometrical figures mystical.
Why these camps?
Just because these are topics that are not easily available to learn for the lay man.
Who will be benefited from the camp?
Anyone who have a flair for Mathematics will be benefited from these camps. The Vedic Maths camp at Chinmaya Maauli is also suitable for those who fear Mathematics.
About the locations
