Maths can be fun
Aryabhatta, born in AD 476, is the first astronomer to have stated that the sun is the centre of the solar system pre-empting Copernicus by almost 1000 years. It is in his honour that the Aryabhatta Inter School Mathematics Competition is conducted annually among Delhi schools. The maths competition is conducted under two categories - the junior category for students of Std. V and the senior category for Std. VIII. The Aryabhatta competition is considered to be one of the most prestigious academic competitions in any discipline and schools across Delhi vie for the Aryabhatta trophy every year.
Held at Summerfields School in Kailash Colony, the annual event received an overwhelming response in its 23rd year recently. In fact, in view of the response received this year, the school authorities are expecting the numbers to increase further in the years to come. Also the school is hoping to increase the interest and passion for mathematics among school children and rid the subject of its image of being boring, dry and exceedingly tough through the competition.
