# National Mathematics Day

**"Without mathematics, there's nothing you can do. **

**Everything around you is mathematics. Everything around you is numbers."**

** - Shakuntala Devi**

**National Mathematics Day** is celebrated every year on December 22, honoring the birth anniversary of mathematical genius **Srinivasa Ramanujan.** Before he died at the age of just 32 , he had already given the world around 3500 mathematical formulae that scientists have still not been able to completely prove. The main objective behind celebrating the day is to raise awareness among people about the importance of mathematics for the development of humanity.

The legendary mathematician **Srinivasa Ramanujan** made extraordinary contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series & continued fractions. From compiling over 3900 mathematical results and equations to getting discoveries named after him, his numerous assertions in mathematics opened up new vistas of mathematical research.

**National Mathematics Day** was first observed in 2012 when former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh declared this day as National Mathematics Day on February 26, 2012, when he was visiting the Madras University in order to pay tribute to Ramanujan's achievements and celebrated his 125th birth anniversary. Since then, it is observed every year on December 22 to honour Ramanujan's work in the field of mathematics.

**Gajera Vidyabhavan Sachin,** celebrated National Mathematics Day with great joy. Our educator explained the history of this day and also told them about **Srinivasa Ramanujan **and his achievements. Our tiny kids do different activities to make Maths fun with learn.

**Primary section** students sang a song on Maths Day which was really good. And performed a dance on **" Maths me dabba Gul " **. Our audience also enjoyed the dance performance and enjoyed this day. Our Principal sir gave a wonderful speech and told inspiring story related to Maths to our students.
