National Mathematics Day - 2021 (December 30, 2021)

The Birth anniversary of renowned Indian Mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan, December 22, was announced as National Mathematics Day by then Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh on the 125th birthday of Srinivas Ramanujan at Madras University. Henceforth, various educational institutions throughout the nation are celebrating the day with great enthusiasm. With great spirit, the Department of Mathematics, AIET, Mijar celebrated National Mathematics Day 2021 on December 30, 2021, at the Auditorium of AIET.
On behalf of National Mathematics Day, mathematics puzzle-solving and science model competitions were held for students. The puzzle-solving competition was conducted on December 23, 2021 at 3.30 PM in Rooms No. 403 and 412 of the Main Block. 87 students from first year to final year actively participated in this competition. The Science Model Competition was held on the day of celebration, i.e., December 30, 2021.

Mr. Yakoob Koyyur, Head Master of GHS Nada, Belthangady, Chief guest for the programme, Dr. Shashi Kumar from the Physics Dept., and Dr. Ajith Hebbar from the Civil Engg. Dept., judged the competition. The principal, faculty, and students from various branches witnessed the program. Soon after the competition, the formal function started. Nithin Hemaraj hosted the program. The program started with a prayer by Sharanya and Arundhathi from 5th semester ISE. Then Dr. Prashanthi K. S. welcomed the dignitaries and guests and introduced the Chief Guest Mr. Yakub Koyyur. Sathyam Pawale from 3rd-semester AIML announced the prize winners’ names and the Chief Guest handed over the prize.

The winners of the mathematics puzzle-solving competition were Nithin Hemaraj from 3rd-semester of AIML secured 1st place and 2nd place was secured by two students, Sayeed A.R. from CSE 3rd semester and Ullas H.U. from AIML 3rd semester.

K K Kaushik and team from 3rd semester CSE won first place, Satyam Pawale and team from 3rd semester AIML got 2nd place, and Fathima Thashiba and team from 3rd semester received 3rd place in the Science Model Making Competition.

Then Dr. Prameela Kolake, HoD of the Mathematics Department, gave preliminary speech, which was followed by the launch of the e-magazine “Mathroot” by the dignitaries. Mathroot contains content and concepts about mathematics for learners.

After the launch of the e-magazine, Chief Guest addressed the gathering and, in his address, Mr. Yakub Koyyur, beautifully narrated Srinivasa Ranujan’s life story and also advised the students about the importance of studies in life by giving examples of great souls like Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam, Sir M Visweshwarayya.
