MATHEMATICS LABORATORY
 
Mathematics Laboratory is a place where students canlearn and explore mathematical concepts and verifymathematical facts and theorems through a variety of activities using different materials.These activities maybe carried out by the teacher or the student toexplore, to learn, to stimulate interest and developfavourable attitude towards mathematics.Laboratory in Mathematics is the brain childof 
Mr.Sreedhara Chandra Sekhara Sastry
, acreative mathematician. The Maths Lab consists of more than 200 models in various branchers of mathslike Algebra, Geometry, Arithmetics,etc. which are of great help to students from K.G to 12
th
.The models areso designed to catter to the needs of all segments of teachers and learners in verifying formulae results and
 
applications etc., irrespective of curriculum.
Maths lab is being designed anddeveloped for the followingschools. 
 
Sri Chandra Sekhara Sastry Garu is considered to be a pioneer in the field of mathematicaleducation. He published several mathematical books, some alone and some with hisstudents. He is an architect of mathematics laboratories. His great mathematicalinnovative models are finding applications in many fields today. Recently he wasconferred with 'Innovative Teacher' award by AMTI, Chennai for this great works andcontribution for the development of mathematics education.( 
).Recently sastry garu participated in CoSMED 2009 (International Conference on Scienceand Mathematics Education) Penang, Malaysia. There he represented India and Presentedfew papers. For this he got accolades from the International fraternity. It is a rareopportunity that one gets. In that seminar, he could able to present that Indian standardsare high and made the country proud.( 
). He is an exemplary to all thegenerations. He proved that there are no short cuts to success. He remarked thatunwavering effort, perseverance and undoubted self confidence are the only pillars forsuccess.
Do your students
rejoice
mathematics or are
phobic
to it?
 
"The essence of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated but to make complicated things simple."
 
The learning styles of the children is not the same universally. Some learn by Text book and
 
blackboard
method whereas many don’t. This turns children disinterested and even phobic
 
towards learning especially, mathematics. This issue is well addressed in the recent Hindi hitmovie "Tare Zameen Par".
When children’s body is arrested in desk and bench for hou
rs and mind is caged in thetextbook and blackboard, the result is - what it is today. The blatant truth is many a students
don’t enjoy mathematics whereas there future and career is dependent so much on doing well
in this subject.Touched by the dismay of the struggle of the children, I took up a research for a more
 
interesting way of learning that can suit learning styles of most of the children and not just the
 
so called toppers. Consequently, here comes the solution :
"Mathematics Lab"
 
The children rejoice mathematics rather than turning into phobic. This gives all the freedom toa child to use the 3d Mathematics Model to explore, experiment and understand mathematical
concepts through activities. They don’t just learn but experience how
a formulae derived by
 
physically manipulating the learning material.
 
This has evolved out of 15 years of valuable experience of teaching, conducting workshops anda wide research in pedagogy, all over India. Activities like students workshops, Mothers
 
wo
rkshops, Ganitawadhanam have rewarded me an “INNOVATIVE TEACHER AWARDEE” and
 
have written scored of books on mathematics.This well researched and well tried lab has got churned out as a soothing solution to thedifficult experiences of the students, teachers and the managements of the caring schools.Theteachers find it convenient to explain many a difficult topics. The management finds it a handytool project the image of their infrastructure with the presence of Mathematics Lab in theschool. Because all the schools and parents with a futuristic vision have started acquiring the
 “Mathematics Lab” , so don’t lag behind. Moreover the boards are working towards making
mathematics lab mandatory along with marks for internal assessment, so gear up for the
 
future.
Please visit my web site “www.mathslabscs.com” For further details of the lab and the webbased as well personal support to implement it effectively.Sure you won’t let down and deprive
the students of your school form the lifetime experience of enjoying mathematics in yourschool with the "Mathematics Approach" learning.
Children will thank you for this forever because
"Mathematics is like a poetry of logicalideas."
S.Chandra Sekhara Sastry.
