“Pure Mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.”
Math is forever an integrated part of life and is also known as the mother of all sciences. Through an array of various programmes and competitions CPS celebrated Math day on 9th July 2014 with gusto. All the classes 0f Primary, Secondary and Senior Secondary were involved in a variety of activities.
Students participated as groups or individuals with great enthusiasm. The “Treasure Hunt” in the senior group which witnessed the maximum participation was the most interesting part of the activities.The other competitions included were jewellery making, collage, origami, quilling, math salad or vegetable carving, mathematical lanterns, mask making, math in art, puzzle corner, etc. The poetry on math by students of Std VI and VII revealed their creativity and numerical ability. Students also enacted role play on application of mathematics in day to day life. They proved their fascination for numbers in the quiz in various rounds.
It was indeed a learning experience for students as they were exposed to fun loving hands on experience.
Class 4 students were involved in kite making – origami activity; It was amazing to see the variety of kites made by the children. They also conducted a special assembly wherein students spoke on a variety of topics and spread the knowledge of Mathematics in Integration with other fields. Some of the topics were “Origin and history of number system”, “Telling time and emergence of clock”, “History of calendars and its types”, “Math and money”, “Math in solar system”, “Math in cricket”, “and Math in national flag” and so on.

It was definitely a memorable occasion filled with fun, excitement and challenge.
“Food should be enjoyed rather than endured”
As a part of our activity oriented way of learning i.e.: learning by doing for class 5 students ‘Cooking without fire’, and Class 4 students ‘Food Festival” were held on the 5th and 6th August 2014.
