In December, there was a different kind of celebration at RDF Kalleda and RDF VAPV Junior College. To commemorate the birthday of Srinivasa Ramanujan, the school celebrated mathematics day. The day not only emphasized the importance of Ramanujan’s contribution to mathematics but it also involved math based activities for the students. Celebrating this in 2012 was significant, since the year 2012 is declared as the year of Mathematics by the Government of India. As a part of the tribute, the school conducted elocution competition on Ramanujan`s life story, along with mathematics quiz program to develop math skills and utilize math techniques in a practical way.  The students at RDF VAPV JC took part in a test, with S. Navyasree securing first place. The activities were fun, educative and engaging. The day made the subject more appealing and deepened the interest for mathematics within students. To sum up, the celebration was an exponential success!
