One-day university level mathematics practical workshop, organised by MMK and SDM Colleges, was held in the city on Saturday.
Joint Director of collegiate education Morabada Mallikarjuna inaugurated the workshop. Addressing the gathering, he said, “Everyone has fear towards Mathematics as a subject and I too had the same feeling towards it which made me to opt for the art stream rather than science. Mathematics is not just about addition, subtraction, multiplication or division, it is a subject that understands the sensitivity of our life. It plays a significant role in reckoning of our life. If we closely look at the mathematics it attracts us and teaches us the lesson of our life.”
“Our every day activity deals with mathematics and everything in this world links with the subject and helps us to evaluate ourselves,” he added.
Delivering the presidential address, Principal Prof K V Damodara Gowda said, “A teacher needs to reach the hearts of the students through the lesson he teaches. Mthematics is one such subject that can attract students. Today there is necessity to introduce uniform pattern at all the colleges which needs attention. This workshop provides a platform for teachers and students to inculcate mathematics not just theoretically but also practically by interacting with eminent resource persons.”
Head of department of Mathematics S Lakshmi Shastry, Principal of PUC M V Asha and others were present.
