The only way to learn Mathematics is to do Mathematics. – Paul Halmos
Mathematics can be intimidating with seemingly unintelligible symbols and notations. NPS HSR makes learning Mathematics fun. We believe that children need o first make sense of the world around them and develop number sense and spatial sense before they can successfully grasp the concepts of Mathematics. It is with this idea that NPS HSR initiated its Math lab facility where learning Mathematics takes place through activities. The Math Lab helps in developing the habits of critical thinking and logical reasoning. Complex theoretical concepts become clear because concepts go hand-in-hand with practical implementation. The Math Lab kindles interest in learning Mathematics because theoretical knowledge can be related to students’ activities in everyday life.
