mathematical problems, where
students feel confident in failing,
in order to try again; a place
where students become
transformed by exercising their

Lack of practice?
“I hear and I forget.
I see and I remember.
I do and I understand.”
1. Recognize you have an aversion to math, whether it's full-blown math phobia
or just a few math blocks
here and there.
2. Make a conscious decision to do something about it.
3. Give yourself a regular math workout, however small to start with.
You'll find it all gets easier, and you'll soon enjoy math once again.

INDIAN GENIUS
WHY GO SO FAR? STORY OF THE SON OF OUR OWN
SOIL SIR RAMANUJAN
Who was Srinivasa Ramanujan?
A famous Indian mathematician
1729?
who lived from 1887 to 1920.
The theory of numbers brought
worldwide fame to Ramanujan.
Some of us here know Sir
Ramanujan worked at Cambridge
University
with
the
great
mathematician, G.H. Hardy.His
birth centenary was celebrated
in1987.

Story time
• Once the inspector visited the school. He entered the 4th std.
class where his favorite subject was being tought.He posed
a small question to the children. He asked them the sum of
first 100 counting numbers.. All the children got busy to find
the answer. Some started writing in the notebook,some
started counting fingers. One little boy on the last bench was
sitting very quietly watching the rest of the children.
Inspectors always have a bad habit of catching the back
benchers as during inspection teachers make the dull
children sit at the back. So he asked the child ,”sweetheart,
why don’t you want to give It a try?” Pat came the reply, sir,
it's not a big deal. Answer is 5050. Inspector was very
impressed with the child & asked him to explain. Child
confidently replied ,sir ,if one adds two numbers at the
extreme, every time one gets a total of 101.
• (as 100+1;99+2,------50+51) One gets 50 such pairs. Hence
the answer is 101x50=5050. Inspector knew that one day
this child prodigy is going to be a high achiever in life. Yes,
his prophecy was true. Till the date we know him as Sir
Ramanujan.

FATHER OF ALGEBRA
Linear equations
The riddle begins, “Diophantus ” youth lasted 1/6 of his life.
He grew a beard
after 1/12 more
after 1/7 more of his life he
married
5 years later he
had a son
ALGEBRA SOLVES A RIDDLE
Little is known about the life of
Diophantus the Greek father of algebra,
except his age at death, which has been
preserved in the famous 1,500-year-old
riddle shown here. If we assume ‘x’ as
his age at the time of death then we get
the equation
The son lived exactly ½ as long as his father. And Diophantus
died just 4 years after his son.
All this adds up to
the years
Diophantus lived
x = x/6 + x/12 + x/7 + 5 + x/2 + 4,
which reduces to 3x/28 = 9 telling us
27
Diophantus was 84 years old when he
died.

Achilles, even if by a mere eyelash.

• Let x=2 ; x(x – 1) = 2 ( x – 1) ;x2 - x = 2x -2 ;
x2 – x –x = 2x – 2 – x ; x2 – 2x = x -2 ;
x (x – 2 ) = x – 2 ; x =1
But x= 2 hence 2 = 1

This rectangle is the most harmonious & pleasing to the

THEORY OF CONVERGENCE
• (using a shrinking ruler to measure the
unmeasurable)
• A fundamental concept of calculus is ‘convergence of
limit’. The idea that an unknown value can be measured
by ”closing in “through approximations that are made
finer & finer until they are refined, in effect to a precise
value.1) the tracks converging on the horizon appear to
join at a particular point, though they actually never
meet.2)Images of a boy holding a mirror photographed in
another mirror, although actually never shrink, but they
appear to be converging on such a small area that it is
considered to be a point.3)The lines AE,AD,AC &AB
show average growth rates for successively smaller
periods of time. But for the instant A ,the growth rate is
shown by the tangent at A.

The great Galileo & Isac newton : Gravitational force
g=32ft/sec
A parachuter in free fall
drops
faster
every
monent.Calculus finds
his rate at any instant
by in effect, measuring
shorter & shorter time
segments.In the first
bracketed period he
falls at an average
speed of 88ft/sec for
half a sec.In the next
equal period 104 feet.In
two shorter periods he
drops 94.4 ft per sec &
97.6
ft.The
ever
narrowing range finally
converge to 96 ft/sec at
exactly 3 sec.
Timing an object as it falls
from a given height is the
most straight forward
method of gauging the
efects of gravity.It was this
technique which Galileo
used about 1585 to arrive at
his free fall eqn.y=16t2 ;y
representing the distance
fallen in ft. and t the elapsed
time I sec. after the first fall.
Newton further proved that
it is law of nature that every
free falling object falls to
earth with a constant
acceleration of 32ft /sec
every sec.

overpowered him.1729 is the
famous taxi no.which is often
mentioned in narrating his love
for nos.While in the U.K. Prof.
Hardy visited him in the
hospital as Ramanujan was
lying ill.Hardy mentioned the
no.of the taxi in which he
came.At once Ramanujan
gave out the property of 1729
as the smallest no.that can be
expressed as a sum of two
cubes in two different
ways.This theory later helped
immensly in solving
indeterminate eqns.
