    1. Celebration of National Mathematics Week

    Third/ fourth week of December

    Like Every year National Maths week was celebrated on the birth anniversary of Indian Mathematician Ramanujam in all the Government schools of Haryna as per the guidelines shared by Maths Department SCERT. Maths Quiz, Maths Mela, Various competitions and activities such as Maths Rangoli making, and poster making were organized at District and School Levels.

    1. Experiential learning through Mathematics lab practicals

    25.10.2023 to 27.10.2023

    NEP 2020 and NCF SE highlight ‘Mathematics is a form of understanding the world through patterns, measurements, and quantities. Mathematics education also develops capacities for problem-solving, logical reasoning, and computational thinking. However, Mathematics is often disconnected, procedural, and based upon rote memorization. To Promote experiential learning ( as per recommendations of NEP 2020), Maths lab practical are being developed for students of grades IX to XII to make mathematics more engaging, and connected and for the development of problem-solving, reasoning, logical thinking, and visualization capacities.

    1. Visit to Mirambika, A progressive school based on Aurobindo Philosophy


    A day visit was organized to the Mirambika Research Centre for Integral Education and Human Values, situated at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram Campus, New Delhi.  It was a team of around 15 members consisting of teachers from the schools, BRPs, ABRCs, and officials from the council. The purpose of the visit was to understand and witness the existing practices based on Indian philosophies on holistic development, active learning, and student-centered pedagogies by nurturing progressive and alternate education approaches.

    1. Puzzle Corner- Har ghar , har gali, bujho paheli

    Weekly Puzzles 

    All schools are instructed to create puzzle corners and display at least one puzzle or challenge in the puzzle corner every week. Incorporating puzzles, problems, and riddles in the school environment can have numerous benefits. Research has shown that engaging in such activities can develop better thinking strategies, as highlighted in the biographies of many renowned scientists and mathematicians. Furthermore, the recently implemented National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 also emphasizes promoting local culture and Indian roots and incorporating local puzzles can align with this objective. NEP 2020 recommends the importance of mathematical thinking and promotes the regular use of puzzles and games that make mathematical thinking more enjoyable and engaging.

    1. Monthly Discussion series on Puzzles and Games

    Third / Fourth week of each month

    To implement the processes and game, toy, and puzzle-based pedagogy (as recommended by NEP 2020 and NCF SE, 2023), each month, discussions on a specific game puzzle, or toy are being conducted on how to integrate it with the pedagogical processes in mathematics.


    1. Math’s e-Newsletter- Monthly (2022-23) and quarterly (2023 onwards …)


    To inspire, educate, and empower teachers of mathematics, transforming the latest research on math learning into accessible and practical forms, related material, messages, and experiences must be shared in the field regularly. Further, NEP 2020 highlights the importance of Problem-solving ability, Mathsticks publishes challenging tasks and puzzles for teachers and students of all levels. It also provides research-based inputs in accessible forms for teachers to implement in their teaching-learning process.

    1. Power of mistakes


    NEP 2020 envisions children learning how to learn.  Mistakes are powerful tools to know about students’ thinking and hence to develop Mathematics teacher noticing, a research area that examines how teachers pay attention to and make sense of their students’ mathematical thinking. The math department has initiated a project on creating a compendium on common mistakes and developing professional noticing of teachers and students in this regard.
