Career in Mathematics

India has a long and ancient mathematical tradition. The Sulvasutras, Vedic texts for the construction of ritual altars, contain a lot of geometrical results and constructions. These include a statement of the Pythagoras Theorem, an approximation to the value of ‘pi', and the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. India gave the world the decimal place value system, the modern way of writing numbers, and above all, the number ‘zero.' It boasts of mathematical schools like those of Aryabhata and Bhaskara. Much later, in the 15th century, came the flourishing School of Madhava in Kerala, which

The Impact of Social Media on Student Life

Today’s world is a global village. Everyone is connected to one another in this vast network generated by the Internet. As said by a philosopher of communication theory, “The new electronic independence re-creates the world in the image of a global village.” This electronic independence is inherently dependent upon the Internet.

How Students Should Prioritise Their Workload

Despite what you might expect, course material is certainly not the most difficult part of school. Taken individually; the concepts, reading, papers, assignments, and tests are fairly straightforward. Of course, some subjects are more difficult than others, just as some tests require more preparation than others. But the true challenge that students face is time.

If one could invest an endless amount of time in every academic task, university would be easy. But because they can’t, because deadlines and due

Implication of Digital India on Education

Speaking at the SAARC Summit in Nepal last November, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that “information technology has removed all barriers to quality education”. With the launch of Digital India, state governments and education practitioners have become increasingly interested in the potential of technology to address low learning levels in primary schools.

Behind Modi’s assertion is a theory that technology can solve fundamental problems with India’s education system. Digital India, Modi’s Rs 1 lakh crore schemes, seeks to provide free broadband Wi-Fi in all schools. But before promoting technology as the next big solution, decision-makers should consider how existing research

Importance of Education in Society

Education is not all about studying and getting good marks. It is really a means to discover new things which we don't know about and increase our knowledge. An educated person has the ability to differentiate between right and wrong or good and evil. It is the foremost responsibility of a society to educate its citizens.
