Gajera English Medium Primary School, Katargam on 22 Dec 2014 to commemorate the birthday of Shri Srinivasa Ramanujan, the great mathematical genius who made exemplary contribution to Mathematics.

The Mathematics day was celebrated with objective of creating awareness about importance of mathematics in day to day life situation and also to create students interest in studying the Mathematics. As a part of the celebrations Mathematical Fun Puzzles was organized for Std- 1st to 4th while the upper primary learners made TLM (Teaching Learning Materials) for explaining topics of mathematics allotted to them by their mathematics Educator during the class. This engaging activity was enjoyed by the participants as well as the educators. Becoming an educator for explaining a topic in front of class with a TLM prepared by themselves made the learners quite confident.
