Registrations closes at 15 students per batch in Borivali and 20 students in Nerul.

About the workshop

Right from computation to the programming in an electronic washing machine, from everyday morning chores to process design in a corporate, from the local bhelpuri wala making bhelpuri to reserving seats in a train or flight; everywhere it’s the play of algorithms. What are algorithms? Algorithms are a step-by-step foolproof processes of doing things which involves using logical and mathematical thinking. Most of us follow algorithms naturally in our daily life, but seldom do we design algorithms which can improve efficiency of a task.
In this 4-day workshop on Algorithm Design, the focus will be on helping children design such algorithms for various real-life situations where we deal with optimisation problems using Combinatorics. This topic forms a vital topic in Computer Science but the building blocks can be set quite early.

*Benefits*: A good algorithm improves efficiency, management of resources, reduces errors and bugs in the work and creates a wonderful system that can work on it’s own. If a child can learn to create algorithms at an early age, he will be able to become more efficient in doing his tasks.
*Suitable for*: The workshop is designed for students of 10-13 years of age.

Day 1 | Mathematics Explorers

Vinay R.Nair's Blog

28th March 2015

We start off with a small group of 7 children (aged between 4 to 8 years) and their parents for an explorative approach to discover mathematics through activities and games. The session was meant for parents to observe and see how a child learns. Mathematics Explorers is what I would like to name the group as.

Counting

A certain number of tamarind seeds were given to every parent and they were asked to count them. Most counted one by one, a parent picked up random number of seeds like three or four at a time and kept adding; another parent made groups of three and multiplied the certain number of groups to get the result. The art of counting is very important and it is very difficult to get most children master counting after a certain age. The younger they start, the better they master it.

Simpli5 – a Maths camp near Pune

Simpli5 is a 5-day residential camp near Pune on Magic Squares.

Magic Squares is one of the most interesting topics in the history of Mathematics for the young and old. Among different civilisations, Indians were the ones who had contributed to a great extent to the subject. During this 5-day residential camp ‘Simpli5’ we will be taking a peep into the history and a peek into the future where this topic from recreational mathematics can be applied in areas like Cryptography and Computer Programming. Ancient coding systems like Katapayadi and Bhuta Sankhya would also be discussed which will help decipher various Sanskrit cryptic verses.

Come, unveil the mystery behind Magic Squares! For more details and registrations, click on the below flyer.

Vedic Mathrix 2016

25th to 29th April 2016

Vedic Mathrix 2016 is the annual residential camp on Indian mathematics conducted by Chinmaya International Foundation and School of Vedic Maths.

The camp aims at creating a deeper understanding of Mathematics and taking the participants through a tour of deeper-level numerical and geometrical aspects of number system, triangles, quadrilaterals, ancient yantras and so on along with geometric-algebra, history and development of mathematics. Five days of the camp will be filled with fun and stress-free learning of Mathematics through classroom sessions, group discussions and indoor & outdoor activities / games. The serene environment of Chinmaya International Foundation gives a different experience of learning.
