Many school students even today express displeasure to learn math viewing it as dull and boring and lacking in application. To them math means either to get something right or wrong. When they get it wrong they view it as a failure and lose interest while there are other students who learn enough tricks to get through or score high in a math exam.
The setting up of a Maths Lab takes this matter head on. It is a place for students to discover mathematics by doing. Appealing activities for a wide range of students with varying proficiency are introduced with the goal of generating further interest. These in turn help students to visualize, manipulate and reason. They provide opportunity to make conjectures and generalize observed patterns. Although math is not an experimental subject like physics, chemistry or biology a mathematical laboratory immensely contributes to the learning of mathematical concepts and skills.
