At Right Angles | March 2018

Azim Premji University,


Volume 7 Issue 1: This issue of AtRiA welcomes you to the Math Village. Where house numbers, rangoli patterns, piles of fruit and even a child’s amusement device speaks to the instictive mathematician in each of us.

Read about these in Triangular Numbers in Features and the House Number Problem in ClassRoom. Appropriately, many of these problems were prompted by Ramanujan in his village. The Review is of a book which was used to teach a pre-course at the School of Arts and Sciences, Azim Premji University and it syncs perfectly with the theme of finding mathematics in the most unexpected places.

Hone up on how to create a Conjecturing ClassRoom or generate Elementary Cellular Automata! Misconceptions in Fractions and an analysis of common errors in Algebra give an insight into students’ struggles with mathematics and the PullOut, too, focuses on Algebra and how to make a seamless move from Arithmetic to Algebra.
