"Mathematics is the knowledge with which God has written the universe" - Galileo.

The importance of Mathematics has never been greater than now and for the foreseeable future. Mathematical skills are crucial for a wide array of analytical, technological, scientific, economic and soft skill applications. Training students to become adept users of Mathematics and to appreciate its usefulness is of paramount importance for the future.

The celebration of GANIT (Growing Aptitude in Numerical and Innovations Training) week , an initiative of CBSE commemorating SrinivasaRamanujan's birth anniversary, had a distinct flavor at D.A.V International School Ahmedabad, when hands came together , showcasing the diverse activities and competitions in numeracy. Students participated in large numbers, displaying spirited enthusiasm, absorbing information and enjoying the stimulating exercise of the mind.

To encourage young learners to get involved, to dispel Math phobia and create a love for the subject, to percieve the connection of mathematical concepts with real life situations, were the primary objectives of the GANIT celebrations that was in perfect sync with the objectives of our very own Zero_Zero Club . The resounding success of the celebrations is the outcome of tireless efforts put in by the resource team comprising of students and Maths Faculty, ably guided by the Math teachers and well supported by the school management.
