The Mathematics laboratory is a place where children can experiment and explore patterns and ideas. At Chinmaya Vidyalaya, Vaduthala, the Maths lab provides an opportunity for the students to discover and learn mathematics through doing. Here we have a collection of games, puzzles and other teaching and learning materials. It is used by both students and teachers to explore and develop an interest in Mathematics. The activities are done both in Maths Lab and in Classrooms to give children an experience of doing Mathematics.
