The Department of Mathematics has been conducting a “Mathematics exhibition” open to our College students of all disciplines to improve their understanding and to add a fun element in the learning process. Our students consider the exhibition to be useful as it fosters their Science and Technology attitudes. We strongly believe that even this short informal learning intervention through small visualizations, puzzles and shapes, affects their Science and Technology attitudes and educational plans.
