Mathematics directs the flow of the universe, lurks behind its shapes and curves and holds the reins of everything from tiny atoms, to the biggest stars…….
Mathematics is an indispensable subject of study. It plays an important role in forming the basis of all other sciences which deal with the material substance of space and time. The underpinnings of everyday life such as making purchases, choosing insurance or health plans all require mathematical competence. Go down deep enough into anything and you will find mathematics. The pulse of the earth is mathematics. It is all about logical analysis, deductions, and calculations. Mathematics has a pervasive influence on our everyday lives and contributes to the wealth of the country.
Thus to explore further the realm of Mathematics, I cordially invite you to IYMC-Mathematica, the 8th International Young Mathematicians' Convention scheduled from the 2nd to 5th December 2018.
Mathematics has a most important bearing on the intellect. Thus IYMC-Mathematica 2016 has been conceived to satisfy a wide range of interests and abilities. It strives to promote habits of accuracy and exactitude. It endeavours to sharpen your reasoning power and increase mental alertness. IYMC is a challenge with varieties of difficult and unsolved problems. Yet it also has a continuing drive to simplification, to finding the right concepts and methods to make difficult things easy and to explain why a situation must be as it is.
The overwhelming success of IYMC in the previous years has inspired us to go a step further. This year we have introduced some new and very interesting competitions. Moreover keeping in tune with the ideology, "Catch them Young and Watch them Grow", IYMC 2018 invites participation even at the Primary Level (i.e. 10-13years of age), apart from the middle school and senior level. It will be our privilege to play host to you and provide boarding, lodging and local conveyance to all outstation teams.
Let Mathematics bring us closer. Let Mathematics be the catalyst to kindle life long friendships.
Mrs. Abha Anant
Principal & Convener,
IYMC- Mathematica 2018.
