"Mathematics is the language in which God has written the Universe."
This famous quote pertinently sums up the importance of mathematics in life. Indians, particularly, have always been credited with introducing superb mathematical breakthroughs like the invention of the digit zero and the number system as well as the famed Shreedharacharya formula. Albert Einstein once said , "We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to convert, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery would have been made."
At CMS various international events and fests are organized to promote cross cultural interaction and give the future generations, a unique way to interact and share knowledge.
In order to share our global views and develop the power and capacities latent in the youth of today, and to motivate them to contribute their share to an ever - advancing civilization, CMS is organizing the 8th International Young Mathematicians' Convention, 2018, an international Mathematics Contest that seeks to give mathematical expression to the inner creative urges of the youth.
The tradition of organizing events and fairs related to mathematics started in the Gomti Nagar Campus with the 4th International World Youth Mathematics Intercity Competition (IWYMIC) held in the year 2002.
After this CMS Gomti Nagar took this event to the next level and organized it as an international event, the IYMC which took its root from IWYMC. The 1st IYMC was held in December 2004. The event saw the active participation of various international teams from Philippines, Bangkok, Pakistan, China, Taiwan, England thus making it truly a unique cross cultural bonanza.
2nd, 3rd, 4th , 5th & 6th IYMC held in 2006. 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014 & 2016 respectively with participation of 12-16 countries, were also a grand success.
The Eighth IYMC - 2018 is scheduled from the 2nd to the 5th December 2018. The competition will have events like 1. Solve-a-thon (Relay Round ) 2.Bingo (Mathematical Quiz ) 3. Dexter's Math-a-torium (Mathematical Fair ) 4. Math Wiz (Individual Contest) 5.Mathmania (Team Activity Contest ) 6. Numeric Jazz (Math Jingle) 7. Calculatia (Mental Calculations).
In this contest, students from a number of countries will participate in different events including cultural night. (NOT TO BE A PART OF COMPETITION)
