It was the 29th of August 2018. A lecture was conducted by Dr. Debabrata Nag on “School Mathematics and Career”, in our school campus.
Dr. Debabrata Nag is a professor of the Mechanical Engineering Department of Jadavpur University. He is also a mathematician at heart and was kind enough to visit our school to deliver a speech on The Impact of Mathematics on our Career.
The enriching session started early morning in school with his introduction. Right after that he plunged straight into mathematics. The main focus was on the tricks to solve problems and time management during exams.
From the basic number system to Pythagoras’ theorem and trigonometry Dr. Nag covered everything in his lecture. Some of the problems he introduced were exceptionally difficult yet very interesting. For competitive exams like JEE, CAT and the like Dr. Nag told us to change our perspective and delve into the soul of the problem.
In a way he successfully brushed up our basics as well as taught us something new. At the end of the session he cleared our doubts and showed us many new ways of solving problems.
It was a real pleasure to have Dr. Nag with us in school. We all benefitted a lot from this session.
