KURNOOL: Maths Day was observed at St. Joseph English Medium school here on Wednesday. Senior maths teacher Mohammad Hameed conducted the workshop for children from Class 1 to 3.

Addressing the children, Mr. Hameed said the workshop was meant for eliminating myths and phobia surrounding mathematics. He said mathematics was the easiest subject once the basics were learnt.

Unlike other subjects, mathematics required no rote memory as was required for science and social studies. Once mastered, the students would derive the pleasure of playing games .

He gave various tips, symbols, shortcuts and number games to the students. Workshop coordinator Prameela and others were present.

Mrs. Meena, wife of Collector, visited the workshop as guest of honour.
