Team Udayavani, Dec 22, 2020, 11:20 AM IST

National Mathematics Day is celebrated every year on December 22 across the nation to recognise and celebrate the works of Srinivasa Ramanujan.

He was born in Erode in 1887   and went on to become a world renowned mathematician. At the age of 11, he could do advance mathematics taught at college level. He was then introduced to trigonometry and by age 13 he was a master in the subject.

In 1904, he graduated from Town Higher Secondary School and was awarded the K. Ranganatha Rao prize for mathematics by the school’s headmaster, Krishnaswami Iyer.

As reported by TOI, Ramanujan was one of the youngest members of Britain’s Royal Society and the first Indian to be elected a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge University.

His contribution to mathematical analysis, infinite series, continued fractions and number theory was immense. Ramanujan is most popular for his contribution in analytical theory of numbers, elliptic functions, continued fractions, and infinite series.

According to India today, It was first observed in 2012 when former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh declared this day as National Mathematics Day on February 26, 2012

Since then, it is observed every year on December 22 to honour Ramanujan’s work in the field of mathematics.
