                          POSTER MAKING ACTIVITY

                          TOPIC: SYMMETRY IN NATURE

                          CLASS VIII

                          Many mathematical principles are based on ideals, and apply to an abstract, perfect world. This perfect world of mathematics is reflected in the imperfect world, such as in the approximate symmetry of a face divided by an axis along the nose. More symmetrical faces are generally regarded as more aesthetically pleasing. Not only in faces but “Symmetry “ is found everywhere in nature and is also one of the most prevalent themes in art, architecture, and design — in cultures all over the world and throughout human history. Symmetry is certainly one of the most powerful and pervasive concepts in mathematics.

                          In order to make the students realize more importance of ‘Symmetry in Nature’ and to harness their maximum creativity regarding the topic, Mathematics Department conducted a ‘POSTER MAKING ACTIVITY’  on the topic “ SYMMETRY IN NATURE “  for class 8th during the zero period. Students showed great enthusiasm and really enjoyed learning Math with the help of colourful activity. They  made very beautiful and expressive posters. The astonishing posters made by the students very well expressed the theme of the Activity.
