The Mental Maths Project was started as a pilot project for classes IV and V in Sarvodaya Schools of District South in the year 2004-05 and was later extended to classes VI and X in all Govt. schools of Delhi. The activity is meant to enhance and sharpen the calculation skills. Mental Maths Quiz aims at removing Maths phobia from the minds of students. Mental Maths Quiz is held at School, Cluster, Zonal, District, Region and State level. As Mental Maths has been introduced in all schools of Directorate of Education, it was included in the course content of INSET Programmes organised by SCERT/ DIETs. Teachers were given orientation irrespective of their subject area. It has been felt essential that DIET trainees be induced to the activity. Mental Maths Quiz is being organised as Inter House activity.

Orientation-cum-workshops on following themes
Problems of Children
Math phobia, or the fear of Mathematics is very common. We are not aware of any other academic subject in elementary school that instills the same degree of dislike, disinterest and fear as Mathematics does. This is why we need to ask: how can we remove Math phobia? During a survey on Maths teachers while reflecting on their childhood experiences with Maths they said that they did not like the subject because of rote learning, lack of learning activities and unattractive teaching methods. Many people suggest that Mathematics should be taught through experiments in a laboratory.

(3)Title: Ganit mein Khel ya Khel mein GanitMathematics is considered as tough, dry and uninteresting subject by most of the teachers and students. It has been felt that a sourcebook for primary teachers will be helpful in making the classroom teaching easy to comprehend, activity based, joyful, and interesting. This source book will also encourage students for self-study. Material will be identified separately for primary and upper primary classes. The material will be tried out in five schools in District New Delhi. After language editing revised material will be published for use of primary teachers under the jurisdiction of DIET R. K. Puram and Teacher Trainees of all DIETs in Delhi.Budget: Rs. 50,000/- included in Material Development Projects

(5) Title: Development of Maths KitAs on date there is no Maths Kit available either with NCERT or SCERT Delhi. DIET trainees prepare TLM during School Experience Programme as well as part of assignments in Teaching of Mathematics. They also prepare write ups for their use. Five-day workshops will be organized for ETE trainees as well as school teachers separately for Development and Use of TLM. It is proposed to develop a prototype Kit by involving trainees and working teachers, trying out the material in say 10 schools, revising and displaying the material along with the User manual. After receiving orders from schools, kit can be multiplied with the support of professionals. It will be priced and will bring income to SCERT. Total budget: 1, 20,000/- only
Sensitizing Teachers about the Social Problems of ChildrenChildren in the school come from various psychosocial environments. The social context of a classroom situation of any school presents a number of challenges, which must be addressed by the teacher. The role of teachers is to provide a safe space for children to express themselves and simultaneously to build in certain forms of interactions. They need to step out of the role of ‘moral authority’ and learn to listen with empathy and without judgment, and to enable children to listen to each other. While consolidating and constructively stretching the limits of the learner’s understanding they need to be conscious of how differences are expressed. Therefore it is proposed to organize a workshop for teachers to sensitize teachers about the Social Problems of Children to develop child friendly atmosphere in the classroom.
Methodology:Programme will be carried out in a participatory mode, which will give space for Presentation of case studies, Discussion on the need of building a fear free learning environment, Interactive session on the influence of unidentified and unanswered socio-emotional problems on learning achievements of the children, Provision of guided and structured group work4 programmes, each of 3 days duration will be organized.Total: Rs. 57,000/-
