About National Mathematics Day
HISTORY
National Mathematics Day is celebrated on 22 December every year to mark the birth anniversary of legendary Indian mathematician, Srinivasa Ramanujan and his contributions in the field of mathematics.
On 22 December 2012, the former Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh, paid tribute to Srinivasa Ramanujan at a function organised on the occasion of the 125th birth anniversary of the great mathematician Srinivasa Iyengar Ramanujan in Chennai. 22 December was declared as National Mathematics Day. Thus, on 22 December 2012, National Mathematics Day was celebrated across the country for the first time.
Contributions of Ramanujan in Mathematics
Ramanujan’s genius has been regarded by mathematicians to be at par with Euler and Jacobi from the 18th and 19th centuries, respectively. His work in the number theory is especially regarded, and he made advances in the partition function. Ramanujan was recognised for his mastery of continued fractions, and had worked out the Riemann series, elliptic integrals, hypergeometric series, and the functional equations of the zeta function. After his death, Ramanujan left behind three notebooks and some pages containing unpublished results, on which mathematicians continued to work on for many years.
The Dev Patelstarrer ‘The Man Who Knew Infinity’ (2015) was a biopic on the mathematician.

Mizoram Science, Technology & Innovation Council (MISTIC) and Mizoram Mathematics Society (MMS) jointly organized celebration of National Mathematics Day 2019 on the 20 December, 2019 at ATI Auditorium, MINECO, Khatla.

In this occasion, praising the initiative of MISTIC & MMS, the Chief Guest said that the way Mizo people perceived Mathematics as an abstruse and tedious have been gradually changed into an interesting and engrossing subject. He said that students in this generation are very fortunate that they have the privilege of living in the socalled computer age, they have been surrounded by highly sophisticated computer applications and internet. Hundreds of online learning applications and videos could be found in the internet and he instigated the students to try to learn and to utilize to the maximum extent these technological advancement in their studies.
In relation to the celebration of NMD, State Level Mathematics Competition was organized for class – 5, 8, 10 and 12 standards. Mr. H.
