Learning material for the Golden Ratio

Everyone can learn and enjoy mathematics if its concepts and objectives are explained clearly. In this project, an attempt was made to understand the causes of mathematical anxiety and the present scenario of school education in India as well as Information and communication technologies in education (ICT’s) were studied. The insights derived for effective learning methodologies were then applied in teaching the concept of Golden Ratio to the students in secondary level education. A few learning tools, student manual, posters, hand book for the teachers and iPad application were designed to explain and understand the GOLDEN RATIO and FIBONACCI NUMBERS in mathematics through graphic design.

Providing alternative irrigation options to them that minimize water wastage will automatically help in bringing down salinity related issues.
