Institute for Promotion of Mathematics is a unique Institute working since 1996 for school going children. We, at the Institute, realize and understand that the present education set-up does not give the student enough opportunity to tackle mathematical problems outside the routine path of school examinations. Hence, the Mathematics Scholarship Examination syllabus comprises of thought provoking and challenging topics, thus exposing some fascinating facets of mathematics.
The syllabus strives towards making the generally dreaded Maths Fun and Easy. In the course of time, students learn to analyze problems fast and anticipate results soon. Fast calculations help the students to perform well in school and later on in college too. The question papers are set keeping in mind the competitive exams children face later. The exposure that children are given is very helpful, because when they appear for their 10th std. Exams; the novelty of the state level exam is greatly reduced, which in turn improve performance.
The Institute conducts the All India Open Mathematics Scholarship Examination for Std. III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX and awards Scholarship, Trophies/Mementoes to the top 150/200 students of each standard to honour and inspire them.
