A request to teachers in various institutes in Kerala

Dear Sir/Madam,

We are happy to inform you that the Department of Mathematics of the Sanatana Dharma College, Alappuzha is organizing a two-week long workshop Initiation to Mathematics from 29th April to 11th May 2013 for the undergraduate students. The faculty for this programme will be active mathematicians with a commitment to teaching from various leading institutions. The aim of the programme is not to give routine lectures and presentation of theorem-proofs but to stimulate the participants to think and discover mathematical results.

The selection of candidates will be purely on merit. Selected participants will be given free board and lodging. Their journey expenses will also be met, provided that, they travel in 2nd class/sleeper class train or use some other public transport system.

We request you to display the poster of the programme along with the Frequently Asked Questions attached with this letter prominently on your notice board. We also request you to take steps to personally inform your students about this programme, and ask a few good students to apply. The last date by which the applications should reach us is 10th March 2013. The list of selected participants will also be made available in the website by 15th March 2013. Necessary instructions for the selected participants will also be posted./p>

As you know, any student oriented programme can succeed only with the support of the teachers. Therefore, as a valuable teacher, we request you to be a part of this programme and make it a success by selecting and sending your good students for this programme who can probably provide you moments of pride in the later future.

Unless you, as a teacher, are convinced that there is somespark in the candidate and that the student wishes to pursue a research/teaching career in mathematics, please do not encourage him/her to apply for the programme. Please do not recommend somebody just because he is the top scorer of the class.

For any other information, please get in touch with us by snail or e-mail or dial us or log onto our website.

Thanking you,

Sincerely yours

C P Deepthi (Head, Department of Mathematics, S D College) & Ashok Kumar M G (Programme Co-ordinator)
