5.30PM: The Nagar Map is also a puzzle map. Some of our participants were given one minute to solve the puzzle of a city by placing missing parts and learning the Maths concepts behind those pieces.

5PM: What are they looking at? Actually, they are looking and counting. Yes, each counted number of autos, cars, buses, etc. To do what? Scroll down to see what.

They did the counting to create a graph. And look at the colourful graph this girl has made.

4.40PM: We also got the parents to do some Maths with Raghu. We gave a very special number 43093700000 and asked them to guess what the number is all about. The guesswork was fun but as no guess came quite close to the right answer, we had to reveal what was behind the number. Can you guess? No. Ok, we will tell you. This number is the amount due to BBMP for the year 2012-2013 from various institutions and business set-ups. Like parking fees, property taxes, etc. Now the participants were asked to find the ratio of each of the amount an institution has to pay BBMP with respect to the final sum. Also, using the Bangalore population of 85 lakhs (2011 census), they were asked to work out how much each one of us would have to pay BBMP if the public have to pony up the dues? They estimated that the amount due will be 5070 rupees per person.

We also gave them a small take home activity: They need to estimate the time taken to count this money at the rate of 1000 per second. Can you also do it?

4:30PM: So let’s have a look at the activities, right. Here these kids have been asked to draw any object and discover the Maths concept buried in their drawing. Somebody found the area of a rectangle!

4.20PM: Yay! Our first NumberNagar (NN) pre-launch event has started at Jaaga on Double Road. Today’s NN element is the Nagar Map.

How was Bangalore built? How is it growing?  Do you want to learn some cool Maths concepts from the stories of Namma Bengaluru? Get the Nagar Map. Especially for kids aged 7 – 14.
