For Students facing difficulties with addition, multiplication and algebraic equations, there is something to cheer about. The Delhi government is launching a special training programme in schools to help pupils work out mathematical problems without resorting to pen and paper.

From the academic session in June, Delhi government-run schools will introduce 'Mind Math' as part of academic activity for students of Class VI and X. The Academic Support Group (ASG), set up by the Education Department to recommend educational reforms, had suggested the idea.

This was accepted by the government. "This would help them perform better in competitive examinations," ASG chairman Prof BN Bajpai said. Besides, a quiz competition Mind Math Quiz would be organised at various levels. The winner would be honoured with a prize as well as a scholarship.

The equation
• Mind Math for students of Class VI and X from June in Delhi Govt schools
• Questions on decimal, fractions, percentage ready
• Math teachers in 950 schools to use these questions and orient students to
answer them in 20 seconds
