Telangana Class 8 Maths Syllabus

In India Mathematics has its own rich tradition. The Vedic Maths has been discovered by great Indian Scholars and mathematicians of India. All of you must be knowing the Srinivasa Ramanujan. He is a genius mathematician who invented the infinity and has also done various research in maths.

To keep that enthusiasm awaken, mathematics is being taught to students of class 1 to 10 as a mandatory subject across all state boards in India. Who knows that one day you may become genius like Ramanujan and contribute to the various new theories in the field of mathematics.
