MS Khilora Government School has 107 students in classes VI to VIII and a somewhat equal gender distribution. Baring a few, students mostly come from the neighbouring farmer community.

An interesting extract from Ramanujan’s notebooks which makes for a great classroom exercise in geometry, with a dash of algebra thrown in. An enterprising teacher could do this proof in stages — starting from showing students the figure and asking them to prove the theorem; if they can’t, providing them with enough scaffolding to help them complete the proof.

Here are other links, suggested by Rajkishore from APF, that can be referred to as well (Click on the image):

In Part I of this article we presented a few methods for generating Primitive Pythagorean Triples (PPTs). You will recall that they were all ‘piece meal’ in character. Now we present two more approaches which offer complete solutions to the PPT problem. Both are based on straightforward reasoning and simple algebra. And no PPT is left out: we capture the complete family in each case.
