Indian mathematicians made great strides in developing arithmetic, algebra, geometry, infinite series expansions, and calculus, however, unfortunately, the students today do not know even about the famous names, rues the professor. The students need to be made aware of the contribution of Aryabhata in place value number system, the geometrical concepts given by Brahmagupta, the fundamental work of Bhaskaracharya on arithmetic, LCM of given numbers in Ganita-Sara-sangraha of Mahaviracharya, Ramanujan’s extraordinary contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series and continued fractions, she added.
