Ganita vs formal math

Sunday, June 16th, 2019

My first “official” seminar at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla, introducing the topic of my research project as a Tagore Fellow.

Ganita vs formal math: re-examining mathematics, its pedagogy, and the implications for science.

Here is the extended abstract, and the official tweet from the Director (seated, extreme left). (Will get a better photo.)
