A good Mathematics Teacher can involve his students in a number of co-curricular activities such as Mathematics Club, Mathematics Fair, and Mathematics Laboratory etc. Among them Mathematics Club plays an important role in sustaining interest in learning Mathematics among the students. This helps the students in having an idea of the practical utility of mathematics in addition to creating their interest in Mathematics. It can serve a number of purposes.
