“ MATHEMATICS is not about numbers , equations , computations and algorithms : it is about UNDERSTANDING” William Paul Thurston.

A little competition can inspire math students to greater achievement. It challenges students to use their math skills in new and creative ways. It also provides a challenging and engaging mathematical experience [that] is both competitive and educational.
As a part of extended learning Maths Quiz was conducted in our school on 28/9/2017. Students of all houses from Grade 2 to Grade 9 participated in the Quiz. Each house was divided into 5 sections- Section 1 & 2 was conducted by T. Amrapali, Section 3, 4 & 5 was conducted by T. Sibi .

There were three rounds –Joy in Mathematics, Flex your Brain, Mathematical terms. Every question carried one mark each and there were time constraints for each round. The Main objective of the quiz was to encourage children to look beyond their textual knowledge and relieve the tension of their daily work routine. Children had a good team spirit wherein “small to big” all students were busy and giving tough fight to make their team win.
