“MATHEMATICS is not about numbers, equations, computations and algorithms: it is about UNDERSTANDING”
-William Paul Thurston
Maths quiz is a brief assessment used in education to measure growth in knowledge abilities, and skills. It helps to enhance the interest in the students towards the subject and also creates a conductive environment to work in groups outside the classroom.
A small 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, Mental Maths Quiz was organized by Department of Mathematics in the school on 26 May 2022. Students of all houses from grade 6 to grade 10 participated in the Quiz. Experience says learning mathematics can be made easier and enjoyable if our curriculum includes mathematical activities and games. Maths Quiz encourages, attracts, alerts and brings in an open-minded attitude among youngsters which helps them to develop clarity in their thinking.
