Math Week at its Peak!

“Mathematics has beauty and romance. It’s not a boring place to be, the mathematical world. It’s an extraordinary place; it’s worth spending time there.” Marcus du Sautoy, British mathematician

At Beaconhouse Metropolitan-Girls, students of VI, VII, VIII took active part in a week full of activities dedicated purely to Mathematics. These young mathematicians created games like “Spin the Wheel”, “It All Depends on Luck”, “Dunk the Ball”, “Ping Pong Luck”, “Pop the Equation” and many, many more. No one wanted to stay behind in such an electrical mathematical ambience. Students were engaged in collaboratively solving puzzles and competing against each other in activities. Small prizes, handmade badges and certificates turned out to be a cherry on the top.

The venue was no less than a Mathematical Disneyland. Who could have imagined that this subject which is considered by many as an arid one, rather turned out to be quite fun!

Although the event came to an end, yet students seemed happier, more confident and more enlightened in the subject they usually dread about.

The American mathematicianStan Gudder aptly states, “The essence of math is not to make simple things complicated, but to make complicated things simple,” and Math Week at BMC-Girls proved this statement to be100 percent correct!
