“Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations or algorithms: it is about understanding.” – Paul Halmos
P.B. Academic School recently organised a captivating event, “The Maths Mela”, aimed at nurturing the mathematical skills of young minds of Classes II to V on 20th September 2023.It was a day filled with mathematical exploration, fun activities and valuable learning experiences.
The heart of the Maths Mela was the various mathematical exhibits set up across the school auditorium. Each grade level had its own section with interactive displays, puzzles and activities aligned with their curriculum.
Students had the opportunity to play math-themed board games, card games, math quizzes and challenges testing their knowledge and problem -solving skills. Creative minds were at work with math-inspired art and craft projects.
These activities provided students with hands on experience, mental math tricks and a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts.It also helped students to dispel their fears regarding maths as a subject.
The Maths Mela was a resounding success. It was heartwarming to see the smiles of achievement on the faces of our students. We believe that events like these play a pivotal role in making education both enjoyable and meaningful.
