Math and fun, how paradoxical does that sound? Well, that would possibly be right if you didn’t attend the NIS Math Fun Day at the Nasr City campus.
Although many find Math to be a difficult, boring or complicated subject, the school puts together an annual Math Fun Day in efforts to end the paradigms that overshadow the real pleasure behind studying math. Rather than running away from the problem, NIS encourages it’s students to take on the challenge and solve the problem while having fun.
It is a long awaited event by all mathletes who want to practice and enhance their skills. Fourth graders gather at the school playground and practice the lessons they have been taking in class in a different and creative manner.
Students played games which covered lessons they were taking in class like ascending and descending numbers and multiplication by missing numbers. They were divided into groups and took part in different competitions throughout the day; a little healthy competition was incentive for students to do their best while learning.
The event brings a new found pleasure in learning math for the fourth graders; the subject, at NIS, is becoming more interesting and easier to understand. By revealing the fun-side of math, the elementary students have opened to door to future opportunities that entail the use of mathematics. NIS could be raising and nurturing up-and-coming programmers, game developers, engineer and more! Overall, the event was a hit! Math Fun Day allowed students to get away from the typical classroom experience and open their eyes to a potentially new passion.
NIS mixed a little fun with a portion of math and successfully achieved Math Fun Day! The little mathematicians will continue to count, add, multiply and divide until until the end of time.
