MATH-E-MAGIK, 2015-2016

“If people do not believe that Mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is” as said by John Louis Von Neumann
Academic Year
30 and 31 October, 2015

School Premises, Kollur, Hyderabad

Children at Open Minds felt Math as a fun subject, during their tour around the stalls put up by grade 1 to 4. They enjoyed playing the Math games along with their parents. Parents too had gala time going around the stalls and playing the games.

Our Globe Toters visited us and had the feel of the school’s vigor through this Math-e- Magik event.

Grade 1 and 2 stalls had games like Bounce and catch, Maze, Match me, Scrambled eggs, Sand Play to name a few. Grade 2 stalls had dart game, 1 minute game, Bingo, maze and few other games.

Parents had opportunity to play games in all the stalls. The stalls put up by grade 3 and 4 were appropriate to their standards , which even parents enjoyed playing like drawing the polygons using playing cards, pick and tally using vegetables and few other things, Clean the money game was based on grid concept. Monkeying with Multiplication, Triangle Multiplication and School yard Multiplication were games based on simple multiplication. May Flower Ride was the game which even Globe Trotters could play by picking up the toothpicks from different  shapes without moving the other sticks.

Finally the message the parents and students could carry was: “Without Mathematics there is nothing you can do. Everything around you is Mathematics, everything around you is numbers.”

This small effort of Open Minds is a giant leap towards removing the fear of Mathematics and instills the Joy of Mathematics in the minds of the Open Minds and Globe Toter students.
