‘Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations or algorithms; it is about understanding.’ ~ William Paul Thurston
The things of this world cannot be made known without the knowledge of mathematics. Research has shown that in daily life, at least 75% of all calculations are done mentally by adults.
Thus, to inculcate mental alertness and concentration, MRIS, Sec-14 Faridabad conducted a Rapid-o-Math quiz for students of Grade II to V. It assessed the mathematical skills of the students with a varying degree of difficulty and focussed on developing thinking and reasoning skills of students. The activity also concentrated on strengthening the team work and fostering the Mental Math skills.
