A place for startup entrepreneurs to meet in Pune
Math is an abstraction of logical thinking. By putting structure to thinking and developing methodsto deal with complexity, math enables the human mind to stretch its limits. But most children learn Math as a series of boring procedures without any context and fun. At the same time, most kids love games – physical or virtual. Can math gaming bring together both fun and learning. This club intends to bring together children and encourage them to “learn” math and logical/analytical thinking through fun activities and games. A series of group interactions is planned where children can compete and collaborate around these activities/ games while also analyzing and thinking through the strategy behind the games.
A typical session will have:
Review of take-home game
Grouping the participants (5 groups of 4 each)

Analysis of the game with focus on basic elements of the game and strategies Listen to selected examples of how math was used to solve important and not-so-important real-world problems. Puzzles/games to play at home.
