Event Description

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)

 Introduction to a competitive/ collaborative activity or board game. Learning the rules.

 Participants will be allowed to play the game as per the rules.

 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.

Workshop does not provide:

 No ranking or scoring shall be provided. Idea is to enjoy math via games and encourage analytical/ strategic thinking.  Lunch is not planned under this workshop
