“The only way to learn Mathematics is to do Mathematics”- Paul Halmos
To enhance mathematical abilities among students, an Inter class competition AMALGAMATH (Art using Tangram pieces) was conducted for students of classes 4 and 5.
In the preliminary round which held on 2nd September 2021, Students were asked to create any 2D shape of their choice using 7 specific Tangram pieces (2 large triangles, 1 medium triangle, 2 small triangles, 1 square and 1 parallelogram). Students made colourful and creative shapes like Aeroplane, Sparrow, Rocket, Boat House, etc. in 15 minutes time duration.
Selected students of the preliminary round were called for a final round which held on 9 September 2021. Students were asked to design an animal/bird of their choice with a background using 7 specific Tangram pieces (2 large triangles, 1 medium triangle, 2 small triangles, 1 square, and 1 parallelogram). Though the topic was given on the spot, students were able to think and act as fast as possible. They were all able to showcase their creativity and talent in a short span of 15 minutes. Their colourful and innovative work was appreciated and valued by the judges and teachers.
