Most of the students enjoy each one of the Contest Week events very much which is evident from their participation and enthusiasm. The students of Class VI were asked to write about their favourite event in the Contest Week. Here is one of the writings by Sharmin Sabri (2016).
I have been to almost all events in the contest week and I have enjoyed every single one of them. But I enjoyed the Mental Math contest the most. It was about solving puzzles very fast. It was fascinating to watch this event, as we could see how the puzzles were being solved in large projector screen.
Parents and students were spellbound by the speed of the contestants. They were solving the puzzles instantly. The audience, including me, thoroughly enjoyed this event. Mistakes were followed by ‘ohs’ and ‘ahs’, while the correct ones were followed by loud clapping.
I just couldn’t take my eyes off the projector screen while the puzzles were being solved. It was all very interesting. In addition to all the fun and fascination the contest helps in improving math skills. For these reasons I liked the Mental Math contest the most. I really enjoyed it a lot and couldn’t help loving it.
