Another opportunity for our students to achieve additional house points is on our Mathematics ‘Problem of the Week’ wall. There’s a Key Stage 3 and a Key Stage 4 problem that stretches and challenges them to think in a creative way. Students can work independently or in teams to tackle the problem, and house points are awarded for their mathematical presentation and their answers.
We are very lucky with our students here at BIS Hanoi, who have a genuine interest in our subject and enjoy embarking on problems in their own time during the school day.
None of this, of course, would be possible without the fantastic Maths team, so a huge thank you goes to them too!

On Wednesday this week all of the Year 12 students took part in their group 4 project. The group 4 project is a mandatory part of their IBDP and requires students to collaborate with students across the group 4 subjects of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Sport Science and Computer Science.
The brief this year was to take a photograph of anything around the school campus and explain the science involved. Themes photographed by the students included ‘The Science of Joma’, ‘The science of hand sanitizer’, ‘The Science of football’. All students attempted the challenge with enthusiasm and creativity.
