Year 6 Maths Masterclasses by Student Maths Leaders

06 April 2018

The Student Maths Leaders have organised interactive and practical Maths Masterclasses for Year 6 students to foster their passion for problem solving and Maths.

  • Year-6-Maths
  • Year-6-Maths-4
  • Year-6-Maths-3
  • Year-6-Maths-5
  • Year-6-Maths-7
  • Year-6-Maths-2
  • Year-6-Maths-6

In efforts to make Maths more compelling and applicable to younger students, we, the Student Maths Leaders, have organised various problem solving activities with the Year 6 children to challenge their creative thinking in a collaborative environment.

The challenges we have run over the past few weeks ranged from a Code-breaking Murder Mystery, Coordinate Battleships, Matchsticks Puzzles to Tangrams. The Year 6 children truly surprised us with their continuous enthusiasm, perseverance and ingenuity.

This week’s challenge included calculating the volume of some mind-boggling shapes and drawing them isometrically on paper. Next week, which is unfortunately our final session, we have organised a very memorable team-based problem solving activity involving marshmallows!

We, the Student Maths Leaders, are a team of Year 12s with a desire to spread our passion for Maths in BIS HCMC: aside from these Masterclasses, we have organized the infamous Pi Day Challenge and are hosting the citywide Junior Logic Competition in May.

Students Maths Leaders: Daniel Han, Victoria Fethke, Doan Nguyen,  Beom Jun Kim, Hi Leung, Jin Ho Kim, Min Ha Jeon and Jenny Lee.
