School Bilingual Math Olympiad
Students were arranged by their grades to take Math Olympiad during Friday Assemblies. The questions were well assorted among arithmetic, logical thinking, spatial analysis, and frequent math Olympiad problems. The site was never in scarce of tensions and excitements.
Me as a Math Teacher
Primary students came on stage to explain Olympiad math problems to their classmates. They were serious and attentive, just like competent little teachers.
On the fourth "International Math Day" of March 14th, OCIS students made delicious pizzas by themselves, tasting the joy of labor and gaining hands-on skills.
Secondary students teamed up to choose a geometric shape to make their own kites. Awards were given to: the Best Participation, the Best Creativ, the Best Art, the largest kite, and the smallest kite，Special Prize 3D Kite.
We believe that the joyful Kite Day gives a relaxing break to Secondary rigorous study routine.
From the start of this month, to help OCIS students prepare for the International Math Kangaroo Competition, the Math Group offered all participants pre-competition training during school hours. Primary school Monday and Thursday, Secondary School Tuesday and Wednesday. With one hour of tutoring on each day, students gained full confidence coming up to the contest.
除了统一的学部活动，数学月主题教学还融入于日常的数学授课中，比如一年级英文数学课3D SHAPES，孩子们用糖块搭建房子，取名OCIS DREAM SCHOOL，寓意要在这里完成自己所有的梦想。
In addition to whole school activities, Math Month themed teaching was also integrated into daily math classes. For instance, 3D SHAPES was a G1 English math class where children build houses with sugar cubes. They named it OCIS DREAM SCHOOL, wishing to fulfill all their dreams here.
Students in Secondary worked in groups to select a single concept from the knowledge they have learned in the classroom and create a "Ted Talk" style presentation for review and presentation to the entire class.
From creativity to design to applications, the Math Month activity includes both the learning and application of mathematical knowledge, as well as the thinking and expression of the subject of mathematics. It is a perfect learning loop. A series of activities not only stimulate children's learning initiative, allowing them to make utterance and express themselves, but also integrate ordinary mathematical elements into life, stimulating innovation and thinking.
Mathematics makes life more exciting. Although the Month of Mathematics has passed, we hope that our children will love mathematics even more and always have a heart of exploration in their future studies!
