Global Math Week celebrated

Students at Al Qamar Academy were among the 1 million students from across the globe to participate in the Global Math Week. (

To start with Rafia Riaz , the maths teacher showed the exploding dots 1-2 machine video to the 4-7th grade children. They were fascinated. And started exploring with their own numbers.

On another day, Rafia took them further with the 1-3 machine. The children then proceeded to experiment with the 1-4, 1-5, 1-6 machines on their own with their friends. At the 1-10, they realised that its the system we use.

Children continued the thinking at home. One parent reports that guests to their home are greeted with an explanation of the 1-2 machine!

The neat thing - children who were previously not interested in Math, showed a burst of enthusiasm. Can we ask for more?
