Students dived deep in Math challenges last week! Celebrating the past week as the Math Week, RC Community came together in various events ranging from treasure hunt to mancala.
The week started off with a treasure hunt and a sudoku tournament where each student tried to solve all the questions before everyone else. Then there was an origami workshop where the community learned about how paper swans and flowers are made. The week continued with a mancala tutorial session where the participants learned about this game “for a family of two-player turn-based strategy board games played with small stones, beans, or seeds and rows of holes or pits in the earth, a board or other playing surface.”
There was a workshop on how to solve rubik’s cube where tips were shared with the community. Also a tutorial on the game Go, which is a maths related strategy board game that was invented more than 2500 ago in China, was held. Participants got a grasp of the basics of Go.
Along with these workshops and tutorials, there was a chess tournament and a Pi-Catcher Game. Also a challenging math problem was shared every day with the community.
RC students, faculty and staff enjoyed to learn about tricks and secrets of mathematical problems and they enjoyed every challenge they faced in each activity.
