The “math”gicians of AIS!

May 05, 2017

Last week Jake, Aman and Tanisha from Grade 6 took part in the Annual Math Quest, organised by the International School of Geneva (Ecolint). For three days, they immersed themselves in a competition that involved 28 schools, mostly from Europe, but also from the USA, Oman and Qatar. The team of three AIS students was supplemented by a fourth student from Ecolint. They all worked hard on both individual and team tasks. They also went to visit CERN where they had to solve problems as part of the traditional Math Trail. The team collaborated really well and ended up as the 8th best team! A result they can all be proud of!

Here is a reflection from the students themselves:

And then we, Team AIS, took a jet to the Jet d’Eau.

It was a moment of great pride and privilege for us to represent our school at the 20th Math Quest 2017 in Geneva last week. There were several schools participating from all over the world, the farthest one coming from Los Angeles, who also took the much desired trophy home. It was great fun to meet students from different countries and be part of the global Math community. The Math trail at CERN was a unique experience too.

A big ‘THANK U’ to our school for giving us this amazing opportunity. We wish to specially thank our Math Teachers Mr. Koolmees and Mr. Koini for preparing us and most importantly in helping us face this Math challenge. We would also like to thank Mrs. Banker for her role as our coach.

Finally, we wish to thank each and everyone who helped us reach this level and supported us on this ‘Math’gical quest !
