Discovering, relating & expressing numbe

Nehru World School in collaboration with Cambridge University Press' Festival of Expressions invited students to see the mathematics and its relevance in the real world. Together, we encouraged and motivated students to find and express Math Around Me.

We firmly believe that Math represents the emanation of the human spirit. Through the ‘Festival of Expressions’ programme, we invited students to participate in this journey of discovering and rediscovering Math.

The final 31 winners with their prizes will be announced on March 5th, 2021 in the following Talking Diaries event.

Students could submit their entries to present Math in the real world as it unfolds in their daily life. It could have been, Math as it EXISTS in nature, or as it is APPLIED.

Ranging from the obvious - when budgeting for a weekly shopping trip or measuring out quantities for a recipe, to the more discreet – how plants grow new cells or honeybees build their beehives, a symmetrical image or an architect at work, students can be as creative as they like.

Submissions could include how maths is used and found in the real world.

The idea was to showcase the artistic side of Math, analysing how there is beauty hidden within this seemingly dry subject or to talk about the strength it lends to other disciplines.

Math Around Me did not involve any invention or discovery, but a tinge of creativity and a pure streak of observation. All you needed was CURIOSITY and a keen eye to relate math learning with the world around.
