Math and Science Week
From March 8 to March 12 was the annual Math and Science Week on FZ campus. This year, through research, experiments, 3-D printing, quiz bowls, competitions, and so on, students experienced the wonder of mathematics and science. Through participation and presentation, student interest in math and science grew by leaps and bounds.
For the math portion, there is a big Pi Day Math Competition after school on Wednesday, March 10th. Teams of 4 will compete against each other in two divisions, Middle School and High School. The competition has 3 rounds: individual, team, and lightning round. Medals will be given to the top three in each round and each division.
We also have activities during the school week which involve secondary classes working with all primary classes. These activities include Walking Through Paper, Dice Duel, Secret Codes, Pi Skyline, and Pi Necklaces. There is a competition among grade levels that can be done at home, in the evening, called Marble Slides. This will be done using Desmos on the computer. And last but not least, in the math hallway, students can try some STEM and Engineering problems posted daily throughout the week.
Teaching is both a systematic explanation by teachers and also an interactive discussion between teachers and students. What an informative, creative, and inspiring week for all students!
