Maths Week in the EIC

From April 12th to 16th, all students in the EIC celebrated Maths Week. It’s an event which happens around Pi day and the central theme this year was construction and special buildings from cities and countries around the world: the roman aqueduct in Segovia, Big Ben in London, the pyramids in Egypt, Gaudí buildings, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building…

Our objective was to investigate the reasons that make them so special and to study how maths plays an essential part in their construction.

Secondary students also participated in several games like “Escape Room”, where, using their maths abilities, they resolved logic challenges. Primary students toured the school resolving mathematical problems in an EIC Treasure Hunt.

This year we again ran the “Mental Maths” competition between the different primary cycles  and also the Maths Photo Contest.

The EIC hosted two schools from our area participating in “Proves Cangur” with our ESO 4 students.

The week ended with a closing ceremony including musical entertainment from the first cycle of Secondary, prizegiving, and the students had the opportunity to explain their work to the rest of the students, families and other members of the school community.
