“Mathematics expresses values that reflect the cosmos, including orderliness, balance, harmony, logic, and abstract beauty.” ― Deepak Chopra
Excelomatics club develops children’s knowledge and understanding of math. It provides children with a chance to try new things. It also helps children apply their math skills to other ‘real-life’ math investigations.
The students of Class I did an activity called the “Multiplication Wheel Model”. The multiplication wheel is a simple model with the help of which they are supposed to memorize the multiplication table and write the answers of the products on the outside of the wheel. It is a spinning disc which gives us the answers of a given multiplication table once rotated.
While the students of Class II and III did an activity called the ‘Marble Maze’. A maze is a path or collection of paths, typically from an entrance to a goal. The word is used to refer both to branching tour puzzles through which the solver must find a route, and to simpler non-branching patterns that lead unambiguously through a convoluted layout to a goal. Students used the cover of a shoebox or a paper plate, straws and glue to make the maze. The members of the Excelomatics club have shown their great aptitude in learning new things and have the great potential to make a difference in solving maths.
