Webinar: Mathematical Thinking and Logic
In order to spark students' interest in mathematics and familiarize them with mathematical notions that go beyond textbooks, Mandoulides Schools organize actions that cultivate students' mathematical thinking and logic and prepare them to participate as well as earn distinctions in both national and international mathematical contests.
During the school year 2021-2022, the educational programs on mathematics will be conducted online due to the epidemiological conditions.
More specifically on Saturday, 16 October 2021, from 17:00 to 18:45, the following programs will be held according to the schedule:
- Mathematical Thinking and Logic (for 8th - 12th grade students)
The Mathematical Thinking and Logic Week has been organized by Mandoulides Schools for the last 15 years, with the participation of distinguished teachers, school counselors, representatives of the Hellenic Mathematical Society and Mathematical Olympiad winners. It was an idea proposed by the founder of the Schools, Evangelos Mantoulidis. It aims to prepare Junior-Senior High School students from throughout the city as well as Central Macedonia fοr the challenging competitions of the Hellenic Mathematical Society, the Mathematical Olympiads and Balkan Mathematical Olympiads, free of charge.
- Introduction to Mathematical Thinking and Logic (for 7th grade students)
The goal of the program is to draw the attention of students with an inclination to mathematics, via carefully designed exercises, contribute to the development of their skills and facilitate their preparation for mathematical contests.
- Mathematical Games (for 5th and 6th grade students)
The aim of the program is to guide and encourage students to familiarize themselves with fundamental mathematical notions, while combining learning with fun. Students engage themselves in solving mathematical riddles and puzzles as well as performing innovative and engaging mathematical activities in the form of play that trigger their love for mathematics.
The lessons will be conducted online through Microsoft Teams application. An invitation will be sent to all participants' personal accounts.
