From scores of schools in the National Capital Region and nearby provinces that joined the elimination round of the 2013 MTG-SHARP-SM-DepEd Math Trail and Problem Solving Competition, nearly a couple dozen have found their way to the final round which will be held at 1 o’clock in the afternoon, Saturday, November 16, 2013 at 4F SM North, The Annex in Quezon City.
Math trail is a math exploratory activity which centers on relating math to the real world, making students active learners and giving them sense of achievement. The trail takes the participants on a predetermined route with numerous stations where they will have to complete mathematical tasks. Dr. Simon Chua, president of MTG said, “This activity is a wonderful opportunity to bring the excitement of real-world math into the classroom and bring the classroom into the real-world.”
