This year, in our first week, we tried something new: In Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta classes, we participated in the Global Math Project!

The Global Math Project aims to engage students and teachers around the world in thinking and talking about the same appealing piece of mathematics during a series of annual Global Math Weeks. Last week, one million students, teachers, math leaders, and adults from around the world participated in an astounding shared mathematical experience!

The challenge was Exploding Dots – the name of an astounding mathematical story that starts at the very beginning of mathematics – it assumes nothing! – and swiftly takes you on a wondrous journey through grade school arithmetic, high-school polynomials algebra, infinite sums, and advanced mathematics. It all feels like playing a game! 

We hope everyone had fun! We captured some photos from our experience of this international project:
