Igniting Mathematical Creativity: A Journey at OISCA International School

By Teacher Nicole

"Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think." - Albert Einstein

At OISCA International School, mathematics education is a vibrant tapestry of innovation and enjoyment, guided by the esteemed British curriculum. Year 1 students embark on an exploration of geometric shapes, not merely as abstract concepts, but as the building blocks of their creativity. They immerse themselves in forming patterns with pre-cut paper shapes, gradually transitioning to crafting their own imaginative images. From whimsical monsters to majestic animals, their creations are a testament to the fusion of mathematical understanding and artistic expression.

Meanwhile, Year 2 students dive into the dynamic world of math through the engaging 'On and Off' game. Armed with buttons and paper, they leap into the realm of addition and subtraction with gusto. The simple act of tossing buttons into the air becomes a thrilling learning experience as they eagerly count and analyze the outcomes. Through this hands-on approach, mathematical concepts come alive, transforming abstract theories into tangible experiences.

At OISCA, math education transcends rote memorization, nurturing a deep-seated love for learning and discovery. By fostering creativity and innovation, students not only grasp mathematical principles but also develop essential problem-solving skills that will serve them well in their academic journey and beyond. OISCA International School: where mathematics becomes a gateway to boundless possibilities.
