MIND QUEST (MQ) Tuition Berakas recently conducted its very first major activity called "Sprint Maths" successfully which was organised by Mathematics Department.
"Sprint Maths" consists of Mathematics questions in which participants have to work in groups and race to complete the tasks given in order to win. All the questions given were based on exam questions and some of the questions need to be done practically. Each group need to figure out "Brain Teaser's Questions" before they can obtain the next questions and clues.
The activity was held during the school break. It was led by Muhd Khairul Hidayatullah Hj Basir, mathematics tutor and assisted by two other mathematics tutors, Nur Afidah Abd Malik and Dk Siti Ayunni Pg Duraman, and some MQ staffs.
The objectives of the activity were to make the students understand the know how of applying Mathematics in real life.
"The common problem faced by us is that, our students are giving up easily with the mathematical problems without first making an attempt. To our surprise, while the activity was running, we could see that all the participants worked so hard, helped among each other as a team and never gave up until they sort out the answers," said one of the tutors.
"This sort of attitude is what we as tutors want to see in their studies in order for them to get good grades. The initiative and hardwork from the students is a 'key' to success. We received an encouraging number of participants from both MQ students and non-MQ students of different levels."
MQ will be conducting two more interesting activities in the following month such as "One Minute Challenge" and "Are You Smarter than Sixth Graders?". The Brunei Times
