A Meaningful Trip to Remember

On 8th February 2017, 15 Year 6 students and 2 teachers from Seri Mulia Sarjana International School were presented with a golden opportunity to visit Jerudong International School to attend a talk about Mathematics and the Meaning of Life.

The speaker of the talk – Jim Noble – hails from Toulouse, France and is currently a co-author of the website teachmathematics.net that provides insightful tips to mathematics teachers of all years for efficient lesson delivery.

The students were awe-inspired by the talk as it dealt with how mean or average plays a big part in our everyday lives. During the talk, Mr. Jim elaborated on the importance of mean in our everyday lives by using numerous and relatable real-life experiences to explain the complexity of its role in affecting the decisions we make in our everyday lives.

Throughout the talk, the students could be seen taking notes and having enjoyable discussions among themselves, sharing ideas. They were also tasked with the duty to make a presentation of what they had learned from the fruitful talk to their respective classes back in school.
