International Math Day

Mathematics can be considered the bedrock of many scientific disciplines, and finally it has a day of its own. The International Day of Mathematics (IDM), which this year will have the slogan, ‘Mathematics is Everywhere’ is an initiative spearheaded by the International Mathematical Union and aims to explain the essential role mathematics plays in scientific and technological innovations. Moreover, mathematics may play a key role in the fulfillment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

  3. Deliver generalized mathematical knowledge that responds to the lifelong learning

Asynchronous Activities

Each school will play the “escape room” or escape game, a challenge activity where students collaborate to find clues, complete tasks and solve a variety of puzzles within a time limit to unlock a door and reach the next level until they all are finished.

At the beginning and at the end of the activity, there will be a welcome and thankful video on behalf of the host schools’ directives (Colombia – Mexico).

Day: 15th March 2022
