Colegio Canigó de Barcelona celebrates the 9th edition of the Maths Champions competition

Canigó School has celebrated Maths Champions, with the participation of more than 150 students.

Last March 14th we celebrated the IX edition of the Maths Champions at the Canigo College of Barcelona: a fun Mathematics  contest for boys and girls of kindergarten. It is part of the project of Matemáticas Divertidas developed by Fomento. Its objective is that the boys and girls of Kindergarten  learn, have fun and enjoy Mathematics through playing.

This year more than 150 i5 students from four different schools participated: Viaró, Nuestra Señora Nursery School, John Talabot and Canigó.

Participants organized in work groups in which each one was assigned a role were able to measure, calculate, perform simple statistical exercises, serializations and solve small mathematical challenges. Everything was adapted to their age and everything took place in a limited time.

After the competition came the well-deserved rest: they all enjoyed an outdoors picnic, they played and were able to participate in a gymkhana organized by the 3rd grade students ESO

At Canigó School, Mathematics is fun from Kindergarten

The Maths Champions is part of the project Fun Math and of STEAM Project. These projects developed by Fomento demonstrate the success of this innovative learning method based on manipulation with the aim of incorporating mathematical reasoning in a close and fun way. They also do it through the union of different learning methodologies that work on logical thinking and experimentation. This program is also part of the Fomento Science Project and the Physics and Chemistry Projects.

Therefore we can say that in Canigo Mathematics is a child’s game!
