With a goal to develop students’ logical reasoning skills and grow their interest in math, the CBSE has asked the affiliated schools to make students of classes 1 to 12 to take part in the BRICS Math Online Competition to be conducted from April 22 - May 22.
The online test will be held for free on the site www.bricsmath.com. Students from seven continents –Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Indonesia, and Vietnam–can take part.
The project will bring together students from different backgrounds having a passion for math on one platform. The competition will include 10 interactive math tasks, crafted in a child-friendly game form. The tasks on logical and spatial thinking do not require any prior knowledge of math and will empower the students to think outside the box.
More than 11,431 students from Punjab participated in the competition last year. Of them, 3,365 got winner certificates, 4,329 achieved certificates of appreciation and 3,737 received participation certificates.
Students must be registered by their teachers or parents, who will require to choose the country, class, and language to register themselves on the website and then add the students to the class list. Individual login and password credentials will then be created for every candidate to log into their profiles and solve the tasks.
The competition will be conducted in 2 rounds. In the Ist month, the trial round will be held, and the main round will be held in the succeeding month. As students can take unlimited attempts in the trial round to solve the tasks, it will enable them to practice well for the main round. The results of the trial round will not affect the candidate’s entry into the main round.
Though, students will have only one attempt to complete all tasks within 60 minutes in the main round.
