At Immaculate Conception School, math is amazing when we use our “IMATHIMATION”. This was the title of an assembly program, brought to the school through Mobile Ed. Productions. Imathimation encourages kids to think outside the box and to use their “imathimation” to envision all the ways in which math affects their lives every day. Playing on ordinary situations to create extraordinary excitement, the students were shown how cooking, sports, shopping, music and a variety other everyday tasks all revolve around the importance of math.
Students learned about finance and savings and saw how math can magically multiply their savings. They also baked a gigantic three tiered cake using “mathmagical” measurements. Student volunteers raced to create a bridge using only mathematical principles. This math oriented assembly made it easy for students to see math as an exciting part of everyday life.
