On the 30th of September, our School was glad to host the 11th edition of Mathemania 2020 . We are happy to state that we have succeeded in arranging this session despite the Covid terror Situation.
The pandemic inadvertently aided us to be able to better our program with the implementation of new techniques and know-how. Hence, the introduction of the electronic buzzer and also the virtual congregation was possible because we are all ready to acclimatize and adapt come what may.
For the very first time for us, a rank outsider and an avid quizzer Mr Salil Bijur conducted the quiz as the Quiz Master. He surely made the rounds more and more interactive and fun-filled. Being very affable, he charmed his way through every participant’s heart. His research skills and fundamental knowledge too were brilliant and so they were an equally good treat for all the quizzers’ mind.
The first-ever virtual Mathemania was an affair to remember with 18 schools participating. For the first time in the past 11 years, there was a tie in the Grand Finale between Nirav Chakraborty of The Orchid School and Ishaan Ambekar of Symbiosis. And hence a short tie-breaker round was the call of the hour. As Ishaan made a complete sweep in this round, he was declared the winner. As such he bagged Rs. 4000 as Crossword gift vouchers and a certificate for himself and a Rolling Trophy for his school. On the other hand, Neerav secured Rs. 2000 as Crossword gift vouchers and a certificate.
The quiz was indeed a meticulously planned event. Eagerly awaiting Mathemania 2021. Cause we know that time, tide and quizzing wait for none.
