Maths Week 2024 - Bangkok Prep

Maths Week 2024

Last week, our KS3, 4 and 5 students enjoyed a week filled with mathematical exploration and celebration at Bangkok Prep’s first ever Mathematics Week. The activities proved to be enriching for those students who eagerly chose to dive into the world of Maths.

Throughout the week, lunchtimes were abuzz with engaging activities designed to foster a love for Mathematics. From interactive puzzles to group challenges, students had ample opportunities to flex their mathematical muscles and discover the fun side of numbers.

One of the most anticipated events of the week was the celebration of Pi Day on Thursday. Pi Day, observed on March 14th (3/14), paying homage to the mathematical constant π (pi). This is always a popular Maths day at Prep and this year was no different with the infamous Pi recital the day’s highlight, special mention must go to Yong in Year 10 for an unbelievable 647 decimal places; lots of house points and awarded to the winners in each year group and beach house:

Year 7: Advick.

Year 8: Maithu.

Year 9: Haruma.

Year 10: Yong.

Year 13: Jihyo.


Panthera: Maithu.

Surus: Jihyo.

Sabre: Advick.

Ursus: Haruma.


The Pi bake-off competition was fun with 2 great entries from Rishaan and Malak, with Malik’s cake just beating Rishaans in the taste test by the Maths faculty.  

Among the week’s other highlights was an exciting clinometer engineering activity, where students used mathematical principles to measure the height of the new D block. This hands-on experience not only enhanced students’ understanding of Trigonometry but also showcased the real-world applications of Mathematics.

Other crowd favourites were the ‘countdown’ and ‘24’ competitions, which proved to be fiercely competitive among our students. These challenges tested students’ quick thinking offering an opportunity for friendly competition and intellectual stimulation.

As Mathematics Week concluded we would like to thank all the students who eagerly took part in the various activities. 

Special thanks is also due to the dedicated Maths team for their efforts in organising and running the sessions with patience, energy, and positive vibes.

All in all a successful celebration that has hopefully deepened students’ appreciation for Mathematics and inspired them to continue exploring the endless possibilities of Mathematics.
