“Mathematics is the music of reason” – James Joseph Sylvester

Mathematics and music! Sounds odd! But no we believe that they go hand in hand, they synergize! And that is why we had a unique competition called “Mathathon which stands for a marathon of Mathematics. We conducted a logical mathematics competition with a soothing music back ground! And trust us it rocked!

Students from grades 7 – 9 competed against each other(in their own grades) and themselves in a contest that tested their logical reasoning and that too at a high speed. Students set a very high benchmark and met it with their zeal, enthusiasm and sincerity. As it was an inter-house event, students participated with high spirits to earn maximum scores for their house. Mathematics was what got them going and music was what supported. Thanks to all SS teachers and the Math team for making it a success!!
