KOTA KINABALU: The second Running Maths MSU President Cup 2019 event saw an applauding increase in participation compared to the first one held two years ago.

The participants whom were all Form Five students were given a variety of questions to test their Mathematics mastery level.

The programme, which was a joint collaboration between MSU College and the District Education Department, was an outdoor-based concept event.

The Principal of Sabah MSU College, Suif Sainan said that the foundation of the programme was to provide positive encouragement to students who will be sitting for their SPM this year, while also introducing the campus atmosphere.

“The methods of the Running Maths progamme were adapted from a Korean reality show called ‘Running Man’. We are aware that the youth, including the participating students, really enjoy the concept which was based on the show.

“Therefore, we are confident that activities like this, when inserting suitable inputs, would be able to polish the students’ intelligence and capabilities in Mathematics,” he said when met by New Sabah Times.

Meanwhile, the Head of Academic of the college, Anthony Chai explained that there were two sessions for the programme, divided into individual and team.

“For the ‘hot seat’ session, the students were tested with eight checkpoints which focused more on individual Mathematics Skills. For the second session – ‘Break the Code’ – students were required to solve Mathematics questions in six checkpoints.

“We were confident that their Mathematics problem-solving skills would allow them to enjoy and be satisfied with what they achieved as they focused on their calculation efficiency,” he said.

According to him, the questions tested on the participants were common questions that regularly come out in actual examinations.

“We extracted most of the questions from actual syllabus and examination papers from previous years,” he added. The programme received participation from 12 schools comprising 22 teams. Each team contained eight members.

Among the schools that took part were Maktab Rendah Sains Mara (MRSM) Kota Kinabalu, SMK Inanam, SMK St Peter Telipok, SMK Likas, SMK Perempuan Likas, SM Lok Yuk, SM All Saints, SM Stella Maris, SM St Francis Convent, SM Tinggi Kota Kinabalu, SMK Tansau, and SM La Salle.

At the end of the event, KK High School was announced the winner and has brought home prizes which included trophies, certificates, and RM800 cash money, while the overall individual winner was granted a scholarship sponsored by MSU.
