Another recent event that recognised the priceless role played by teachers is the Dr. Stya Paul Memorial Mathematics Quest. It is a unique annual inter-school event initiated in 2012 as a tribute to beloved founder Chairman, Dr. Stya Paul, who was himself a keen and proficient mathematician.

On the second day of the event, teachers across India participated in a paper presentation on the theme: ‘Innovative Practices in Teaching-Learning of Mathematics Integrated with Art’. Participating teachers were expected to integrate maths with an art form for a better understanding of the students.

Ms. Meenu Sehgal from Apeejay School, Saket, was awarded the second best paper award. Her paper focused on: Multiplication of Integers using Contours. She very innovatively associated her paper with the popular game of Tic-tac-toe. Her paper also included a video, featuring a rap song on the multiplication of integers composed by her students.
