Through this Event, team MathoLetics wants to make an honest effort to change the mindset of students that Math is difficult.
Arithmophobia (Fear of Maths) is a global phenomenon. Research shows that more than 85% of students fear mathematics. They fear mathematics because everybody around them tells that MATH is complicated. People around them narrate their stories about how they used to bunk mathematics classes and score pass marks in the subject. They even go to the point of telling that even today, they are very poor with mathematics. The environment around them makes it more difficult, and the student develops a mindset that MATH is complicated. Math Race is an honest effort to change the mentality that MATH is difficult.
