In January, the Mathayom 1 students continued their work in the Numeracy Ninjas program. Numeracy Ninjas is a program designed to help students build their skills in using mathematical concepts and develop fluency in the use of numbers and math concepts. Once weekly, students take a 5 minute quiz designed to test their abilities in a variety of problem types. The timed nature of the tests helps students develop the practice of solving simple problems quickly and accurately. As the semester has progressed, there has been significant progress in numeracy skills recorded in all three classes.
Students answer 30 questions each week, and those students answering all 30 questions correctly are awarded the coveted “Black Belt” for the week. Students who earn 5 “Black Belts” are awarded “Grand Master” status and presented with a certificate to document their accomplishment. In January, 2017, Sixteen more students from Mathayom 1 were awarded “Grand Master” status, joining the 5 previous Grand Masters: In Mathayom 19, Phattharapol Chaumuangsan, Pichanon Roongwarasopit, Maedhus Sumethasorn, Boonyaphu Burarapakdee, Teerathat Pongwuttised, and Thanabordee Boriboonsub. In Mathayom 110, Noppavhit Punpeng, and in Mathayom 111, Thanisorn Wiwatwarin, Panas Tangmanpoowadol, Wanarach Srikhrin, Kittipat Chua-anusorn, Chinnakrit Thitacharoenwong, Teetouch Kuntanapanid, Jettaphat Leelaphannawut, Shinitthavat Periera, and Thanathrit Jiravidnayaporn. Congratulations to all the students participating in the program, and best of luck in pursuing and achieving “Grand Master” status as a Numeracy Ninja.
