Mathletics is a competition designed by engineers to demonstrate the application of mathematics in everyday life. The questions show the significance of mathematics in science and engineering. Every question is preceded by a succinct explanation of scientific principles and concepts. The competition is a learning tool for children rather than a rat race.

Students will enjoy the competition while learning important concepts. Student use the state of art technology to answer the questions by the use of ‘remote answering devices’ called as clickers.
