Tanzanian school celebrates #IB50 with mathematics week

Dar es Salaam International Academy in Tanzania is exploring new ways to enjoy mathematics in the IB's 50th anniversary year.

Shwetangna Chakrabarty, the academy's Diploma Programme (DP) coordinator and careers counsellor, explains how the math week, in which both DP and Middle Years Programme (MYP) students took part, was designed to create links with the IB learner profile.

The first day focused on the learner profile's reflective attribute, as students were encouraged to explore the topics of mathematics in nature.
