AMESA 2015 SHARP Mental Maths Competition

Over the course of AMESA 2015 in Limpopo, Seartec, proud distributor of SHARP, held a very special competition!

Teachers from around the country tried their best to have the fastest fingers on the SHARP EL-W535HT scientific calculator which has a unique feature drill mode! This mode allows students to practice their mental maths on the calculator. The calculator will ask the question and the student must then answer the question after which he or she presses the equals button. If the answer is correct the student will get a tick and a new question, however, if the answer is incorrect, the answer will be marked wrong and the same question will appear again. At the very end of the 25, 50 or 100 question exercise, the student will get their mark out of 25 as well as their percentage.

The eager teachers at AMESA were challenged to finish the 25 mental maths mixed questions as fast as they could with 100%. They were timed to see who had the fastest fingers!

The lady on the far right in the blue jacket is Caroline Malapile who came third!
