Beyond the Classroom, Math Conquers
Alexandria Simon has her sights set on becoming a special effects designer for motion pictures, Kamalani Bicoy is a whiz at constructing robots, and Ehiku Arnold has mastered the ultimate brainteaser by solving the Rubik’s Cube in less than two minutes. Proving that math is more than just another school day lecture, mathletes and science geeks participated in all-things-math at the second annual Molokai Math Day, held last Saturday at the Mitchell Pauole Center.
“Math sometimes gets bad rep for being difficult and challenging, but when you get down to it, the subject is a lot of fun,” said Aka`ula School Principal Dara Lukonen. “Today the kids have a chance to see math outside the classroom and enjoy it.”
