OLIMARE KIDS 1 (Recreational Mathematics with Ludic Materials)

The KID’S 1 RECREATIONAL MATH OLYMPICS (OLIMARE KID’S 1), are born as part of the OLYMPIAD BINATIONALS OF GERARDINE ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE (BIOLEAGE). As an educational institution, we seek that children can capture the knowledge acquired through games in different corners that stimulate the development of logical thinking in the teaching-learning process.

In our fifth edition, we extend our invitation to the educational community of the different provinces of Ecuador, especially to our province of Loja, El Oro, and northern Peru, which have already been part of the OLIMARE KID’S 1 project. One of the objectives of this project is that the teachers of this level of the different educational institutions, we can share experiences of ludic and active teaching in relation to the operations of thought, with a view to the improvement of the teaching performance in the training of children of these levels, making them they become actively involved and interact in the physical and social world of mathematics, through the manipulation of concrete material, which will serve as the basis for the development of the skills of logical – mathematical thinking in abstract form. The competition will be totally playful, the games will be arranged in five corners, which will be represented with the following colors: yellow (seriation), red (colorful pizza), blue (Cuisenaire strips), lilac (lottery of numbers), and green (crazy figurines).

The evaluation will be accredited quantitatively as follows:
