The Oh My Maths! program commenced with the ice-breaking session followed by motivation slot and ’running maths’ slot. All students were divided into 24 groups and each group consisted of students from different schools. The activities during motivation slot were kepentingan matematik and celik hati. The main content of this slot was to motivate students in being a responsible person. In ’running maths’ slot, all groups were required to go through eight (8) checkpoints. Each group needs to finish the task given at each checkpoint within 10 minutes. The activities carried out at each checkpoint involved mathematical games and mathematics questions. We hope that through this programme, all students could change their perception about mathematics and enjoy the learning process.
