High school teachers and pupils are invited to take part in a bold initiative that seeks to demystify mathematics and science.
The Engen and Learning Channel's My Best Lesson screens interactive lessons on SABC1 on weekdays and Saturdays on subjects that include mathematics, English, life orientation, mathematical literacy, physical science, accounting, biology and geography.
Started three years ago to reward, recognise and acknowledge the hard work of teachers who teach Grades 10, 11 and 12 maths and science classes, the My Best Lesson campaign required the participating teachers to submit their best lessons.
Lessons that impressed the project's adjudicators were then published as best practices inspirational illustrations in Sowetan Education Power Your Future supplement, known in short as PYF, which appears in this newspaper on Wednesdays.
This year, Engen and Learning Channel has extended the My Best Lesson campaign to pupils in Grades 10, 11 and 12, with laptops up for grabs for the winners.
"Find the fun in Maths and Science" is a statement aimed at testing the contestants' ability, ingenuity and talent to tackle specially-designed conundrum or, simply put, confusing or difficult problems or questions.
In the Find the fun in Maths and Science contest, three conundrums - one for each grade - are set and pupils are challenged to find the simplest, most creative solution applying physical science and maths principles.
They are also required to describe their solution in a simple and well-written English project.
Ten winning pupils in each of the three grades will be rewarded with personal computers or laptops.
Conundrums for the Engen and Learning Channel's Find the Fun in Maths and Science challenge have been set by the Learning Channel's physical science presenter, Peter Glover.
