For those of you who may not know, Professor Marcus Du Sautoy is a leading professor at the University of Oxford and an advisor on the Mangahigh Board. Marcus has taken time out of his schedule to share with us his thoughts on time itself, and where it may have originated from.
Sunny Thakral, a teacher at The British School, New Delhi, explains how using Mangahigh helped their students develop mathematic proficiency and go on to win an International School Award for the Use of Digital Technology in Learning.

A significant amount of research has been undertaken on maths anxiety in children and how an established, fear of mathematics can result in low levels of confidence – a problem that parents and teachers have been observing in students increasingly around the world. Below are the top 3 researched and documented reasons for maths anxiety in children, (and in some cases even in adults), and some suggestions on how we can help students overcome these.
In November last year Mangahigh ran a competition in association with COBIS and all their registered schools. It was a huge success that saw schools from all over the globe compete for the chance to win the maths competition title.
From March 11th– 22nd 2018, Mangahigh held its annual ‘Middle East Maths Ninja Challenge’, which saw a 35% increase in the number of schools participating in the competition compared with the previous year. A total of 17,000 students participated and 1,243 of these students won individual medals.
