School events such as a fair or celebration allow children to learn about matters which are more realistic and connect to daily life, in a manner which is beyond the scope of textbooks. In my learning and teaching experience, I encountered many events centred around science and other subjects but very few of mathematics. When talking about having such events in mathematics at least in the mainstream public education system, the number is almost zero. The learning experience for mathematics has not been very joyful and experiential as compared to others. When I heard about the unique concept of measurement fair, “MAPAN MELA”, it quite excited me.
