DOKA & DOKA NATIONAL FINAL 2020

DOKA & DOKA NATIONAL FINAL 2020

Depth of Knowledge Assessment (DOKA) is an International Mathematical Problem-Solving Competition held annually around the globe. It is jointly organized by SMO Education Group, Academy TeamMathics, SIMCC and supported by International Scholastic Trust.

Many may not be aware that Reasoning Skills is one of the most important elements in higher order thinking. Reasoning is the action of thinking about something in a logical, sensible way and to find an answer to a problem by considering possible options.

DOKA and DOKA National Final provide healthy competitive platforms for students from Year 1 to 13 (Primary 1 to A-Levels/STPM) to assess their HOTS and IQ ability among their own year level group. Parents and school teachers can also take this opportunity to assess their children and students BEFORE they attempt more challenging maths competitions or IQ tests in future.

All Malaysian students who have won High Distinction/ Distinction/ High Credit in DOKA 2019 will be invited to join the Thailand International Mathematical Olympiad (TIMO) Final in Chiang Mai, Thailand and High Distinction/ Distinction/ High Credit in DOKA 2020 will be invited to join the DOKA (National Final) in Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong International Mathematical Olympiad (HKIMO) Final in Macau. Malaysian students who have won High Distinction/ Distinction in DOKA 2020 will be invited to join SIMOC (Singapore International Mathematics Olympiad Challenge) in Singapore and AIMO (Asia International Mathematical Olympiad) & WMGO Final in South Korea. Contest entry is available on a first come first served basis, so register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Why DOKA?

DOKA is SPECIAL. DOKA is unlike any other math competitions. It provides a range of interesting variation in questions to spark students’ curiosity and encourages them to think outside the box and invoke their love for math!

An Opportunity for All. DOKA exposes students to the various types of Reasoning Skills and this gives them the opportunity to explore and the confidence to take part in more challenging math competitions and start scoring A*s in Math.

Reaching Greater Heights. DOKA helps students to be comfortable with various mathematical problem solving in the right environment. DOKA wants students to utilize this experience to continue to take part in more challenging Math Olympiad Competitions in the future.

DOKA is designed based on Depth of Knowledge in Mathematical Problem Solving. With realistic and high standards, DOKA aims to expose more students to mathematical problem solving and invoke their love for math. It will help them improve in school math as well as higher-order thinking skills (HOTS). With the solution manuals which will be available after the contest, students can learn creative heuristic methods recommended to solve complex mathematical problems, as well as, knowing their strengths and areas for improvement.

Just like playing football. If we want to play well, we go for training, we go for tournaments/competitions. Then, we improve and get better at it.

Just like the former Professor who commented in Quora below; Mathematics CAN be a hobby!

Just like Martin Gardner's well-known recreational maths problems. The problems he created were designed to get us thinking, as he noted many people do not like to think. He believes that humans are terrific at thinking when we choose to do so, it is just that people find it easier not to.

The problems that Gardner made does not need extensive expertise to come up with a "solution" for them. We just need logic, and common sense.

Here's a famous problem from Mr. Gardner:
𝗧𝗲𝗻 𝗿𝗲𝗱 𝘀𝗼𝗰𝗸𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗲𝗻 𝗯𝗹𝘂𝗲 𝘀𝗼𝗰𝗸𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗺𝗶𝘅𝗲𝗱 𝘂𝗽 𝗶𝗻 𝗮 𝗱𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗲𝗿 𝗱𝗿𝗮𝘄𝗲𝗿. 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝟮𝟬 𝘀𝗼𝗰𝗸𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗲𝘅𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗹𝘆 𝗮𝗹𝗶𝗸𝗲 𝗲𝘅𝗰𝗲𝗽𝘁 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗶𝗿 𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗼𝘂𝗿. 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗿𝗼𝗼𝗺 𝗶𝘀 𝗶𝗻 𝗽𝗶𝘁𝗰𝗵 𝗱𝗮𝗿𝗸𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝘁𝘄𝗼 𝗺𝗮𝘁𝗰𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘀𝗼𝗰𝗸𝘀. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝗺𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗻𝘂𝗺𝗯𝗲𝗿 𝗼𝗳 𝘀𝗼𝗰𝗸𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗺𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗱𝗿𝗮𝘄𝗲𝗿 𝗶𝗻 𝗼𝗿𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝘁𝗼 𝗯𝗲 𝗰𝗲𝗿𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗮 𝗽𝗮𝗶𝗿 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗺𝗮𝘁𝗰𝗵?

Again, once you see the answer, you will be surprised by its simplicity. There is a very simple mathematical principle at play in this problem. You can also solve this problem with your child using actual socks!

Enjoy Learning Maths!
