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.

Practice good sleep hygiene, exercise and try to mediate. Meditation can help to reduce stress on your immune system.

"Something as simple as a five-minute yoga tactic,'' he said. "Go sit on the toilet seat, put it down — you're not going to the bathroom — sit there, quiet yourself and just realize that it's OK. No one will bother you there."

𝟮. 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗶𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮 𝘃𝗶𝘁𝗮𝗺𝗶𝗻 𝗗 𝘀𝘂𝗽𝗽𝗹𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁.
Oz suggested adding a few supplements to boost your defenses against illness.

"Supplements have never been shown to beat coronavirus, however there are some tactics that will slow down the progression of viruses in general,'' he said. "So ideas that work well generally are vitamin D, which you get from the sun, but this time of year you've got to take it as a supplement."

He also recommended vitamin C, zinc and elderberry supplements, as well as getting vitamin C from healthy sources like leafy greens, salmon and berries.

𝟯. 𝗟𝗼𝗮𝗱 𝘂𝗽 𝗼𝗻 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗹𝘁𝗵𝘆 𝗳𝗿𝘂𝗶𝘁𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘃𝗲𝗴𝗲𝘁𝗮𝗯𝗹𝗲𝘀.
"Fruits and vegetables make a huge difference, they enhance your immune response," he noted. Oz shared some recipes for delicious and healthy smoothies that also pack in plenty of antioxidants for immune system health.

His "green energy machine" smoothie includes spinach, matcha powder and almond milk, while his "ginger hydrator" drink features oranges, bananas and pineapple.

"The nice thing about this baby is that it's got all the antioxidants you'd ever want to have, and I think you'll like the taste," he said about the ginger hydrator.

𝟰. 𝗚𝗲𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗳𝗹𝘂 𝘀𝗵𝗼𝘁.
"That way if you feel ill, you know it's not the flu, most likely," Oz explained.

For those who are 60 and older and worried about the coronavirus, Oz shared risk factors people in that demographic should keep an eye on.

He also noted that he has been frequently asked by people whether they should avoid going out in public due to the coronavirus, and he urged people not to panic.

"Live your life,'' he said. "Do not live your life with fear. Live it with joy and kindness."
