Learning is long-lasting if it is strengthened through the application of the same in play way method. Therefore, the students were encouraged to showcase their creativity by using Colourful Origami sheets, glaze papers, etc., in verifying the identity.

Students gained hands-on experiences by performing this activity, thus eliminating the fear of Mathematics.
