Students in Mr. McKillip’s class will be competing in this year’s World Maths Day Challenge!
What is World Maths Day?
“Students play at home and at school against other students around the world in live games of mental arithmetic. Each game lasts for 60 seconds and students can play up to 500 games, earning points for each correct answer. The students who answer the most questions appear in the Hall of Fame. Students cannot select their level but will move up as they progress.”
“This is a truly unique world event and a fantastic way to promote numeracy. Past results show that students will make significant improvements in their mental arithmetic skills and have fun in the process.”
Today during Maths students logged in to the official World Maths Day website to test out their login, password and do a bit of practice. Students are welcome to log in and practice solving Maths problems from home. Be sure to check your child’s Link Book for their individual login and password.
The World Maths Day Challenge will take place on 3 March, 2010. Learn more about World Maths Day at www.worldmathsday.com
