World Math(s) Day 2011

World Math(s) Day is a global education event where students from around the world are invited to unite to set a new world record for the number of Maths questions answered correctly.

“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 100 games, earning points for their personal tally. Students can play beyond 100 games during the event, but points will only count to the WMD Mathometer, not their personal point score. The students who answer the most questions correctly will appear on the Hall of Fame. There are 5 levels of play, 20 games on each level.”

“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.”

At IST the World Math(s) Day Challenge will start at 2.00pm (GMT +3) on 1 March and finish 2 March at 2.00pm. Learn more about World Maths Day at www.worldmathsday.com

IST Grade 2 students will be participating in this year’s World Math(s) Day. Each student has their own unique login and password information. This information should be available so that students can start practicing and participating from home.
