March 6th; World Maths Day 2013 wants to give pupils a change from their usual maths lessons and ask them to compete in live maths games! The bigger the number the better!
Each student will move up through 5 levels and can play a maximum of 500 games. But, if you're a bit of a potential Einstein you can play more games if you want! The extra points won't be added to your personal score but will get added to the Mathometer.
Schools everywhere are encouraged to get involved. The games will improve arithmetic and help kids see maths as more of a fun activity. This way, children who have a bit of trouble might see it as more of a doable challenge! All you have to do is register your class and wait for your simple instructions!
It's not just schools that can take part either. Students at school and home are encouraged to take part as long as they have internet access. The event is aimed at 518 years, but we bet there will be teachers and parents sneakily having a shot too!
If you or your class do really well, there are plenty of prizes up for grabs! Gold medals, trophies and certificates are all open to you. Find out all the information you need to take part at the official World Maths Day website.
Do you have an iPhone? You can easily play the games from that too!
The day was first launched on 13 March 2007. In 48 hours over 287,000 students from 98 countries participated to crush the world record and answer 38,904,275 questions correctly.
In March 2012, World Maths Day became an even bigger event, by becoming part of The World Education Games. This is a global education event, where all students and schools from around the world are invited to unite to set a new world record for the numbers of questions correctly answered in maths, spelling, and science.
