It’s time for students around the world to get ready for World Maths Day, which will be held on Wednesday, 7 March 2018! World Maths Day is the largest maths competition in the world, with more than 4 million students from over 17,000 schools in 200 countries, territories and principalities expected to participate again this year. Which countries will produce 2018’s best mathletes?
World Maths Day was established in 2007 and has grown exponentially each year. It is and always will be a free, all-inclusive event for schools and students around the world to participate in. The best thing about World Maths Day is that you don’t have to be a maths whiz to get involved. World Maths Day is designed for students of all ages and all levels of ability. Students are encouraged to ‘have a go’ and have fun learning and practising their maths with the Live Mathletics platform.
Powered by the award-winning team at 3P Learning, in association with UNICEF, it will be the world’s largest free online education competition. Points earned throughout the competition will be converted into UNICEF points, which go towards projects to ensure students all over the world have access to education.
Mathletics-subscribed schools are already registered to compete! For non-subscribed schools, registrations open on 7 February. Sign up at worldmathsday.com and get your students ready by participating in the event Warm Up, from 21 February. The World Maths Day competition will run for 48 hours – the event is live when it’s 7 March somewhere in the world.
An online Hall of Fame will track points throughout the competition with prizes to be awarded to the top students and schools. Trophies will be awarded to the Top Scoring School across all year group categories. Gold, silver and bronze medals will go to the Top Scoring Students in each year group category.
