This competition is open to UK, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia schools with a Mathletics subscription. Schools must be registered for the competition to be eligible for prizes.

Winners will be determined by the highest average of total participation points in a school. This will be calculated by taking the total number of participation points divided by the total number of registered students in the school.

To allow fair competition between schools of different sizes, class points are calculated on an “average points per student” basis. For example, a school of 500 registered students scores a total of 1,000,000 points during the competition. Their league table ranking would be based on an average of 2,000 points per student.

Points from Live Mathletics and Curriculum Activities will be awarded to students individually and are only recorded throughout the competition period listed below:

Monday March 2nd 00:01am (UTC) – Competition opens

Sunday March 8th 11:59pm (UTC) – Competition ends

Students earn 1 point per correct answer, or 2 points if they have selected their bonus level.

By completing activities in the ‘Learn’ area, students earn 10 points per correct answer, with a maximum of 300 points from any individual activity during the competition period.

The 1st place school will receive £500/ €500/ $650/ R9,000 off their Mathletics renewal, plus Mathletics goodies including a trophy, posters and wristbands. There are also prizes for 2nd and 3rd place schools.

Once the March Maths Challenge 2020 has ended, all results will be verified by the Mathletics team. Upon completion of verification, the winners will be announced on the Challenge website and via email. All results as determined by the Mathletics team are final.

Registration officially closes on March 1st 2020.
