The primary kids loved it. They are already asking me if they can sign up for next year. Thank you so much to you and the team behind this competition for hours of fun.
I want to thank you for the excellent challenge, organisation, webinars, and above all, the opportunity to use Mathletics, we never used before, a great platform, a lot of possibilities to provide to our students an Amazing Learning.
(The best thing was) The fact that we got to compete with so many people around the world – it was a pretty thrilling experience – we all kept trying to one-up each other to see who would get more points in our class.
