World Maths Day

Tomorrow I will be sending home information and individual passwords for World Maths Day, it is a free, voluntary, fun activity. I will show students how to start the game tomorrow in class. World Maths Day is an online competetion that takes place on March 3rd. It is the world’s largest education event where students compete in real time against other students from around the world, using the World Maths Day website.

In 2010, World Maths Day will be held on Wednesday 3rd March 2010, and more than two million students between 5-18 years from more than 200 countries are expected to log on take part in the free global event. Johannesburg will be flying the flag as host city for the 2010 event.

The best thing about World Maths Day is that you don’t have to be a mathematical genius to get involved. World Maths Day is designed for students of all ages, backgrounds, and all levels of ability. Students are encouraged to get involved in maths and ‘have a go’, and even have the chance to be a part of setting a world record – it’s free and all you need is internet access.
