Did you know that World Math Day is next Wednesday, March 3? Neither did I!
According to a story in The Washington Post, World Math Day is an opportunity for kids ages 5-18 to participate in a free real time competition with students from around the world to solve problems of varying levels of difficulty for all age groups.
To participate, students must sign up by this Monday, March 1st. After sign-up, students can practice the games right away for the real event on Wednesday, March 3.
The Washington Post article reported that there are more than 2 million kids representing 227 countries that have already registered and correctly answered 212 million questions! Like last year, the organizers are hoping to beat last year’s record where 2 million students from 204 countries correctly answered 452,681,681 questions.
Have plans on Wednesday that don’t involve being at home in front of the computer? Never fear…You can still participate through the free World Math Day App available on iTunes. As one friend says, this will give her kids the opportunity to tell her that they are really doing math when they are actually playing Doodle Jump!
If you want your child to practice their math skills in a free online environment while trying to set a new Guinness World Book record for the world’s largest online math contest, visit World Math Day to register today!
This year the competition is also open to teachers, parents, and the media for the very first time so you can finally determine if you are really smarter than your 5th grader!
