How Will It Work?
Register online. If you are already subscribed to Mathletics, you can use your existing username and password. You will take part in real-time mental arithmetic challenges and play live with other students around the globe. All you need is internet access.
Each game lasts for 60 seconds, and students can play up to 50 games, earning points for their personal tally. Students can play beyond 50 games during the event, but points will only count to the World Maths Day Mathometer, not their personal point score. The students who answer the most questions correctly appear on the Hall of Fame. There are 5 different levels of play, 10 challenges on each level.
The official World Maths Day competition begins with the first second of March 7 at midnight in Apia, Samoa, and continues as long as it is March 7 anywhere in the world. The total competition time is 48 hours.
