March 1st is World Maths Day. What is that, you ask? World Maths Day is an online mental arithmetic game.
From the World Maths Day website:
Students play at home and at school against other students around the world in live games of mental arithmetic. Each game lasts for 60 seconds and students can play up to 100 games, earning points for their personal tally. There are 5 levels of play, 20 games on each level.
We welcome school aged children and homeschoolers to register and participate. It’s a great way to improve numeracy and mental arithmetic skills and have fun in the process.
… and it’s absolutely free of charge!
World Maths Day was originally created for students aged 4 – 18 years, but this year and adult’s age category (19 – 119 years) has been added, although the adults are not eligible for prizes.
