Hooray! World Educational Games is now open for pre-registration!
One of my favorite enrichment activities for my students is to enrol them in World Maths Day. 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. Over 5.5 million students from 200 countries are expected to participate in 2012!
World Maths Day is one of three events that make up World Educational Games. The other two events offered are World Spelling Day and World Science Day.
This year the competitions take place March 6 – 8, 2012. Registrations and practice open on 1 February 2012.

My students find this a major highlight of our mathematics program!
