Do your children regard math as irksome and tedious? Prove to them that math is fun and exciting! Especially when it’s applied online and with a cheerful crowd of peers! World Maths Day, an online educational event taking place March 3 at worldmathsday.com, may be of help with this.
This online project was created by 3P Learning for school students aged 5-18. World Maths Day allows participants to “compete in real time to correctly answer mental arithmetic questions in quick-fire 60 second games,” describes voxy.co.nz.
Last year, this online activity brought together about 2 million students from 204 countries. World Maths Day 2010 will try “to set a Guinness World Record for the Largest Online Maths Competition,” said a representative of the event’s creator.
Don’t worry if it is too late for your child to register this year: World Maths Day has big plans for March 2011. And keep in mind: kids are always welcome to improve their skills at fun and exciting math using a free educational online game… Driving Kids!
