World Maths Day 2012 – It’s On!


Great for kids who hate maths, kids who love maths and all those in between, World Maths Day 2012  is on Wednesday 7th March.

If you’ve got kids aged from 4 to 18 years old, head on over to the World Maths Day website and get them signed up for free! Practice races are taking place right now! These fast paced 1 minute arithmetic races are almost guaranteed to get your child excited about maths!

In each race your child will compete against up to 3 other children of their own age  and ability from different countries around the world. There’s even free World Maths Day iPad and Android apps for maths racing on the go.

Around 5.5 million students are estimated to be taking part this year! Find out more details on the World Maths Day site or (read the post I wrote last year World Maths Day – A Step-by-Step Guide.)

Finally, the video below (from last year) is a quick 5 minute tour of  World Maths Day, showing you how to  get started (including how to sign up for the seriously challenging parent fun!)
