World Math Day--March 7, 2012

World Math Day Button

These World Math Day Buttons give you the opportunity to let your junior mathematicians proudly show off their participation in the program... and they're budget-priced!

We really like World Math Day and the Mathletics website.  I shared about it a couple of years ago HERE.  It's designed for ages 4-18.  This year, they are even adding an adult age category!

You compete in 60 second rounds against either the computer or other players from around the world.  To me, that is one of the coolest parts.  During the day, you usually run into players from the States or Canada, but later in the day and evening, you start playing Australians and Chinese students!  It's run to learn geography and math at the same time.

I can also say that this is the one math site of which mija never grows tired!  The practice month and World Math Day are free.  The practice month starts today, February 1, but you can start anytime this month or only for the World Math Day.  I suggest using it for all its worth while it's free!  A couple of days after World Math Day, the site will return to being fee based.  They do, however, usually offer a nice discount to those who participated in World Math Day.

Something new they are also doing is World Spelling Day on March 6th.  We've never done that before, but all the information about it looks similar.  Practice sign up for that starts today, Feb. 1, as well.  We might try that this year, too.

Come join the fun!  Who knows?  Maybe we'll all end up playing together!
