Today is World Maths Day / Please try Web-based Maths Activities at Home

Dear Parents,

The children have been enthusiastically participating in the World Maths Day web-based event. To access this website from home you should use the login information that is attached to your child's journal. Many children know the login information by heart as they have been preparing for weeks for this event.

To fully participate in the event your child has to complete 50 trials scattered across 5 different skill levels. Each trial lasts about 1 minute. The children had half an hour to try to complete the trials in the computer room but they will need some time at home if they wish to compete in all 5 skill levels.

If a child finds a certain skill level too difficult there is no need to complete the trials of that level. They should be competing in the levels that they feel comfortable with as it is very important to have fun and celebrate Maths during this event.

You could register yourself as an adult and give these activities a try. It is really fun to be competing against people from all over the world.

Enjoy World Maths Day,

Oscar
