World Maths Day

Update
On the World Education Games Website we can see the following message:
The World Education Games will be taking a break in 2014 from official competition and will return in 2015. Watch this space for news on events that will take place in 2014.

If you enjoy games of this kind Sumdog and Tutpup are free all year round. For other free Number games see this page also this page on games collections; the collections from Math Playground and that from Oswego City School District are particularly good for mental arithmetic. For practise at tables, including against the clock see this collection.

Manga High have recently added a multi-player option to Sundae Times which tests multiplication from 1×1 to 15×15  – play other students from round the world!

Maths Careers Site – Competitions

Note these particular competitions are now closed but keep an eye out for others and do have a look at the Maths Careers website – it is excellent.

UK students for a chance to win a £100 Amazon voucher and have your poster displayed on the Maths Careers website design an A4 poster about a famous mathematician from the past. Prizes will be awarded in two categories – ages 11-13 and ages 14-16. The closing date is 13th January 2012.

Full details are available on the Maths Careers website.

Older students (ages 17 – 19) may be interested in the Article Competition, the closing date for this competition is also 13th January 2012.

Sumdog – numeracy games

 

Sumdog has many games to help you practise a variety of numeracy topics at 10 different levels.

Your teacher may have created school logins for your class, if not you can register yourself or just play as a guest.

Once you have logged in or chosen to play as a guest you can have a look at all the games and make your choice.

If you feel a little insecure on topics like directed numbers (many students do) you may find this a great way to practise.
