Interview with my Coordinator and myself:
Concurso de matemáticas
My teacher’s interview:
Guatemaltecos lideran Olimpiada Mundial de Matemáticas
The 2010 WMD ended, but most people in Guatemala still want to know about it.
There is a lot of media interest in it, and we will share the information with them.
This still doesn’t end to Guatemala. It is just the beginning!
On Monday March 8 , we were invited to Radio Universidad ( University Radio) http://radiou.usac.edu.gt/ to the program ¡Así es la Vida! (Such is Life!) It was great!
My teachers who accumulated a lot of points came too!
This was a new and really nice experience.
Adriana D the girl who appears as number 37 in the Hall of Fame in the 9-13 category also joined us.
I hope you enjoyed the 2010WMD. Let’s look forward to making next year’s even better!
Please do consider Guatemala as a destination for your next vacation and come and visit my school!
Hi guys, Jackalyn C from Hong Kong speaking here…
I went to Shanghai for a trip from May 20th to May 22nd. I always ask questions so that I will learn more. So, I asked my mother on the airplane, “If I have 100 Chinese Yuan, how much is that in Hong Kong dollars?” My mom did not know how to answer me. So I tried to figure it out by myself, using Maths, of course. (The answer is $115).
When we were on the airplane, I looked at my watch and remembered the time. When the plane landed, I looked at my watch again and calculated the time. I just love using Maths to solve problems.
On Monday, our year level went to the park in Kowloon Tong to study about Chinese history.
Engaging my Math’s brain, I calculated the time from when we left school to when we returned. We returned 1 hour early because of all the mosquito bites on my classmates’ hands and legs! I asked my teacher, Mr. Rowse, so many times to let me take a picture of him in front of the mighty canon (real one). But, sadly there was no time. Below is a picture of me in front of the canon, with a surprised face!
Hi guys, doesn’t time past quickly! Because now it is my 2nd blog!
Over these last few weeks, I’ve had friends who asked me problems and then – you know what I used to solve it? – MATHS! Our school had a World Classroom trip. It’s when we go to different countries on an airplane, without our parents. I had to use Maths to help me calculate how much money I had used and how much I had left! Below is a picture of me in Taiwan with (a fake) Mona Lisa!
On World Maths Day, I had the experience of how to be brave to stand up and speak in front of many people. I walked around the school for about an hour going in and out of classrooms, I talked about World Maths Day and its website. Being an ambassador is certainty not easy. Maths is fun and exciting! Speed is not the importance of Maths but accuracy! Keep on playing, I’ll join in as soon as possible!
Wait for my 3rd blog! See you then! Below is a picture of my class having a good time in Taiwan in front of the Jiang Jie Shi Memorial Hall.
Recently, Iain Smith (3P Learning’s National Manager for Scotland) attended a special assembly held at Hamilton College Junior School to present J7 pupil Olivia G with a certificate and an iPod touch to commemorate her term as our UK Mathletics Ambassador.
Well done to Olivia and her team – they did a great job to raise awareness of Mathletics, putting posters up around the school and the local area and featured on REAL Radio on the morning of World Maths Day.
Well done everyone for breaking last year’s record! I think we all did very well. I’d like to congratulate my fellow team Australia ambassadors Kaya G, for coming 1st in the 9-13 year old catagory and Tatiana D, for coming 2nd in the 14-18 year old. well done!
After all this excitement, I think I need to relax a bit or maybe I should do more maths homework for next year’s World Maths Day event.
I wish every one good luck for next year and may we break this year’s record next year.
Adrian E, World Maths Day Ambassador
Just a quick thank you to the organizers for World Math Day! Our carnival was awesome! “Math is fun!” was the biggest comment from the participants.
“It was all about math and it was good!”
“Math is exciting”.
“We learned we need math for a lot of things”.
“It was nice of [the grade fours] to help us with our math”
“It was worth missing our gym class”
“The questions were fun!” said the grade two class.
Top Northland School Division No. 61 prizes are: $100 for top score in each of the four divisions, $75 for second in each of the four divisions and $50 for third in each of the four divisions. [With prize money from our AISI grant]. News about the winners coming soon!!
I was flown to Calgary and had dinner with the other ambassadors from Canada and it was really cool! We went everywhere in a white limousine and had dinner at the Calgary Tower! Did you know that it spins around when you eat? I met people from Ontario and Alberta and Saskatchewan. We went to Breakfast TV where two of the ambassadors got to go on TV and play on the World Math Day site. We went to a school and we practiced on their computers for World Math Day. After that we went to dinner in the Calgary Tower. I had soup and fries. We were close to the windows and I could look outside when we ate. The trip was exciting.
As ambassador, it has been a lot of work but it also has been fun. I hope you enjoyed World Math Day.
Mathletics Ambassador for Northland School Division No. 61, Alberta, Canada
When it comes to mathematics, Hervey Bay student David Andersen is in a class of his own and on top of the world for Australia.
The 15-year-old Fraser Coast Anglican College student is a dual world champion after retaining the World Maths Day title he won last year.

World math day was really just fantastic!! I thought Kaya G. did fantastically this year winning World Maths Day for the second time in a row!
We broke the record for most participants in the World Maths Day… again.
Thanks for everyone who participated!
I hope to see everybody again next year.
World Maths Day is over, and we broke the the record !!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks everyone for uniting together and helping us to reach this great milestone on World Maths Day.
Everyone at my school was involved on the day, with each class taking a turn to make the total higher.
It doesn’t matter if you only answered 1 or 2 questions because for all we know it might of been that 1 or 2 questions that helped us beat the world record. I’m sure everyone had a great time. Isn’t it cool how, when you you think about it, that you made a contribution to this record ? So, keep practising your Mathletics for next year. See you then !!!!!!
Hey guys, how are you all? I hope you guys hadn’t stayed up too late to compete in the world Maths day competition during the 48 hours period. First of all, the best congratulations to all participants for trying hard and I think, a lot of certificates are being given away for accomplishing 4000 points. Also I would say the greatest congratulations to all winners from each age group. I’m very impressed with all your scores. How could you guys calculate while typing the answers so fast??
And don’t worry, I didn’t forget to congratulate all the ambassadors from all the different countries as well, because we all contributed in helping advertising this event so that it had made it into the Guinness World Records!!
Although I felt that the questions in this year’s world maths day were a little harder than the previous year’s, I felt that it made it an even more challenge instead of playing only easy maths that we already know how to do. So it actually improved people’s math skills even more while playing games.
I’m very happy that the number of correct answers achieved in this year’s world maths day has beaten the number of correct answers from last year. This proves that the world has been united in numbers. And I hope the event will be even bigger next year, because this year’s number has set the bar so high, for the event in 2011.
Well, I hope to see you all next year! While setting even higher high scores
