This is Sai, the 2011 Japanese Ambassador,
Wishing all the children across the world best of wishes. I am currently in India as I have relocated from Tokyo and it is amazing to see great minds playing such a challenging game with high spirits. This platform has also given me many wonderful friends!!!
I again wish everyone best of luck for the World Maths Day competition especially Moosa F from Pakistan, Mason F from New Zealand, Harish S from India and David M from Spain for being such great competitors.
You guys rock!
The Australian World Maths Day ambassador from Melbourne, Victoria also backed up on the score board with strong results for both World Maths Day and World Spelling Day.
Tatiana D placed 2nd in World Maths Day and 3rd in World Spelling Day in Australia for her division (14 – 18 years), and was recognised for her efforts with a medal presentation at her school assembly.
Tatiana placed 25th on the global WMD Hall of Fame and equal 83rd in the global World Spelling Hall of Fame. We know how tough it can be to get within the global top 100 so Tatiana is to be congratulated on her solid performance in the first ever World Education Games. We wish Tatiana all the best for her final year of school!
World Education Games representative Jenny Fahey, travelled to Japan last week to meet and thank some of the 2011 Japanese World Maths Day student ambassadors. The get together included:
- Sai M of India International School in Japan – 2nd in World Maths Day, 8-10 age division.
- Rohith N of Global Indian International School – 5th in World Maths Day, 8-10 age division.
- Graham P – Japanese World Maths Day ambassador from Tokyo International School.
- Sean R – Japanese World Maths Day ambassador from Nishimachi International School.
Well done to all 4 of the students pictured above, for helping make World Maths Day the great event that it is.
I just wanted to say thanks to all the people at World Maths Day for giving me the opportunity to represent New South Wales as an ambassador for World Maths Day 2011. I learnt a lot, got to meet Adam Spencer, go to the Sydney Apple store and best of all I had a really wonderful time. I had my photo in the local paper, and well, I can’t forget about the iPod. I will remember the experience for a long time.
Thanks to everyone who helped and contributed. I think that World Maths Day is a great event, and I am looking forward to World Maths Day 2012!
I’m going to end up our blog conversation with another brief summary of our prolific efforts in promoting World Maths Day. I believe all of you are very much aware of Pakistan’s progress in the World Maths Day and I feel proud to represent my country in this online mega event! Children from around the world indeed enjoyed this event and played to the fullest!
So what if you did not win. So what if you did not appear in the Hall of Fame.
At least, you got to be a part of such a prestigious Global event in which 218 countries took part and 5.3 million children registered themselves.
I sincerely and deeply thank Mathletics, the team that was behind all this!
Hoping to be a part of World Maths Day 2012 and breaking our own records while uniting the world in numbers!
Hope you all had heaps of fun taking part in the World Education Games this year! It was great to read about some of the events that took place in some of the ambassador’s schools, and I hope that you all had fun taking part in one way or another. I think that the World Education Games’ partnership with UNICEF is terrific; hopefully we will have raised a substantial amount of money this year to fund education projects in Vietnam and Mozambique, which will help break the cycle of poverty.
I would like to congratulate the four World Champions Eric Z, Mason F, Kaya G and David A for their fantastic efforts this year in World Maths Day. I am also particularly thrilled that all four of them came from the Oceanic region, and three of them from Australia! It looks like the countries “down under” are truly a force to be reckoned with! Speaking of countries from the Asia-Pacific, congratulations to Malaysia and particularly students from the Cempaka Schools who absolutely dominated the Hall of Fame in the 14-18 category! You all did an amazing job!
I would also like to particularly congratulate fellow Australian Ambassadors David and Kaya for retaining their titles for three years running! What an incredible achievement! Congratulations must also go to Joseph who came 15th in the 11-13 category, and Mr Rod G (teacher of Australian Ambassador Afzal) from Stromlo High School who came 13th in the teachers category! Congratulations guys!
Congratulations also to Zeeruk S, Dylan C, George W and Phoebe M who are the first ever World Champions of World Spelling Day! The scores that all of these spellers posted were phenomenal, and they are very deserving of their titles.
On March 1st I felt privileged to join the awesome Chadstone Apple Store team to get Victorian kids excited about World Maths Day! It was great to feel the competitiveness in the air as students from a number of schools battled against their classmates to break their high score on Macs, iPhones, iPod touches and iPads, with the highest-scoring students winning iTunes store vouchers! I had a great time!
I really enjoyed taking part this year (like I do every year!) and it was particularly great to see some familiar names on the Hall of Fame. I am very, very sad that this was my last year of competing and being an ambassador; I have always thoroughly enjoyed this unique challenge of mental arithmetic ability, concentration and strategy and I have benefited in so many different ways as a result of it. I can safely say that taking part has been a life-changing experience for me, and I strongly encourage anyone who is still able to take part next year to do so! An absolutely huge thank-you must go to the World Education Games team for putting so much time and effort into making World Maths Day and World Spelling Day take place. They were both sensational events, and I know that a lot of students around the world enjoyed it immensely.
I sincerely hope that you all have had a fantastic time taking part in the World Education Games this year, and I wish you all the very best for the coming years!!!!!!!
Carrying out the role as an ambassador was a great opportunity. In our opinion the best thing about being an ambassador was going on the morning television show ‘Daybreak’ where we were lucky enough to meet lots of celebrities.
We also really enjoyed being on the ‘World Maths Day’ Leader board and people knowing who we were!
World Maths Day was fantastic again this year, we were really honoured to represent our country and would love the opportunity to be ambassadors again.
WE WOULD LIKE TO SAY A BIG THANK YOU TO MATHLETICS FOR GIVING US THIS OPPORTUNITY. We would also like to say THANK YOU for our IPODS! This was such a surprise, we still can’t believe our luck. Mr Daniel came into our school assembly to present us with our prizes, here is a picture of us receiving them!
So thank you again.
Signing out for the last time,
Zoë and Lance
Well, World Maths Day is over, and I hope everyone had a lot of fun participating. I know everyone in my grade here at St. Catherine of Siena did.
My school did a lot of things leading for World Math day. We took a survey of what kinds of pets everyone has. Then we made a graph to show the information. We also had everyone in St. Catherine’s here in Horsham wear a t-shirt from a state in the U.S. The 5th grade made a graph to show how many states were represented. The graph is hanging outside our computer lab.
On World Math Day, my teacher and I got interviewed for the newspaper, the Public Spirit. The article is scheduled to print on Friday, March 11. While the 7th grade competed in World Math Day, we got filmed for the evening news!! Everyone in my grade was super excited for that. While playing we called out different countries that people were playing came from. It was a lot of fun.
On Friday, March 4, I had the opportunity to be interviewed on live TV by our local NBC station about World Math Day. That was an exciting experience.
Hi again everyone,
What a blast! World Maths Day was great, at my school everyone who had maths on Tuesday played WMD. I stayed on for two hours at school and then another hour at home. I completed all of my games which I’m glad about. Congratulations to all the Aussie winners, Eric Z, Kaya G and David A. Well Done! Also to Mason F from NZ. A massive 5.3 million people registered for this event which is amazing! Also a total of 428,598,214 correct answers were answered which is just phenomenal. Congratulations to all who made it on the leader board, everyone who completed all the games and everyone who just had ago.
Hope to see you guys all next year,
Hi, my name is Sean R. I had a very good time being a World Maths Day Ambassador for my school. For World Maths Day, my team and I were able to reserve the computer lab for 30 minutes before school and an hour after school. This was a good idea because it encouraged some students to participate in World Maths Day, particularly after school.
We gave a speech to all the elementary school classes and the kindergarten classes about World Maths Day. We did this the day before World Maths Day started. We talked about when World Maths Day began and ended, and we encouraged all students to take part in this wonderful activity. We think it was a good choice to talk to all the students the day before World Maths Day because it helped the students to remember when World Maths Day started, and therefore they would probably be more likely to get involved with World Maths Day.
In addition, we gave a presentation to the whole elementary school students and the teachers at our elementary school assembly on the Wednesday before World Maths Day.
I feel that being World Maths Day Ambassador was a once in a life time experience and I enjoyed it a lot. I am thankful for the opportunity to do this important job. I would love to be World Maths Day Ambassador again next year!
