Posts Tagged ‘World Maths Day 2010 Congratulations!’
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
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
Pyong H from New Zealand here.
Arriving home from school I was astonished to see the NEW WORLD MATHS DAY RECORD. 479,732,613 total correct answers. What an fantastic 48 hours it was! It was so cool seeing many different countries competing all together. It was a really exciting opportunity for me, as well as time of fun. I hope everyone had great time, and really enjoyed the World Maths Day comp!!! Congratulations to Kaya G who came 1st in my age group.
I hope to see you next year, where we can aim for a NEW World Maths Day record!!!
I hope you all enjoyed taking part in World Maths Day as much as everyone I know did!

Congrats to all, and thanks for helping us reach a new record!
I just had to drop a short line to say how enormously proud I am of all of the Asian Mathletes who contributed to dominate the top of the medal board for the World Maths Day competition in 2010.
The fact that 3 of the top 4 positions on the medal tally are taken by students and schools in the Asian Territory is nothing short of fantastic!
I have to say that I should have known that this might have been the case as I visited schools in Singapore, Malaysia, China and Hong Kong in the lead up to World Maths Day to distribute iPod touches to Ambassadors and to speak to teachers and students. Without exception every school that I visited was buzzing with anticipation of the event. It was an absolute pleasure to see these excited, intelligent students keen to get on board.
You have all done a fabulous job.
Congratulations to all participants and especially to the very successful Asian Mathletes!
Congratulations to everyone and their efforts this World Maths Day. It was great seeing so many countries and students participating well and with enthusiasm. Well done to Kaya G for being world Champion second year in a row, and well done to everyone who participated and made it a great event.
See you all round next year!
