This is Noor-e-Hira Ahmer, the ambassador of World Maths Day here in Pakistan, reporting!
The amount of students seen in the Hall of Fame during the competition was highly meritorious. Seeing the green and white flag in the Hall of Fame proved to be a matter of honor and pride for the participants, their parents and of course, PAKISTAN but the official results are yet to be announced. *fingers crossed* The Mathometer, the Pledgometer and the unstoppable time along with the exhilaration was a THRILL.
World Maths Day ended with an above expected number of answers by students around the globe. This Global event gave me the prestigious duty of spreading the news of WMD and trust me I enjoyed a lot doing that!
- In the age category of 4-7 Zahid B was on the tenth position with an AWESOME score of 5554!
- In the age category of 8-10 Afnan A was on the twenty eighth position with 5146 points!
- In the age category of 11-13 Moosa F stood sixth with a total of 6940!
- In the age category of 14-18 Muneeb S secured the seventh position with a final score of 6033!
3 cheers guys and all the rest who were present in the top hundred !!!
World Maths Day has ended but I had the most fun days of my High School life answering questions in WMD and fulfilling my duties as an ambassador. I know you guys would also have enjoyed answering the thrilling one minute rounds which deeply checked our mental mathematical skills. I cannot wait for this time of the next year and I hope your feelings are mutual.
Wishing you good luck for the result!
I am writing this on behalf of our School, Pontllanfraith Comprehensive in the heart of the South Wales Valleys.
For two days now we have been totally focussed on one thing – WORLD MATHS DAY and we can only thank Mathletics for giving us this opportunity!
I am Kate M, aged 12 and was lucky enough to be asked as an Ambassador for Wales as I came first for our country in the UK maths challenge in November 2010.
My friend Hannah R who came 9th and I have nagged all pupils in yrs 7-9 to try and answer as many questions as possible in the two days. We have especially tried to get our maths class 8TL to try and repeat their superb performance in the UK challenge where they came first in Wales.
The competition has been really tough and we will not know how we have done until all the results have been finalised.
One thing is for sure, we will be back again next year!!!
Hi everyone, we are Sharon and Henry, and we are 10 year old twins who go to Chinese International School in Hong Kong. We’re delighted to be chosen to represent Hong Kong for the World Maths Day this year. It is the first year for both of us to be ambassadors for the World Maths Day and to participate too.
We are both busy designing a creative design for the TV screens around the school so everyone will have a chance to participate in the event and maybe even be an ambassador next year!
At our school, everyone has an account on Mathletics and it’s part of our homework too. The teachers at our school encourage us to go on Mathletics at least twice a week. Honestly, we think it should be at least 3 or 4 times instead of only 2 times because it helps us learn maths as well as lets us have fun competing with different people across the globe.
Now, our house is filled with sound of us and our 6 year old sister playing World Maths Day, trying to break records and practicing for the challenge. It isn’t just about winning, but more importantly, everyone should have fun.
That’s all for now, have fun and try your best!!
Hi, my name is Farah E and I am one of the ambassadors for Malaysia this year.
I am immensely grateful to have been given this opportunity this year. I hope everyone feels as exhilarated about the upcoming World Math Day as I do. To promote World Math Day in my school, the society clubs in my school have teamed up to design an official ‘World Math Day’ shirt for the entire student body to wear during the world math day competition to show our unity. For several weeks now, students have been thriving hard and working long hours each day to practice their speed and stealth for the upcoming World Math Day 2011 competition. Both students and teachers have been motivating each other and planning strategically on how to gain high scores for all levels in the competition. Students and teachers work together in doing their best to maintain the top position in the world as how our school has been doing so for the past two years. Students have been working hard and are preparing themselves to face the competition. I think both sides can agree when I say, ‘Us Cempakans will not go down without a challenge.
The countdown has begun! Our school has decided to observe the countdown to the World Maths Day! Mrs Jones from year 4 visited Sri Lanka last week to show them our presentation and the school has decided to take part in the World Maths Day challenge this year.
During this morning’s assembly, Sian, Oliver and myself presented a Powerpoint presentation about World Maths Day 2011. The presentation included what World Maths Day is all about and how popular it has been since it started in 2007. We are very excited to take part in World Maths Day!
Hi All from Oatlands in Dublin Ireland,
Here in Oatlands we are going mad with excitement for World Maths Day!! We have informed the fourth and fifth class about World Maths Dayand have encouraged them to take part. Tomorrow we have worked out a timetable so that our school is playing at all times throughout the day. We have uploaded pictures of our posters to our website which is, if you’ve forgotten, www.worldmathsdaydublin.webs.com. Meanwhile outside the school we are getting students from other schools involved. You’ll be hearing more from me in a while!
Hi! I am Caleb L, Ambassador of UAE. I am 11 years old and have two older sisters and one younger brother. I love constructive challenges, fair competition, learning, people, and of course MATH.
The World Math Day (WMD) Competition has all these combinations and I am very excited for this year’s competition. For last two years, our school held WMD Camp where we got to stay with our friends for two nights playing the math game and having lots of fun. This year, 100 students will participate in WMD Sleepover Camp at our school.
Usually, we eat like five star hotel buffet and lots of homemade cookies and plenty of juicy fruits donated by a wonderful, dedicated parent.
I am thankful that I have a teacher like Mr. Blair who is so dedicated to students’ success and loves “Mathletics Program”. I am glad that this year, we can also help out under privileged students by finding sponsors during World Maths Day. What a triple blessing it is that we get to play fun math games and also help other students around the world. Best wishes to all the children of the world who are uniting in numbers. As my daddy always says that it’s not about result but the process we go through that forms what kind of person we become.
This is Punit S – one of the ambassadors for England. I am really excited to be an ambassador and I look forward for the challenges in World Maths Day 2011.
We have been promoting WMD in various ways at the Cooper School. We are going to run an inter-house competition for the WMD at our school which will encourage students to score more and more points. We have also been busy putting posters around the Cooper School promoting the World Maths day this year. Soon we will start a lunchtime club for any students who want to practice for the big challenge…
And Of course, don’t forget to join the Facebook page I created for the World Maths Day 2011…
All the best Mathletes,
And Keep practising…
I’m David and it is great to be selected as an Australian ambassador for World Maths Day this year. It was also fun to finally meet all the other Australia Ambassadors when we all went to Sydney last weekend. While we were there, we stayed Vibe which is a hotel right near the Sydney Harbour Bridge. We also had dinner at a restaurant which backed onto Luna Park. We also spent the second day at 3P learning which is on the top floor (18th) of an office block where it was fun to meet all the people who created the website which we all enjoy and have so much fun on. My personal favourite there was the clocks on the wall which told the time of all the different places where 3P Learning has their offices. Then we visited Hamish’s school where we received our engraved IPod Touch’s and it was so cool to see so many kids all excited about World Maths day and to meet Adam Spencer who is not only a brilliant mathematician but a Sydney radio personality. In general it was an awesome weekend and I was glad to be a part of it.
I hope all you guys have fun practicing for WMD and good luck to all of you for the actual day.
Bye for now,
