### World Math Day

World Math Day is coming soon, on March 1, 2011. You need to register beforehand, before February 28.

(Since math is spelled in two different ways (math or maths) around the world, they even have two different websites, www.worldmathday.com and www.worldmathsday.com, but both are the same thing.)

It's a fun worldwide event where students from across the globe compete against each other in answering math facts.

Schools, students, and homeschoolers can all participate! Just remember to register first. After registering, you can practice on the website before the actual contest day.

**What is World Math Day?**It's a fun worldwide event where students from across the globe compete against each other in answering math facts.

Students play at home and at school against other students around the world in live games of mental arithmetic. Each game lasts for 60 seconds and students can play up to 100 games, earning points for their personal tally. Students can play beyond 100 games during the event, but points will only count to the World Maths Day Mathometer, not their personal point score. The students who answer the most questions correctly appear on the Hall of Fame. There are 5 different levels of play, 20 games on each level.

Schools, students, and homeschoolers can all participate! Just remember to register first. After registering, you can practice on the website before the actual contest day.
