Wow, it is amazing how over 200 countries unite together to set a math world record. While many of today's students think math is just another lame and boring subject they would rather not do each day, but it is so much more and I am super excited to participate in world math day.

MATH RULES!!! :c)

World Maths Day seem like a really cool thing. # 1 you get to compeat online with students from 200 other countries. # 2 some kids really don't like math because it can be hard, but World Maths Day is a way for kids who maybe don't enjoy math to see it in a different way. They will see that it can be fun if you tell yourself it is. Also it can help with learning because if the students get excited about World Maths Day they will want to work harder in math to win more games. Thats what I would do.
I like caribou, another math contest. It is put on by Brock University and is challenging, but I like to see how many questions I can get right.

I think that this video truly shows us how much math matters. The World Maths Day sounds like a great way to have fun while challenging us to expand on our math skills. The fact that over 200 countries compette in this competition is amazing, because when everyone says math isn't fun, these kids are finding new ways to become greater at math and I think that we should all do this competition if it really incourages us like this.

Second i think that you need to have a some good math skills.

World math day is a great was to use your math skills in a positive way. World math day will help students all over the world have fun with math. Students who regularly don't like math might enjoy a friendly competition. Also, kids might be really excited to set a record. I think if we all work together and set a goal we might just acomplish what we set out to do. Another thing is, 200 countries is a big acomplishment and over 2000 students is fasinating. Setting the record will be a victory we can all be proud of. World math day is not just a day we all do matyh. It is a day we all work together to acomplish a goal.

World mats day seems to be really fun because you can compete with kids from Japan to Germany. It also doesn't look to hard to do because all you do is addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.( I wonder if one of my second cousins in Romania will be competing!)

World Maths Day, the time to show math skills worldwide! I think that this is a very unique contest, and to have it going on in over 200 countries is crazy! Furthermore, I was surprised when I found out that there is a champion every year, you could be famous! Even if you don't win, it is a fun way to do math! This is a good way to help people who don't like math by teaching them the fun way!!

Natasha said...

I think World Math Day sounds like fun! It great for two reasons. First, it is a great way to practise your math skills. Second, you get to compete against other countries. Like the video said, a lot of countries and over a million participants. I can't wait until March 1st!

Gage said...

Really cool, interesting and it looks fun too. Another thing is it gives you a chance to get better at math and meet people in other countries. Plus I saw Griff do it and I tryed it once. It was fun.

Gabriel said...

MFS said...

From watching that short video on the blog I am feeling quite optimistic about participating in World Math Day. I think our classs will have to practise addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Also I think we would have to have fast fingers and reflexes to do exceptionally well.

taylor said...

Julia said...

There are many ways a we can preppare for world math day such as doing extra mad minutes, worksheets at home, studying textbooks even playing games like multiplication (card game). Even if you wanted caribou could probably help a little!

Amy said...

Ops! I forgot to answer the real question. So... I could prepare for world maths day by playing online math games or playing math related games at home and school like flash cards and math worksheets.

Hey guys. Katie here. You guys all know me, right? OK, so here's the scoop on World Maths Day. All I can say is it rocks!!!! Anyway, you can choose division, multiplication, addition, or subtraction. But a really cool part is that you get to create your own avatar that shows what country you are from. We had some pretty crazy ones when I was in grade 5. Anyhow, this is fun: you even get a certificate in the end. So good luck to all and to all good luck! :-)
