Failsworth Sports College World Maths Day 2010 site offers a short video of third graders in contest mode! You’ll see their smiles and agonies as they race through problems and get instant results. (Yes, maths is correct in the UK and Europe.)
Kudos, World Maths Day organizers for demonstrating the level of academic performance possible for young people.
Boot up those Tablet PCs, students, and practice, practice, practice math. Some may find MathPractice a useful software program for that practice. It’s a free download.
Register starting February 1, 2010 for World Maths Day 2010 in March.
