Today is world maths day!
It is celebrated on the first Wednesday every March as a means of celebrating education and helping people develop their numeracy skills. A full explanation of the day is available at Wikipedia.
More than a million students have registered online to be part of the celebrations at mathletics. During the day, students can log in and be paired with a student somewhere in the world for fun competitions in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
So why not celebrate maths day today, too? It’s doesn’t just have to be for the kids – play a game of sokudo or monopoly, relearn a times table, improve your skills online, do some mental arithmetic (maybe total the shopping before you reach the registers), play games online or think about maths in our daily lives.
And if your child needs a little help with their maths, today is a great day to check out options such as Maths Power.
