(Pardon me for not making this “pretty” but I’m in haste and don’t have time for niceties. This is good news and I wanted to get it out as soon as possible so you could read it in time to register for this fun and free online event.)
The deadline to register for World Math Day (also known as World Maths Day) has been extended!
To register, go to the website below:
(Just a little background: This year’s TOS Crew got to try, for free, a subscription to mathletics.com–a website that reinforces math learning and provides fun drill activities. The same folks sponsor World Math Day, a worldwide math contest where students practice their math facts — addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division — by running math races against other students all over the world. The goal is to do math, have fun, and set a new Guiness world record for number of math problems solved in a 48 hour period.)
