World Math Day 2009 Internet Project

Today the students of Chaparral participated in World Math Day 2009.

We played several rounds at school, and many students are planning to continue the Internet game at home. Each round is one minute long. Each of four players is trying to beat the other three opponents by completing the most problems in 60 seconds.

Each player creates their own avatar.

We kept track of the countries we were competing against.

So far we have played students from: USA, Canada, Spain, Switzerland, South Africa, New Zealand, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Netherlands, Ireland, Lebanon, Costa Rica, United Kingdom, Guatemala, Germany, Poland, Romania, Pakistan, China, Hong Kong, Egypt, Thailand, Ghana, Turkmenistan, Qatar, Brazil, and Finland.

  4. Dear Mrs. Yollis,
    The math day website is great. Shane is addicted to it. What am I suppose to say,"Shane your doing too much math". He loves it. What a great way to motivate kids to do math. Hopefully, they will be able to continue using this site.
    Thanks for all you do,
    Dana Fausner

    I am so proud of you. You are doing so great on the math day website. It is really neat to watch you enjoy doing something where you are also learning.
