Dear Mathematicians,

The 5th International superTmatik Mental Maths Competition is looking for the world's best mental maths pupils for several different categories (6-15 years old).

This is an international mathematics competition for primary and secondary school students, combining mental challenge with play, has been instrumental in helping students overcome traditional obstacles in learning mathematics.

The central principle of this championship is to develop student competence in mathematics from the start of schooling by constructive play, thereby motivating and involving them in the learning process. The main objectives of the championship are to: promote interest in mental maths; develop skills in number and mental maths; reinforce the learning of mathematics through play; and discover and celebrate talent in mental calculation.

superTmatik =  Differentiation in teaching + Greater motivation + ICT in the classroom +  FUN

For your students to participate, all you need to do is to register your school for entry into the competition - no fees. Once your school has been registered, the next step is to teach students how to play the game and allow them to practise with their peers. The initial stages of the competition are played within the school, and the names of the school finalists are then sent to the game organisers to be entered to play in the National and International Online competition. If your school does not have a mental maths game, you can acquire a superTmatik mental maths card game free of charge. That is all you need to get started! Your students can also practise online. This is a brilliant way to include both ICT and fun activities in your teaching programme.

superTmatik Mental Math Game is a mathematical card game played in schools since 2005.

Best known as "SUPER T", this mental math game has proven to successfully engage students in grades 1 through 9. The appealing game dinamics, graphics, "Super-Leters", "Super-Stars" and the five-level selector hold children’s attention. Since the first edition in March 2005, teachers use this mental math game as a tool to make math appealing and fun with excelent results.

In 2007 EUDACTICA publishers, created the International superTmatik Mental Maths Competition, a contest based in the superTmatik card game. This contest has become a key event in the teaching of mathematics. The central principle of this championship is for students to develop basic competence in mathematics from the beginning of their schooling through constructive play, interesting and involving them in it via a fun way of learning. The widespread adoption of this innovative educational game by schools, combining mental challenge and play, has been instrumental in overcoming traditional obstacles many students have in mathematics.

The main objectives of the championship are to: - promote interest in mental maths; - develop skills in number and mental maths; - reinforce the learning of mathematics through play; - discover and publicise talent in mental calculation.

The superTmatik deck consists of 54 cards, on the face of each card, there are ten maths calculations, which are identified by letters A - J. Letter A is always an addition, B is always a subtraction, C is an addition followed by a subtraction, and so on. On the reverse of each card are answers for the maths calculations on the front of the card; “Super-Letter” or “Super-Star”; a five-level selector. Players must try to work out the answers more quickly than their opponentto(to answer, you must call out SUPER T, and then give the answer)
