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.
More information and registration forms are available on the competition website: www.mentalmathcompetition.com.
