Registrations are now open for Mathletics’ first Tri-Nations Challenge. The free to enter Mathletics competition between schools from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa will take place online from 14-20 August.
The Mathletics Tri-Nations Challenge is open to students from Kindergarten to Year 10, with engaging activities appropriate for all year levels. There will be two rounds preceded by a training week.
Rebekah O’Flaherty, CEO & Executive Director at 3P Learning said: “The Tri-Nations Challenge is a new and exciting online maths competition that provides a great way to have a bit of fun while improving mathematical fluency for primary and secondary students. It also creates a sense of community as each student earns participation points that count not only towards their personal points total but that of their school.
Mathletics has provided free resources to ensure all students can take part in the challenge:
