World Book Day Problems – Laura Rees-Hughes

One week later, Thursday, March 14th is World Maths Day (it’s also Pi Day!)
Register here and you will receive an email with a link to download the competition pack.  Once registered you will receive further emails and instructions. This year, under GDPR regulations schools will need to upload their students; full instructions will be provided, including a walk-through video link. Students will be able to use Mathletics for the whole of March. In addition to the Competition Pack Further Resources are provided including a Mathletics welcome guide.

The event runs at any time of the day on Thursday 14th March. Unlike in previous years, start and finish times are not stated for various cities around the world. The Competition pack states “Don’t worry if you can’t join in on the 14th, simply run your competition on a different day ….”
Schools are encouraged to run their own in school competitions. The competition pack includes instructions, suggestions and certificates.

Speaking of “Two Things”, have a look at this quick, no quiz retrieval Strategy from Pooja K Agarwal’s Retrieval Practice site. Retrieval Practice does not have to be in the form of a quiz. (Further resources)
