Posted on 16th January 2019 by admin

london-maths-contest-image Motivate children across your school with a London-wide online maths contest. Pupils are invited to practise maths, have fun and compete against their fellow Londoners this February. 

Your school will love Sumdog’s contest because:

  • It is completely FREE to enter and pupils can continue to use Sumdog for free once the contest has ended.
  • It is a great way to motivate children and encourage a positive attitude towards maths.
  • You can play Sumdog in class or set it as homework, it all counts towards the contest!
  • You could win a six month subscription to Sumdog’s premium features, as well as pupil certificates for the daily winners.

How does it work?

  • To take part, pupils simply play Sumdog’s online maths games and answer questions that are adapted to their level.
  • Each correct answer given counts towards the class score, the most accurate class wins the contest. In the case of a tie, we rank classes on average answer speed.
  • There are a maximum of 1,000 questions to answer in the contest so remember it’s all about how accurately children can answer the questions, not how many they answer!
  • The contest is taking place from 8th -14th February 2019.

How do I enter my class?

  • If you are new to Sumdog, simply create an account for free and register your class. Or simply log in if you are already a Sumdog user.
  • Once logged in, click on the ‘Contests‘ button and under London Maths Contest, select ‘Enter.’
  • The contest is running from 8th – 14th February 2019 but if you are new to Sumdog, it’s best to play for a couple of sessions before the contest. This makes sure pupils have completed the diagnostic test and the questions are tailored to their level.
