Ecclesbourne ‘mathletes’ prove they are fit and fast in Mathletics worldwide competition.
World Maths Day, which took place this Wednesday, was celebrated at EPS with pupils competing in a 48 hour on-line Mathletics challenge. The children had to complete twenty live challenges against other pupils from schools all over the world. Every question they answered correctly scored them a point which gave them a total for their twenty matches. There was a fantastic effort from our children and the results are now in.
Ecclesbourne finished 45th in the UK and 148th in the world!
The top scoring pupil was Muhammad-Ali from Mars who finished 9th in the UK and 28th in the world with a huge score of 1,075!
Not bad going considering over 50,000 pupils took part worldwide!
Well done to all the children who participated and keep up the Mathletics – it really does improve your maths skills..
