On the World Education Games Website we can see the following message:
The World Education Games will be taking a break in 2014 from official competition and will return in 2015.
From an announcement in December 2013 we learn that the World Education Games will be a biannual event, taking place in March 2015, 2017 and 2019. The Exact dates for 2015 will be announced in March 2014. You can read the announcement on the World Education Games blog.
So the event is over for 2013, so many questions answered by so many students and lots of fun, the numbers have been crunched here. Students can still log in to the site and print an achievement certificate.
Perhaps time to remind everyone who enjoys these mental arithmetic games that there are plenty available they can still enjoy all year round.
Note the comment from Shane Hill below, for 4 to 10 year olds he has made Core Skills available.
Sum Sense from Oswego City School District. for example is a little different – arrange the given numbers to give a correct statement. If you like this game note that Sum Sense games are available for other operations, scroll down to the bottom of this collection.
I have been looking at Sumdog again recently, I like the way that the various skill levels can be restricted; the site is aimed at students aged 6 to 14 (having said that some of my Year 11 (age 15-16) students looked like they were rather enjoying themselves recently) so I want my secondary age students to practise the skills at the upper end of the age range and have currently restricted them all to levels 8, 9 and 10. It is possible to set up competitions so I thought I would try that this week with Year 10 as one of our many Enrichment Week activities. See the Teachers’ page.
