**World Maths Day** is back – very soon!

## 7th March 2018

…is the big day. Now 7th March means as soon as it is 7th March somewhere in the world, so we then have a 48 hour period during which the competition runs. Check the **frequently asked questions** for times where you can see the start times for countries around the world.

**Register** your school; registrations close 5th March 2018. **Download the resources**. The Teacher Pack is very thorough and helpful. From that, we see that warm-up begins 21st February – so get your school registered and your students will have lots of time to practise!

Note **the rules**, you can see there are 8 different levels of games; the number of games at each level where a student can score points depends on their year group.

Follow World Education Games on **Twitter** and/or **Facebook**.

While we wait for warm up we can practise our tables!

There are many games available to help you practice your tables:

From **Transum Software **comes **Flash tables** which will present you with random questions from your chosen tables and then show the answer at the speed you select. Also from Transum, see this great **Tables Collection **which has several activities to try.

For a fun way to practise, try **Sundae Times** from **Manga High**.

Try this **Tables Test** from tablestest.com which you can play at different levels.

**BBC Skillswise **though written for adults has some useful activities for students.

For a real challenge try a **Find the Factors puzzle from Iva Sallay**.

**Sumdog** has many numeracy games including tables.
