I was given one www.mathletics.com.au 6 month subscription to give away to one of our readers and one to keep for myself, but since we are Mathletics addicts already, I have TWO 6 month subscriptions to give away! (valued at $88 each)
If you aren't already familiar with Mathletics, it is a very very cleverly constructed online educational site full of maths problems for kids that are school year appropriate. It is a fabulous way to keep them busy and learning at the same time. Kids can create their own profile picture to best reflect their personality. I think my son has a helicopter on top of his hat :) One of the most popular sections is a real time competition against other students around the world. There are games, credits to earn, certificates and much more.
In conjunction with the Commonwealth Bank, Mathletics is hosting the Australian Maths Challenge between 30th-31st August. It is Australia's largest online maths competition with an expected 400 000 Aussie kids competing this year. Registrations open tomorrow, August 15th, 2011. It is a free event for students between four years and eighteen years. All students who participate will receive a certificate and the top 10 will go on to represent Australia in the 2012 World Education Games.
"Each day of the Maths Challenge has a different focus where students can earn points for themselves and their school by competing on the Challenge website, hosted by Mathletics. The competition kicks off on the Tuesday with the ‘Curriculum Challenge’, where students are tested on their knowledge of the Australian Curriculum. Wednesday will see students earn points via the Live Mathematics Game, where they will compete in real time against other students around the country in 60-second races of mental arithmetic. A comprehensive live leaderboard will keep track of the winning schools and students as the Challenge progresses, with some great prizes available to be won". (press release)
