What do students do on the day?

On the right-hand side will be a World Maths Day panel, showing students which Live Mathletics levels they can compete in to generate their World Maths Day score.

Is there anything I can do?
The number one thing you can do as a teacher is to ensure that your students can access Live Mathletics. That means, if you’ve assigned any curriculum activities, Skill Quests (previously known as UPF or Understanding Practice and Fluency) or PSR work, it may prevent them from accessing Live Mathletics and the World Maths Day platform.
To make sure this doesn’t happen (and keep the assigned activities), simply head into the ‘Assign’ area of Mathletics and make sure student access is set to ‘Student Open Access’.
