Winners and prizes

Prize packs are awarded to the top 10 schools, based on the highest average of participation points. Encourage your whole school to compete!


Who can participate?

This competition is open to all schools with or without a Mathletics subscription. Schools must be registered for the competition to be eligible for prizes.

How is the winner determined?

Winners will be determined by the highest average of total Live Mathletics points in a school. This will be calculated by taking the total number of Live Mathletics points divided by the total number of registered students in the school.

To allow fair competition between schools of different sizes, school points are calculated on an “average points per student” basis. For example, a school of 200 registered students scores a total of 1,000,000 points during the competition. Their league table ranking would be based on an average of 5,000 points per student.

Please note: Points earned through any other Mathletics activities are NOT included in the competition points.

When does the competition start and finish?

Points from Live Mathletics will be awarded to students individually and are only recorded throughout the competition period listed below:​
Monday 21 November 2022 00:01 am (AEST) – Competition opens
Friday 25 November 2022 11:59 pm (AEST) – Competition ends

Earning points in Live Mathletics

Students earn 1 point per correct answer, or 2 points if they have selected their bonus level.

Prize Details

There will be prizes for the top 10 schools.

When will the winners be announced?

Once the November Numeracy Challenge 2022 has ended, all results will be verified. Upon completion of verification, the winners will be announced on the Numeracy November Challenge website under the Hall of Fame section and via email. All results as determined by the Mathletics team are final.​

When is the cut-off date for registration?

Registration officially closes on 20th November 2022.
