Registrations now OPEN: 5th International Mental Maths Comp.

Dear Colleagues,

We are writing to advertise our *5th International superTmatik Mental Maths Competition*. This is an international mathematics competition for primary and secondary school students (6 - 15 years). In only four years it has become a key event in the teaching of mathematics. Widespread participation of schools in this innovative educational competition, combining mental challenge with play, has been instrumental in helping students overcome traditional obstacles in learning mathematics.

The central principle of this championship is to develop student competence in mathematics from the start of schooling by constructive play, thereby motivating and involving them in the learning process. The main objectives of the championship are to: promote interest in mental maths; develop skills in number and mental maths; reinforce the learning of mathematics through play; and discover and celebrate talent in mental calculation.

What is the superTmatik mental maths game?
superTmatik is a developmental, teaching card game aimed at motivating students to learn and enjoy maths. The product of innovative ingenuity, the superTmatik mental maths game is in essence a key teaching tool to improve calculation skills. It is fully differentiated, catering not only for different age groups, but also different levels of ability.

For your students to participate, all you need to do is to register your school for entry into the competition. This is a very easy process. Once your school has been registered, the next step is to teach students how to play the game and allow them to practise with their peers. The initial stages of the competition are played within the school, and the names of the school finalists are then sent to the game organisers to be entered to play in the National and International Online competition. Please visit our webpage for more information. If your school does not have a mental maths game, you can acquire a superTmatik mental maths card game free of charge. That is all you need to get started! Your students can also practise online. This is a brilliant way to include both ICT and fun activities in your teaching programme.

More information and registration forms are available on the competition website:
Please email for further information.
