6th International Mental Math Championship

Dear Colleagues,

We are writing to advertise our 6th superTmatik Mental Math Championship, an international mathematics competition for 6-15 year old pupils.

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.

[color=#FF00BF]superTmatik = Differentiation in teaching + Greater motivation + ICT in the classroom + FUN[/color]

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.

How to participate?
For your students to participate, all you need to do is to register your school for entry into the competition no fees to participate. 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 championship organisers to be entered to play in the 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!

More information and registration forms are available on the competition website: http://www.mentalmathcompetition.com.
Please email info@mentalmathcompetition.com for further information.

My browser doesn't like the website very much, but I've opened the Rules pdf. Do you want me to cut and paste the contents?

I can read them (without crashes so far) with the latest version of Adobe Reader, but I have other computers I sometimes use that don't support that version. Which version is intended to suffice?

By the way, the Rules file is rules.pdf (with a lowercase r). The overview is play_superTmatik.pdf.

Entering the link into http://docs.google.com/viewer might be a work-around.
