Official Results Are In!

Wow, Sunnyland was one of 56,082 schools across the world who participated in World Maths Day in the 48 hours surrounding March 1, 2011. 66 of Sunnyland's students took the challenge, and - do you believe this? - answered 38,876 math questions correctly! Fantastic work everyone.

On a side note, I was just on the site, and it looks like you can still log in and practice with other students around the world if you are interested. Use the same username and password that you used for the event.

Bebeck was also very excited about World Spelling Day. He spelled 879 words correctly! Outstanding work, Bebeck!

Please comment! What was most fun about World Maths Day? Did you learn anything? Should I do this with the students I teach again next year? If so, is there anything we should do differently?


  1. Dear Mr. Pahl,
    It is pretty awesome that they have a world math day and I enjoyed it alot as a student. I made it to level 3 and it is fun.

  2. Dear Mr. Pahl,

    You should totally do Word Maths Day next year! World Maths Day is fantastic! I got kids from Hong Kong, Philippines, Nigeria, Luxemburg and even Cyprus! (Cyprus is an island in the Mediterranean near Greece.) It’s so exciting because you compete against kids from all over the world and also because it’s a learning game.

    I was upset because it was only two days but mom is going to get me a pen pal from another country. If you find any game kind of like World Maths Day let me know.

  3. Dear Mr. Pahl,
    I wish we could do World Maths Day every day. I cant wait till the next March 1st.

  4. Dear Mr. Pahl,
    I think World Maths Day and World Spelling Day helped me a lot with math, spelling and even getting faster at typing! How do you find all of these cool sites like Animoto, Photo Story and many more!?!

  5. Dear Mr.Pahl,

    I think it’s a great idea to do World Maths Day next year and the most fun thing about it was that it kept wanting you to speed up because of the timer and went other people got way more than you. I would just say, “I bet I could of gotten way more!” But I don’t think you should change anything next year.


  6. Dear Mr. Pahl,
    World maths day helped me a ton, it was a greatest way for me to learn my math facts. I really like that it lets you play with other kids around the world.
