World Math Day Brings Students together from Across the Globe to answer Online Math Questions.

World Maths Day (known as World Math Day in American English) is one of the World’s largest global educational events. Students from across the globe unite in a celebration of numbers over the internet. The event aims to lift numeracy standards in a fun and meaningful way.

In the inaugural World Maths Day event more than 287,000 students from 98 countries combined to correctly answer 38,904,275 mathematics questions.

World Maths Day takes place on the first Wednesday in March. This Year in 2008 the event will occur on 5 March. Registration is free of charge for both schools and students. Registrations for 2008 open on the World Maths Day website

So I invite all Students of Vedic Maths especially Kids and Teachers to participate and test their skills on this website by registering. Teachers must encourage Students to be a part of this Global Mental Math Event.
