Points from Live Mathletics and Curriculum Activities will be awarded to students individually and are only recorded throughout the competition period listed below: February 27th 00:01am – Competition opens March 31st 11:59pm – Competition ends
Earning points in Live Mathletics: Students earn 1 point per correct answer, or 2 points if they have selected their bonus level.
Earning points in Mathletics Curriculum Activities: Students earn 10 points per correct answer, with a maximum of 300 points from any individual activity during the competition period.
This competition is open to Canada-based schools with a Mathletics subscription. Schools may add additional students for free for the duration of the competition. Schools must be registered for the competition to be eligible for prizes.
To allow fair competition between schools of different sizes, class points are calculated on an “average points per student” basis. For example, a school of 500 students scores a total of 1,000,000 points during the competition. Their league table ranking would be based on an average of 2,000 points per student.
Once March Madness has ended, all results will be verified by the Mathletics team. Upon completion of verification, the winners will be announced on the Mathletics blog and on the March Madness website. All results as determined by the Mathletics team are final.
