World Math Day is the world's largest education event. Students around the globe from ages 4-18 compete against each other in mental arithmetic games on the World Math Day website. The event encourages students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to do math in a fun, interactive and accessible way. Money raised from the event goes toward struggling schools.
