Who is participating?
All students in Grades KG-5 at QA Doha Primary
(and about 5 million students from around the world)

What is it?
The World Education Games are taking place, involving competitions in Math, Literacy and Science.  Our school is participating in the Math competition only.  More than 5 million students from 200 countries and territories will register for the games in 2015.  The games are an exciting online challenge that allows our students to compete with children from all around the world.

When is it?
Warm up - 1-12 October  (Yes!  Students can start logging in to practice from Thursday 1st October.)
World Math Day - 13, 14, 15 October (Students can compete across all three days of the World Education Games.  However, as stated in the rules, only their first 20 attempts will count in the competition.)
Note - Family Math Day will be held on Thursday 15th October, so students will be able to show their parents how they compete.

Students can start their warm up from October 1.  In order to practice and compete in this event, students must use their Mathletics username and password to sign in to

Why are we participating?
  • We see this as an opportunity to learn in an exciting, interactive way.  
  • Students and schools taking part in the World Education Games will earn points for each correct answer given. A live digital Hall of Fame on the homepage will track the top scoring students and schools from right across the world. At the end of the event, medals and trophies will be awarded to the top students and schools.
We can help others in need.  Just by participating through the answering of questions, students will be earning UNICEF Points which are converted into money which will go directly to supporting UNICEF education programs where class and school resources are desperately needed.  More information can be found at
