Malta finished in second place overall in an International Mental Mathematics Challenge, with the Education Ministry describing it as an outstanding result for Maltese students across primary and secondary schools.
257,259 students of 45 nationalities participated in the 13th edition of the ‘Supertmatik Mental Maths Challenge’. This is the best result ever achieved by Malta in this challenge. While the success of our young ambassadors goes beyond achieving top ranks, “we are proud that Maltese students have obtained an overall 2nd place”, the ministryn said.
This annual mental mathematics international championship is a mathematics competition for students aged between 6 and 15 years. Maltese students in different year groups, in both primary and secondary schools, have participated in one of nine different categories depending on their age. This competition promotes interest in mental mathematics and it provides students with another opportunity to reinforce their skills in number and mental calculations through constructive play. Nonetheless, this competition aims at honing and celebrating talent in mental mathematics.
The Ministry for Education and Employment commended all schools that embraced this wonderful opportunity. Class teachers, together with their Senior Leadership Teams and educators supporting these schools, including the Maths Support Teachers (Primary) and the Heads of Department (Mathematics) have provided yet another learning opportunity for the students.
