How do I participate?
What's the difference between the Practice period and the Competition period?
The practice period will take place on August 9, 2021, and August 10, 2021. Students, classes and schools can use this time to prepare for the Junior Maths Championship. During this time, students are encouraged to log in to their student account where they can navigate to Competition Island. Eight activities will be available on Competition Island for students to practice. Please note that no prizes will be awarded during the practice period.
The competition commences at 00:01 on August 11, 2021, and concludes at 23:59 on August 13, 2021.
Upon commencement, all participants can login to Matific and begin completing the activities available on Competition Island to earn "stars". Every time students complete an activity, the amount of stars they earn will be awarded to their individual total, their classes total AND their school total. The more stars students earn, the closer they are to becoming a champion! The "stars" earned will be the deciding factor on who wins the awards. Each activity can earn students 5 stars and may be attempted a maximum of 5 times.
References to times are to Indian Standard time unless otherwise stated.
How are winners calculated?
2) Classes and
3) Individual Student.
School and class awards are calculated on the average number of stars collected per student. For example: If a school has 5760 stars and they have 120 students their school score will be 48.00. If a class has 960 stars and 15 students their class score will be 64.00. Student awards will be calculated on the total number of stars collected.
Students earn stars in the Junior Maths Championship by completing activities available on Competition Island during the competition period. The more activities completed, the more stars students earn!
Each competition activity can earn students 5 stars and may be attempted a maximum of 5 times.
The school and class with the highest number of average stars collected across the registered participants will be the winners.
“Earning Stars” means:
- Per student: Points or stars are earned by completing episodes and worksheets successfully.
- Per class: A class’s score is calculated as the average score of all the competing students in the class.
- Per school: A school’s score is calculated as the average score of all the competing classes in the school.
- Matific is neither responsible nor liable for any change in the value of the prizes occurring between publishing date and date the prize is claimed.
