THE popular, game-based learning programme SplashLearn has announced the first UK edition of its SpringBoard Maths Challenge.

The maths competition is a calendar marked event and is highly anticipated by teachers across the US and Canada and now, SpringBoard Maths Challenge 2021 is open to all classes from Year 1 to Year 6 in the UK, running from March 1 to May 9.

After creating an account on SplashLearn, teachers can enrol their class for SpringBoard 2021. Once enrolled, all of the maths problems the pupils solve will earn them points which will count towards the total class score. The best performing classes, with the highest points, win weekly prizes at both regional and national level. The winners will then be announced at the end of SpringBoard, with prizes worth in excess of £8,000 up for grabs.

“SpringBoard is a one-of-a-kind maths challenge which brings students together in an environment that enables competition as well as collaboration,” said co-founder of SplashLearn Joy Deep Nath.

“This year, the competition assumes a new meaning as different classes compete with each other but are also coming together, learning together and are also having fun – something they haven’t been able to do this year.”

Arpit Jain, CEO and co-founder, added: “It is crucial that children don’t fall behind with maths during this period of school closures. The SpringBoard Maths Challenge will help reduce the attainment gap, providing children with a fun and secure way to practice with their peers!”

“We are excited to launch this competition in all regions of the UK. I wish all the regions and every school the greatest success,” Jain added.

The Springboard Maths Challenge 2021 is free to enter and is designed to give teachers and schools the opportunity to engage their primary pupils in fun maths challenges aligned to the national curriculum. The ten-week challenge will also allow children to master their maths skills and enter the new class with confidence, whilst having fun throughout the process.

The competition is being rolled out across all regions of the UK including Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
