SCDSB Laptop Program Empowers Students in new age of the Digital Village

World Math Day 2008

March 10, 2008 - The students at St. James Catholic School were among the over a million students from 20,000 schools in 150 countries worldwide who participated in World Math Day on March 5, 2008. The goal of this unique math event was to promote numeracy and improve mental arithmetic skills. Students played mathematical games in real-time with other children across the globe.

St. James students answered a grand total of 60,274 questions correctly. In addition the grade 6/7 and Grade 8 classes won a "Mathletic" licence which will allow students free access to use the Math World Website for a year.
