It is all-inclusive, free, and accessible to both schools and children learning at home. It lasts 48 hours in order to cover all global time zones. On this day, millions of students worldwide compete in Live Mathletics challenges to decide a global winner, as well as in entertaining activities that highlight the magic of numbers.
