The world record was not only broken, but it was shattered to bits and pieces. The goal for the World Math Day challenge was 182,445,169 in a 48 hour time period. The new world record is now 452,681,681! There also broke a record of 2,001,570 participants in 204 countries around the world. WOW! That is a lot of students doing a lot of math!
My students surpassed my expectations. Laurelville students answered a total of 102,448 questions in those two days. I never imagined we would hit a number like that. FABULOUS JOB, FIFTH GRADE! I am very proud of you!
