World Record Broken!

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!
