For 2020, the Mental Calculations World Championship will be held as a special online event!
Date: Saturday 15th August 2020 starting at 330pm UK time
Contestants will join a video call in small groups for the initial round, where they will race against the clock to answer mental maths questions such as:
- exact square root of 311364
- 5/12 + 11/18
- What day of the week was 14th June 1883?
Answers will be presented on a PowerPoint presentation during a video call, and answers must be typed on a keyboard. The contestants with the highest scores will qualify for the final round, consisting of head-to-head matches.
While we expect everyone to participate honestly, we do ask that all competitors use a webcam that shows both them and their screen, to reduce the risk of cheating!
In addition, Mental Calculations coach Daniel Timms will be presenting the event live so your skills can be on display, and non-competitors can watch and join in! For privacy, your webcam will not be streamed live, but there may be other opportunities for you to appear “live”.
This competition has a limit of 30 entrants, and priority will be given to those who register early. If you have participated in a mental calculation competition before, please mention this when you apply to compete. The registration deadline is 11pm UK time on July 31.
SPACE IS LIMITED FOR THIS EVENT. REGISTRATIONS AREN’T ACCEPTED UNTIL CONFIRMED BY MSO. PLEASE REGISTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE IF YOU WISH TO PARTICIPATE.
