How does the Maths Challenge work?
Each week, the Maths Invaders Leaderboard calculates and displays in rank order, the total number of questions answered correctly for each class broken down by country, state and age group. At the end of the designated Maths Challenge week we will award Gold, Silver and Bronze class trophies to Australian schools on an age group basis. Since the results will be displayed on the Leaderboard classes ranking lower than a 1st, 2nd or 3rd position can still see their rank and celebrate accordingly.

Getting started for schools with existing subscriptions or current Free Trials
Simply keep working. Each correctly answered question by a student in any one of your classes will count towards the weekly total. Join up as many classes as you can and compete within your school as well!
To compete for FREE – start a FREE Trial:
- Start your teacher account. In the process you’ll need to Identify your school to enable us to be in touch with you to give you access during the Challenge.
- If you already have an existing Free Trial or a paid subscription just start competing and your results will be automatically entered in the competition.
- Add your students. This short video will show you how to add your students’ details.
- Print the students’ logins for them and start working!
- We employ standard deviation filters to ensure that results that are atypical for a student are discounted and not used for the calculation of class results. This methodology assumes that each student will build their skills in a progressive manner and guards against the possibility of others with higher skill speeds artificially inflating a student’s result by working in their account.
