Cartoon Network, 3P Learning to make maths fun with World Maths Day

Cartoon Network and 3P Learning, an online mathematics learning programme for schoolkids, have joined hands to promote World Maths Day. World Maths Day is web-based event where students from across the globe compete with each other to solve mental arithmetic problems in a multi-player game environment. The event is scheduled for March 5, 2008.

Tim Power, CEO, 3P Learning, said, “3P Learning is very happy to have Cartoon Network’s support for World Maths Day. Their partnership will certainly help us celebrate this achievement by engaging more children, their families and school communities in the world of maths.”

Vivek Krishnani, Executive Director, Marketing, Turner Entertainment Networks Asia, Inc., said, “As a responsible broadcaster and a leading player in the kids’ entertainment genre, Cartoon Network is excited to share this fantastic event with the millions of kids reached by our channels and websites. Combining studies and gaming in an exciting and challenging interactive environment, World Maths Day is a great way for us to leverage our direct reach with kids to promote learning.”

Cartoon Network will help promote World Maths Day across its networks in India, Australia/New Zealand and South East Asia, to enable the event to achieve its vision of becoming the ‘Olympics of Education’. To be held online on March 5, the event would cater to 5-18 year olds in a set of 60-second age-specific maths challenges.

Launched last year, World Maths Day 2007 had witnessed participation from over 286,392 students representing 1,297 schools from 98 countries, including India. World Maths Day’s aim was for students to correctly answer 10 million questions over the day, of which participants answered 38,904,275 questions.
