World Math Day is an international holiday dedicated to mathematics. It is a fundamental science that has evolved over thousands of years. Thanks to the successes of great mathematicians, countless inventions have been created, as well as much progress in various fields of human endeavor (construction, engineering, programming, etc.). The holiday is celebrated every year on March 23.
The history of World Math Day begins in 2007. The initiative to create the holiday was taken by the online learning platform 3P Learning. Since then, the largest math competition has taken place every year. Participants must solve problems of varying difficulty and show that they are the best at it. This amazing science holiday allows each of us to look at math from a different angle.
Mathematics is an interesting, useful, and multifaceted discipline. Maybe you had a bad teacher at school, because you can’t just teach math. A particle of love for this science must be shared so that students feel it, not just see sterile numbers, expressions, and problem conditions!
- There are many students and people interested in science participating in World Math Day celebrations. For example, for the first time in 2007, 287,000 students from nearly a hundred countries participated in a competition from 3P Learning. Today that number has more than doubled!
- Mathematics as a full-fledged science emerged around the 6th century BC. It happened in Greece. Some of the most famous mathematicians of Antiquity were Pythagoras, Archimedes, and Euclid.
- To date, more than 100,000 textbooks and other educational aids have been published.
