Scotland-wide contest!

Could your class be the proud winners of our
exclusive trophy? 

Sumdog Contests1 

Enter our first ever Scotland-wide maths contest to find out.

The winning class will receive an exclusive trophy as well as a premium Sumdog subscription.

Sumdog’s Scottish contest is in support of National Digital Learning week set up by Education Scotland. It’s really easy to get involved and pupils LOVE our contests.

“Sumdog contests have  significantly improved engagement with home learning in my class where the majority of the class give 100% which is incredible.”
Lynne Scott, Sandwood Primary, Glasgow 

Pupils play Sumdog games and answer up to 1000 maths questions.  Scores are based on a class average so it’s fair for everyone and encourages team spirit. Every student answers questions generated to their own indiviudal needs – everyone has a chance to win.

The contest runs 12th-18th of May.

Join the 1500 classes that have already entered here.

Hear questions out loud

We’re excited to announce that soon questions will be read out loud on Sumdog.

We’ve had lots of requests for this and are pleased we’re now able to deliver it. We know that lots of students will benefit from having questions spoken to them, including your younger students.

For mathematics, students choose from multiple choice answers. For Sumdog spelling, students listen to a question and type the answer.
We’d love to hear your thoughts and comments. Get in touch here.

Sumdog’s kitchen is coming

Play each week…
get your Sumdog Kitchen!

We’re going to add a new room to Sumdog’s on-screen house: a kitchen. It’s the first time we’ve added a new room.

Every student who uses Sumdog during May will receive this extra room.

We’ll help decorate it, too. For each of the next twelve weeks, there’s a new item of kitchen furniture to collect – simply by playing Sumdog.

Your students will receive all of the items they collect when they play in May.

It’s the best of both worlds: lots of mathematics practice – and a shiny new kitchen!

About Sumdog’s House

Sumdog’s on-screen house is a great motivation for your students.

Every correct answer they give earns them virtual coins – which they can use to decorate their house.

As teachers, you can control when they access the house during school hours: for example, you can open it as a reward at the end of class.

“My family is proud that I came first”

Students have been working hard, having fun and winning prizes in Sumdog’s free regional and national mathematics contests.

Contests are fair for everyone. Scores are based on the class average and questions are adapted to each student’s ability.

Here’s Graettinger-Terril School in Iowa hard at work in a local contest. They even compete at weekends and holidays:
Whitehirst Park School find it exciting to work as a team and see which other schools are competing.
“I like to concentrate so that I get most of my questions correct. My family is proud that I came first.” 
Well done, Kyle!

Sumdog has hundreds of skills you can choose from.

Students play the games as normal. When they reach the target they are rewarded with bonus coins to spend in the Sumdog house.

To set it up, click the ‘activities’ button on the left of your teacher dashboard and choose ‘create challenge’.
