Countingwheels is hosting India Maths Day 2021, the second edition of its annual nationwide math quiz competition on December 22, 2021. The quiz competition is open to high school students studying in grades 6 to 8.

The company added that this year’s competition will celebrate the application of mathematical shapes, numbers, formulas and theories in everyday life.
The annual competition, now in its second year, tests students’ ability to apply basic mathematical concepts and further tests their logical and analytical thinking skills. In last year’s inaugural edition, more than 10,000 students in grades 6-10 from 150 schools across 1,150 cities and towns across India participated in the quiz.
India Maths Day 2021 will announce a total of nine winners, including three winners each in Class 6, 7 and 8. Quiz winners will also be awarded the Mathematics Genius Medal.
