It says we have one week left…does the contest go through until Sunday the 13th or does it go through April 17th? The original information says it is a month long and it ends April 17th, winners posted April 18th. Can you clarify?

Thank you so much.

Hi, Kalynn. Sorry for the confusion. The contest ends next week at 11:59 pm (PST) on April 17, 2014. Students will have a little more than one week — 10 days to be exact! Good luck to your class!

How does one school take up the top 4 spots in middle school by more than 40,000 points? Hmh…. :P

The classes at that school are probably in their own school-wide competition. Their teacher is having them compete against one another and it’s really pushing them to work even harder! The amazing results really reflect their hard work.

It would be interesting to see how classrooms rank with a problems per student ratio. My class has been working very hard yet with only 20 students they are curious to how many students are in some of these middle school classrooms. We’ve also been talking about ratios in class! Would be a great real-life scenario that would make sense to them. They’re not looking for a prize, just curious! Thank you!

Hi, Ryan. What a great idea to use this as a real-life example about ratios! Most of the classes in the showdown, including most of the current leaders, have fewer than 35 students in their classes.
We do plan to have future contest formats that would be more accommodating for different class sizes, so keep an eye out!

This is preposterous, that my class has given 3 periods a day to IXl and we’re not that high up. Those people from Mexico are…. fast to say the least.

Not saying they are cheating, but they could be. Please investigate!

I’m wondering if my effort is for nothing

Hi, Rodney. We understand your concern and we are reviewing all practice results from every class to make sure it complies with the contest rules.
Their school and teachers are having them compete against each another, and it really seems to be pushing them to work even harder! Students are also encouraged to practice from home, so that is probably where most of the problems are completed.

Good luck to you and your class in this final week!
