How to use maths competitions

Competitions are a fun way to allow your children to compete with other children in your family for a place on the leaderboard.

Children will be able to take part in the competition while practicing or revising the skills you have selected for them or skills which have been selected by Sumdog as skills that your child is working on.

Note: Competitions can only be set for children who are part of a family subscription. Click here for more details about our family subscriptions.
