We're thrilled to announce that the 2020 Times-Table Challenge for Grades 6, 7, 8 and 9 is BACK - with some important differences this year. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we won't be able to host an in-person final. Instead, learners will work through OLICO’s Two Minute Tango App in preparation for the FINAL to be hosted on Zoom on 13 November 2020.

USING THE TWO MINUTE TANGO APP
The “Two Minute Tango” App is available from the Google Playstore and works on entry-level android phones/tablets (sorry, no istore App yet). The App requires no data but must be able to connect to the internet. The challenge is to complete the 30 levels on the Multiplication & Division section and achieve Gold or Platinum Medal status on the Times-Tables Challenge.
Learners who achieve Gold or Platinum Medal status on the Times-Tables section will receive a Certificate for schools/NGOs to print out.
GRAND FINALE - 13 NOVEMBER 2020
The Grande Finale will take place over Zoom on Friday afternoon, 13 November. Learners will use the App to post their fastest times on a LIVE leaderboard with prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Each school/NGO may nominate a maximum of 10 learners per grade to participate in the final. To take part, the school/NGO will need to log into Zoom for the duration of the FINALE.
PRIZES, MEDALS & TROPHIES
Learners stand a chance to win scientific calculators, airtime, stationery packs and (mostly importantly) bragging rights. A group prize will ALSO be awarded to the school/NGO with the most number of Times-Tables Gold Medalists. The prize will be a class pizza/KFC party.
