Buddies are other Maths-Whizz students from around the world. Students can view their buddies by clicking on the ‘my buddies’ tab, and they can accept or decline their buddy requests by clicking on the ‘buddy requests’ tab. If a student would like a add a new buddy, they should click on the plus button which is found on the top right hand corner. All messaging is delivered through the Maths-Whizz system and students cannot directly communicate with each other in Maths Challenges.
