Math contests give students an educationally enriching opportunity to participate in an academically- oriented activity and to gain recognition for mathematical achievement. Each contest covers topics appropriate to the contest grade level. The key is to encourage students to enjoy a challenge and to learn from it to find problem-solving discussions stimulating. This challenge is what prompts many youngsters to enjoy puzzle books! The enrichment we provide is a positive experience for students. Prep is done by parents. There will be a next level contest for any sixth grader who earns a perfect score on a first come, first serve basis. Parents will be notified about this and it is up to them to register and prep their child for the next level competition. Please visit the website for more information.
