Background: Mathnasium's TriMathlon contest is designed to show kids that math can be fun. Children at all levels of math ability are invited to participate. In addition to winning trophies, all students who participate this year will earn money for local schools ($20/student). The winner at each grade level will be entered into the national TriMathlon, with the possibility of earning larger school donations.
The competition will begin with 2nd grade at 9:00am (with 3rd grade’s competition starting roughly an hour and a half later, and so on) on October 18 at the Carrollton Mathnasium learning center at 1025 W Hebron Pkwy (next to “Vet Saver”). Participation is free.
The TriMathlon consists of three events:
• Magic Squares, where students are awarded points for developing their own math problems.
• The Counting Game, which tests students' ability to count from any number, to any number, by any number.
• Mental Math Workout, which asks students to solve problems without a pencil and paper in order to show off their “number sense.”
The contest is open to all students in grades 2 through 5 in public, private, or home school. Students do not need to be enrolled in a Mathnasium class to participate. Prep materials, including a practice test, are available on the Mathnasium TriMathlon website (www.mathnasiumtrimathlon.com), where students can also register.
