Math Challenges & Math Tournament



Math Challenges are designed to gives elementary students opportunities to sharpen their mathematical problem-solving skills. There will be 15 sets of challenges every other week starting in early October and ending at the end of May.

Throughout the challenges, the program covers problem solving strategies such as draw a picture or model, make an organized list, look for a pattern, working backward, and guess and check.

Here is how to participate:

1) Pick up the current Math Challenge from the front office or print it out here: https://www.mathinaction.org/2021-2022-math-challenge.html 

2) Solve as many problems as you can (more than you are required to do). We encourage you to discuss strategies and solutions with your parents and siblings.

3) Drop it off in the collection box in the front office.

Once a month, there will be a drawing for prizes from the correct entries submitted.  The program is completely free and no sign-up is necessary. This is a great opportunity for families to be involved and enjoy math through fun and engaging math problems. We encourage parents and siblings to get involved in discussing and solving them. Schedules and problem-solving strategies are available at www.mathinaction.org.



We do not have a parent volunteer to organize the math tournaments so they have been cancelled this year.  If you are interested in volunteering for the position.  Please, e-mail enrichment@mannptsa.org

Tournament registration will close on 
Monday, Nov 23rd at 8pm. 

This year's Math Tournament will be held online on Saturday December 12, 2020. All registered students can start the test anytime between 10am-5pm Pacific on December 12. Once students have started the test, they have one hour to complete the test in one sitting. To uphold the integrity of the tournament, we will not release the test questions and answers to registered students until after the tournament has concluded and all registered students have completed the test. We plan to release the test questions and answers on December 14. 

The 3 Digit code for Horace Mann Elementary is 155. Go to the MCT page to register and get more information on the tournament: https://www.ellipsisacademy.com/fall-2020-math-challenge-tournament.html
