The PTA sponsors Math Challenge. Math Challenge is a series of math worksheets published every other week on the Math in Action website (www.mathinaction.org). We are excited about the program and hoping many students and their families will enjoy it.
Math Challenges are available at: http://www.mathinaction.org/laurelhurst-elementary.html
Students from grades K to 5 are invited to participate. There’s no sign up for this program. We hope students and their families enjoy mathematics problem solving through these math challenges. The program covers strategies for problem solving including working backward, draw a picture/diagram, make an organize list, guess and check, and use logical reasoning.
This is a voluntary program that is meant to be fun and not a competition. We will offer participation prizes after every five challenges. Also, students who complete at least 12 sets out of the 15 sets of math challenges will be honored at the award assembly in June. All participants will be acknowledged on the Math Stars Board.
