It's a Wrap: TriMathlon 2015!

By Damaris | Added Nov 4, 2015

Final scores are in for the Fifth Annual Mathnasium TriMathlon—Mathnasium’s annual elementary school (grades 2 to 5) math event held over the course of one weekend at Mathnasium Learning Centers across the US and Canada! We think we can all agree that this was one for the books—student participation raised over $37,000 for community schools! Congratulations to our 208 participating centers and our 3,800 TriMathletes for a job well done—we received a ton of great feedback and photos and really appreciate how excited everyone was this year.

On October 24 and 25, 60 TriMathlon finalists from 49 Mathnasium centers competed in the Grand Prize Tiebreaker. This year’s Grand Prize Tiebreaker invited students to use their mathematical creativity using PEMDAS mathematical operations and two given numbers to get as close as possible to a third number without being equal to that number.
