Last weekend, TriMathletes across the country gathered at participating Mathnasium locations to flex their math muscles, raise money for local schools, and have a great time at the Sixth Annual Mathnasium TriMathlon!
For six years running, elementary students in 2nd through 5th grades have flocked to their neighborhood Mathnasium centers to test their math skills in their local TriMathlon. This fun, free community math competition tests a mathlete’s mental agility through three math challenges:
- The Counting Game: Count from any number, to any number, by any number.
- Magic Squares: Use creativity to create your own number sentence using a given selection of numbers.
- Mental Math Workout: Set aside your calculator, pencil, and paper; enter our algorithm-free zone; and tell us how you’d solve a math problem… the number sense way.
Every student who competed received a goody bag and certificates for their participation, with the top three competitors at each grade level walking away with medals commemorating their accomplishments!
The TriMathlon also presented an opportunity to give back to the community—Mathnasium donated $10 to local schools and parent leader groups for every student who participated!
We’re so proud of all TriMathletes, who did their very best as they worked through our three tough math challenges (we think they all deserve an A+ for effort)...
… and had lots of fun playing math games with friends before and after testing time!
The fun continues on November 19 and 20: The 45 TriMathletes who received perfect scores at last weekend’s local competitions will vie for first, second, and third places for their grade level at the National Grand Prize TriMathlon!
Who will emerge victorious? Stay tuned for a recap of our TriMathlon final results!
