It's a Wrap: TriMathlon 2016!

By | Added Nov 30, 2016

Final scores have been tabulated and results are in for the Sixth Annual Mathnasium TriMathlon—Mathnasium’s fun, free elementary school (grades 2 to 5) math competition held at Mathnasium Learning Centers across the country. This year, student participation raised over $35,000 for community schools. Hats off to our 3,568 TriMathletes for their A+ effort and enthusiasm!

On November 19 and 20, 35 TriMathlon finalists representing 23 Mathnasium centers competed for a coveted National Grand Prize! The National Grand Prize TriMathlon put students’ mathematical creativity to the test, asking them to use mathematical operations and two given numbers to get as close as possible to a third number without being equal to that number.
