 Math Challenges

Math Challenge is a series of math challenges published every other week on the Math in Action website ( We are excited about the program and hoping many students and their families will enjoy it.

There will be 15 math challenges throughout 2016-2017 school year.

Students from grade K to grade 5 are invited to participate. We will offer participation prizes randomly. 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 2017.

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.

We will print some copies to be available in the lobby and for Ms. Manor to have in her office. If you know of students who will not be able to print the Challenge at home, please direct them to those locations. If you have any questions, please contact Beth Cogan (

Thank you!
