Welcome to Math Challenge Program at Rosa Parks Elementary!

 

What is Math Challenge?

 

Math Challenge is a set of 15 challenges published approximately every two weeks and each set will present 10-18 problems ordered by level of difficulty.

 

The goal of Math Challenge is to enrich the school curriculum and to encourage different ways of problem-solving. This is a fantastic opportunity for families to be involved and enjoy math through fun and engaging math problems. We encourage parents and siblings to get involved in discussing and solving them.

 

Math Challenge is a PTSA sponsored program that is

  • Open to all students, grades K-5

  • Free to participate

  • Requires registration at the beginning of the year

  • Sign up will be open between (September 27- October 29)

  • Run by parent volunteers

The questions come from a team of parents at Math in Action. The guidelines will adhere to Math in Action, but implementation, schedule, and rules at Rosa Parks differ slightly.

Rules are subject to change during the year and will be shared through PUMA Info.

  • Read the general instructions on the first page of Challenge 1, this will help set the tone and intent for all challenges for the year.

  • All Math Challenges are self-corrected this year.

  • Students will not need to turn in their completed Math Challenges at the school. Parents/guardians are encouraged to check their student’s answers and submit the number of correct answers via this Rosa Parks online form so we can track their success. 

  • Please follow Puma Info for further updates on Math Challenge.

  • Points will be assigned for every eligible solution. We keep track of points to award a certificate at the end of the year.

 

How do I earn a certificate?

We will be awarding 1 point per eligible Math Challenge. These points will add up toward

year-end award.

 

To earn a point, students must

  • Attempt a minimum number of required questions for their grade (listed on every challenge – e.g., Kindergartners may only need to attempt a minimum of 4 out of 15 questions)

  • Have at least 50% of attempted questions accurate

Participants who earn points minimum of 5 during the school year will be awarded a certificate at the end of the year.
