Students Participate to Raise $40,000 for Schools Nationwide and Demonstrate That Math Can Be Fun
Mathnasium’s Annual TriMathlon is a community event designed to encourage kids in grades two through five to engage in math while supporting local schools. Mathnasium will donate money to local schools on behalf of TriMathlon participants, targeting an aggregate donation of about $40,000 throughout the United States.
The TriMathlon consists of three events:
Magic Squares, where students are awarded points for developing their own math problems.
The Counting Game, which tests students’ ability to count from any number, to any number, by any number.
Mental Math Workout, which asks students to solve problems without a pencil and paper in order to showcase their number sense.
The competition, open to students in second through fifth grades, will be held November 5 or 6 at all Richmond Mathnasium Learning Centers. Winners at each grade level will compete against other local winners from across the country for the National Grand Prize the following weekend. Participation is free and open to all Richmond-area students. Kids do not need to be enrolled in a Mathnasium center to join the fun. All contestants will receive goody bags for their effort and participation, while winners will be recognized with medals for their accomplishments.
