Math Challenge

Math Challenge is a FREE program that gives elementary students a chance to practice their mathematical problem-solving skills with fun and engaging problems. Throughout the challenges, the program covers problem solving strategies such as draw a picture or model, make an organized list, look for a pattern, working backward, and guess and check.

Details about the program can be found here: http://www.mathinaction.org/ben-rush.html

  • Parents print the challenges at home and assist their children with completing the questions.
  • Completed papers should be turned in at the PTA basket in the Office by the due date.
  • We rely on parent volunteers to help correct the papers.
  • Students who have completed all challenges, will receive awards at the end of the year.

This year, we will also be organizing a Math Tournament at Ben Rush open to all students. More details coming soon!
