General Information:

​Math Challenge is a set of fifteen challenges published approximately every two weeks. 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.

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. Each challenge presents 10-18 problems. The first half of the problems are suitable for younger students (K-3). The problems in the challenges increase in the level of difficulty.
