SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Students in lower Westchester and the surrounding areas are invited to test their math skills in Mathnasium's 3rd Annual TriMathlon contest Oct. 19.
The event takes place at Mathnasium of Scarsdale, 747 White Plains Road, Scarsdale.
The nationwide math competition is open to students in grades 2-5 from public, private and home schools. Registration begins Sept. 3 and participation is free.
The event is designed to show kids math can be fun. Children at all levels of math ability are invited to participate. In addition to winning trophies, all students who participate will earn money for local schools with every correct answer.
The winner at each grade level will be entered into the national TriMathlon with the chance to earn even larger school donations.
“The Mathnasium TriMathlon represents a wonderful opportunity for kids to have fun, test their math skills and earn money for local schools," said Shane Bland, center director of the Mathnasium of Scarsdale franchise. "It demonstrates that math can be fun and, at the same time, provides a way for the students to give back to their community, which is a wonderful lesson for kids at this age. In the Mathnasium TriMathlon, every child is a winner.”
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 show off their “number sense.”
Students do not need to be enrolled in a Mathnasium center to participate. Prep materials, including a practice test, are available on the Mathnasium TriMathlon's website, where students also can register.
