Emily Dickinson PTSA

Students: sharpen your pencils, ready your brain and get ready to practice some math skills! Math Challenge is coming to Emily Dickinson! 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.

Here is how to participate:

1) Go to this page.

2) Print out the current Math Challenge.

3) Solve as many problems as you can. We encourage you to discuss strategies and solutions with your parents and siblings. 

4) Submit your solutions by the due date. Bring your solution to the office by the due date or turn it in to your teacher.

We will keep track of your submissions. We will give recognition at the end of the school year to students who complete at least 12 sets of challenges.

The program is completely free and no sign-up is necessary. This is a great opportunity for families to be involved and enjoy math through fun and engaging math problems. We encourage parents and siblings to participate in discussing and solving them. Schedules and problem-solving strategies are available at  www.mathinaction.org
