Mathnasium of the Glen recently announced the winners of its TriMathlon Day math competition.
The competition for 3rd to 6th graders was held on Saturday, September 29th, in conjunction with Mathnasium Learning Center’s National TriMathlon Day, created to generate excitement about math among kids. National winners will be announced in late October. National winners will share in $10,000 in cash prices.
The winners at the Glen were:
* Cassidy Ryan had a perfect score which means she will continue competing on a National level with approximately 50 other students. Good luck, Cassidy!
TriMathlon participants competed by completing three challenges: The Counting Game (tests student’s ability to count from any number, to any number, by any number), Magic Squares (students are awarded points for creativity in developing their own math problems), and Mental Math Workout (evaluates student’s Number Sense by asking them to solve given problems the ‘smart’ way without pencil and paper).
“Congratulations to the TriMathlon winners and all of the participants,” said Steve Santacruz, Owner of Mathnasium of the Glen. “We hope this competition was a fun and rewarding experience that continues to strengthen their passion for math.”
