It’s that time of year again for the Mathletes Challenge. This will be our seventh annual competition and we hope to have 200+ students compete.
Mathletes Challenge is a competition designed to provide Benchmark Assessment preparation and enrichment to high achieving Little Rock School District students in third, fourth and fifth grade. Students will compete for certificates, ribbons, trophies, and an overall district trophy for the winning Mathletes Challenge team and their school.
Four students compete as a team and represent their schools in this competition. The Challenge is broken into two, 20 minute halves. Teams are given a 20 question test each half. Scores are tabulated and the teams who score the highest move on to the next round of the competition. Eventually five teams will be left competing to become the overall Challenge Champions.
All students receive a Mathletes Challenge 2012 T-shirt upon entry to the competition. Students will receive certificates, ribbons, trophies and winning schools will receive certificates, plaques and trophies. The friendly competition is a lot of fun and we hope that you will be able to participate this year.
Please pass this on to anyone in your building that may be interested in being a team coordinator. If you have any questions, please email or call me. Attached to this email is an informational sheet about the competition which includes a registration form, the rules for the competition and a practice test that is similar to one that students will receive during the real competition.
