Ella Baker Elementary PTSA




New Math Enrichment Program for Ella Baker Elementary School!

Math Challenge is designed to gives elementary students opportunities to sharpen their mathematical problem-solving skills. There will be 15 sets of challenges every other week starting on 09/21/2018 and ending at the end of May. 

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 our school Math Challenge page at http://www.mathinaction.org/ella-baker-elementary.html

2) Print out the current Math Challenge.

3) Solve as many problems as you can (more than you are required to doJ). 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 your teacher by the due date or drop your solution into the school office Math Challenge Dropbox.

We will keep track of your submissions. We give recognition to students who at least complete 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 get involved in discussing and solving them. Schedules and problem-solving strategies are available at www.mathinaction.org
