Seahurst Math Club To Host Highline Elementary Mathematics Competition
After school on Friday, May 6th, the Seahurst Math Club will be hosting their 2011 Elementary Math Bonanza, a math contest for students in grades four through six.
The math club is administering the contest as a fundraiser to help pay for the registration fees of the many contests in which they participate. Local elementary school students will benefit by being exposed to problems and topics that go beyond their standard curriculum and by sharing their enjoyment of extracurricular mathematics with like-minded students. Competitors will participate in a variety of tests in different formats: an individual test in which students will attempt to solve thirty problems in thirty minutes, a mental math test in which individuals will try to solve questions entirely in their head, and two team tests (Algebra & Probability and Geometry & Potpourri) in which teams of four students will attempt to solve twenty topic-specific problems in twenty minutes.
If you are a coach, teacher, or parent of a student in grades four through six and are interested in registering for this competition, please contact Tom Clymer, Seahurst Math Club Advisor, by e-mailing [email protected]. Because this contest is a fundraiser for the Seahurst Math Club, donations of money, time, goods, or services by local businesses and individuals would be greatly appreciated.
All of the tests for the 2011 Middlementary Math Bonanza will be provided by National Assessment & Testing (http://www.natassessment.com), which in addition to this local contest, administers five national contests by mail each year in different formats.
