Seahurst Math Club to host local Mathematics Competition May 31
On Friday, May 31, the Seahurst Elementary School math club will be hosting their fourth annual Elementary Math Bonanza, a math contest for students in fourth through sixth-grades.
“Students from across the district will be exposed to problems and topics that go beyond their standard curriculum and share their enjoyment of mathematics with like-minded students,” reads an announcement.
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 twenty problems in their heads, and two team tests (Algebra & Probability and Geometry & Potpourri) in which teams of four students will attempt to solve twenty topic-specific problems in fifteen 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 Seahust Math Club Advisor Tom Clymer by e-mailing [email protected] or calling 206-244-5214. Because this contest is a fundraiser for the Seahurst PTA, donations of money, time, goods, or services by local businesses and individuals would be greatly appreciated. If you are interested in supporting this contest, please contact Tom Clymer.
All of the tests for the 2013 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.
