Math Challenges & Math Tournament



Math Challenges are designed to gives elementary students opportunities to sharpen their mathematical problem-solving skills. There will be 15 sets of challenges every other week starting in September and ending in 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) Pick up the current Math Challenge from the front office, print it out from here:, OR solve it from an electronic device and use a scratch paper to record the answers of the questions you solve. Neatly write your name, grade, and teacher at the top.

2) Solve as many problems as you can (more than you are required to do). We encourage you to discuss strategies and solutions with your parents and siblings. 

3) Drop it off in the collection box in the front office or email it to by the Wednesday 3pm deadline in the following chart.

Once every two weeks there will be a drawing for prizes from the correct entries submitted, and students who submit all the challenges will be recognized at the end of the year.  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



This year's Math Tournament will be held on April 20, 2024. We already know it will be administered online, but further information is not available as of September 16th, 2023. For updates, you may directly check the website at
