Students who can answer all questions correctly in each MC will be recognized as 'Solid star student'.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How many math challenges will there be and how many must I complete?

 

A. There will be a total of 15 challenges and students are not required to complete any. However, if you complete 12, and answer enough correct questions per your grade level for each challenge, you'll earn a math recognition certificate at the end of the school year. 

 

Q. How do you determine the winners in each math challenge?

 

A. In most math challenges, we randomly select students from the participants who answered enough questions correctly. Those students receive a small prize. A few challenges this year are special challenges in which everyone who submits the correct number of answers for their grade will win a prize. 

 

Q. Do students of different grades get different challenges?

 

A. No. All students K-5 get the same problems to solve. However, the minimum number of question that need to be answered vary by grade and questions get progressively more challenging.

 

Q. Can you explain how to submit the math challenge? 

 

A. You can submit a paper copy by the due date into the math challenge bin in the school premises or you can use one of the two online form options on this web page.
