 This program is not a competition but a development and enrichment program, aiming to provide a joyful learning experience.
"Math in Action Challenges" offer a great opportunity to improve students' problemsolving and critical thinking skills in mathematics and help students face mathematical challenges to find their own creative solutions. The advantages of this program;
 Developing ProblemSolving Skills: Students enhance their ability to analyze and solve realworld problems. These activities allow students to relate abstract mathematical problems to concrete and meaningful situations.
 Enhancing Critical Thinking Skills: Students evaluate different solution methods and choose the most effective one. This can improve their critical thinking and analytical skills.
 Collaboration and Teamwork: Mathematical problemsolving activities provide opportunities for students to work together, exchange ideas, and share problemsolving processes. This can improve their collaboration and teamwork skills.
 Increasing Passion for Mathematics: Learning mathematics through realworld applications can make math more interesting and meaningful. This can increase students passion for mathematics and encourage them to engage more in the subject.
 Encouraging Creative Thinking: Mathematical problems provide students with the opportunity to find creative solutions and combine different mathematical concepts. This can contribute to development of their creative thinking skills.
 To Read And Understand Instructions In English: In addition to problemsolving skills, they will have the opportunity to use and improve their English while solving given problems.
How to Participate
 Accept the challenge: The math challenge sheets will be in Math Challenge Boxes at Math Corners to take. You can also view and print the challenges on this site or you can ask for it from your homeroom teacher.
