Bear Path Elementary School

The Math Challenge is designed to give elementary students opportunities to sharpen their mathematical problemsolving skills. There will be 15 sets of challenges every other week starting in late September and ending at the end of May.
The program is completely free and no signup 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.
