Louisa May Alcott Elementary
Math Challenge 20182019
Math Challenge #1 starts Friday, September 21st!
All students (K  5) are invited to participate in our free math enrichment program at Alcott. The Math Challenge program is designed to give students opportunities to sharpen their mathematical problemsolving skills. Biweekly math worksheets will be published this website. Students may download and print the math worksheet from the website to complete at home.
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. Each challenge presents 10 to 18 problems. The first half of the problems are suitable for younger students (K to 3). The math problems will increase in level of difficulty as students go along. Depending on the challenge, students in grade K1 are only required to submit solution of 3 7 problems, students in grade 23 are only required to submit solution of 69 problems, and students in grade 45 are required to submit 814 problems. Each Math Challenge will indicate the minimum number of correct solutions for each level. This Math Challenge program is designed for the whole family to work together to solve the problems. We encourage parents to help their kids
