PTSA MATH ENRICHMENT

The Redmond El. PTSA sponsors several programs for students who want to participate in math-related events throughout the year. The objective of these programs is to increase student interest in math and provide opportunities for Redmond El students to pursue math outside the classroom.

 

MATH CHALLENGE

Math challenges are a series of stimulating and interesting Math questions that student can do for fun. For new challenges check here. There are 15 challenges throughout the year. HawkFlash newsletter will announce when the next Math Challenge is available and the due dates for the answers. In some classes students get printed paper challenge materials in their Red Hawk folder. 

For those who submit and complete 10 Math challenges at their grade level The Math Challenge committee will have a drawing for the yearly winners. Have fun! 

For questions email MathChallenge@redmondelptsa.org.

 

MATH NIGHT

Come and experience the marvelous Math Night on November 8th. This is an annual school-wide event where you can try various hands-on math problems and activities. The kids will experience various stations organized around the theme for the year. They will ponder problems like: Why clocks are round?, Why do we need Zero?, Who invented Calendars?, Geometry, Why place value?, Who invented Operations signs?
Every station had activities catering to different skill level so every kid had the sense of success in completing a challenge. 

The reason for the event's success is the huge turnout of volunteers! If you wish to volunteer, then please reach out to mathnight@redmondelptsa.org.
