PTSA Math Enrichment at Redmond Elementary

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

Math Challenge

Math Challenge is a series of 15 sets of problems provided to us by Math in Action. Every two weeks on Fridays a new set will be posted on the Math in Action website . Look for announcements in the weekly Red Hawk Flash or check the school calendar. The Solutions are usually due the following Thursday by 3 PM. Please submit the answers to your teacher. One prize in each grade will be awarded via random drawing among the students who solve the required for their grade number of problems. All student who solve 8 or more challenges during the year will receive a prize in June.

Math Night

Come and experience the marvelous Math Night in the month of February, an annual school-wide event where you can try various hands-on math problems and activities. "History of Math!" - sounds interesting and unthinkable!!! Yes, this was the theme of our Math Night in 2016-17 where we (Math Night Team)  organized various stations like "Why clocks are round?, Why do we need Zero?, Who invented Calendars?, Geometry, Why place value?, Who invented Operations signs?" for children of different grades. Every station had activities catering to different skill level so every kid had the sense of success in completing a challenge. The primary idea of these activities is to make Math learning more fun and also to understand math applications in real life. Stay tuned for the update on the theme of this year’s Math Night. We are confident the students will have fun and will learn a lot! 

The reason for the event's success is the huge turnout of volunteers! If you wish to volunteer, then please email us.

Please contact Maria and Jaishrie at mathnight@remondelptsa.org for more information or to volunteer!
