Math Challenge is a free school-wide math enrichment program open to all Kokanee Elementary students. It consists of a series of challenging and interesting math problems. The program provides 15 sets of challenges throughout the school year; each set is published every other week starting in late September and ending in May.
How does the program work?
The program provides 15 challenges throughout the school year. These math challenges cover problem solving strategies such as drawing a picture or model, making an organized list, looking for patterns, working backwards, and guess and check.
Each challenge presents 10 to 18 problems ordered by level of difficulty, which enables students from various grades to participate in the same challenge. It’s done this way so that it is available uniformly to all students, including those who are currently solving higher-than-grade problems. The minimum number of questions to answer for qualification, however, varies by grade level.
Challenges will be released online, on mathinaction.org, from late September / early October through May, every 2 weeks (on average). Solutions will be released, on the same website, 2 weeks after the challenge, along with the questions for the next challenge.
