TIS will once again participate in World Math(s) Day, happening on Wednesday, March 6. For the fourth year now, students from grades 2 through 8 will use Mathletics to race against students from all over the world, trying to answer as many computation problems as they can. Last year, over 293 million problems were solved correctly. The goal is beat that record.
Math classes will be scheduled in the computer labs. Students can also participate at home (special apps for iPads and Samsung tablets can be downloaded for free).
In addition to the Mathletics activities, elementary students in kindergarten through grade 5 will have an opportunity to celebrate math in the evening. Celebrate: Math! will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. in the elementary library and will feature a number of math activities and games for students and parents to do together. There will also be snacks!
Lab C will also be open during Celebrate: Math! for students in grades 2 through 8 to complete the Mathletics challenge.
