Math athletes can exercise their minds and win prizes at the TriMathlon, held nationwide and at the Issaquah Mathnasium on May 14.
Registration for the math day begins on Pi Day, March 14.
Students in third through sixth grades can register for free either online or at the Issaquah Mathnasium.
On the day of the contest, up to 30 students from each grade level will have a half-hour to complete three fun, but challenging math games: a counting game tests students’ abilities to count from any number, to any number, by any number; magic squares awards students points for creativity in developing their own math problems; and mental math workout evaluates students’ number acumen by asking them to solve problems mentally.
Questions become progressively more difficult for students in higher grade levels.
