Mathletics Competition

Get your math brains on, students! The elementary classes have entered a national competition through Mathletics, an award winning interactive site that aims to improve math skills through fun activities linked to the Canadian curriculum. Students earn points by completing activities and answering questions in Live Mathletics competitions. We are hoping the enthusiasm surrounding this competition grows and will help to increase our students’ math skills. And, who knows? We may even win a prize. 🙂  The contest runs from March 7th to March 24th.

The details:

Earning Points

Skill Quests (Quests)

  • 1 correct answer = 10 points
