Riverside School's 2022 Math Marathon Starts January 24th!

 

 

The PTA  is excited to announce details for the Riverside School’s 2022 Math Marathon!

 

Math Marathon is a week-long event where we celebrate the study of math in our school community and educate parents about some of the tools our teachers use in their classrooms.  It will start Monday, January 24th, and run through Sunday, January 30th.

  

The week-long event will kick off on Monday, January 24th at 6 pm with a virtual Family Math Night hosted by Greg Tang, master game developer, programmer, and favorite among teachers and students alike. Register now using the link below. Only registered families will receive the Zoom link and Bingo Board. 

 

 

Math Marathon Week Instructions:

 

  • Download and print the level-appropriate Math Marathon game board.

Level 1 Game Board (suggested for Kindergarten)

Level 2 Game Board (suggested for Grade 1)

Level 3 Game Board (suggested for Grade 2)

Level 4 Game Board (suggested for Grade 3)

Level 5 Game Board (suggested for Grade 4)

  • Follow the game board instructions and complete one exercise/worksheet per day.

  • Use a Riverside School sticker or a sticker of your choice to indicate an exercise has been completed. Riverside School Stickers will be sent home in Friday folders on Friday, January 21. 

  • Submit a picture of your completed game board on MyPage, by Sunday, January 30 at 5 pm 

Prizes:

 

All students who submit a completed game board are eligible to win in two ways: 

 

  • Win as an individual! All students who submit a completed game board are entered into a raffle to win an exciting prize: a year-long family membership to the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath), plus a $50 gift card to the MoMath store! (Membership includes access to the museum in NYC as well as virtual programming. The year-long membership can start at the winner’s discretion, as late as June 1, 2022.)
  • Win with your class! The class in each grade with the highest percentage of participating students will win an extra recess. A student will count as having “participated” by completing and submitting a game board by the deadline, January 30 at 5 pm.

 PTA will track submissions and determine the winners.

 

We hope this is a fun week-long event that will get you and your kids pumped about math.  All students, Kindergarten to Fifth Grade, are encouraged to participate. 

 

Email any questions to Math Marathon volunteers Betsy McIntyre, Lisa Steinberg, or Jocelyn Michels, and thank you for participating!
