Each week, our students are presented with a new math challenge. Students can solve the problem and submit answers to receive special recognition from our math committee. Good luck.
To submit an answer - remember to: write your first and last name, your teacher’s name, label your answer, and turn it in by 12:00 p.m. on Thursday. Have Fun!!
