How are teams developed?

  • Teams are organized by grade level
    • 4-6 Grade Team

  • Teams may not be only one individual
  • Teams consist of no more than 35 participants

What does the practice look like?

  • Practice Problems given to be solved in small groups in the form of a game- math baseball
  • Multiple representations will be presented and shared as a team
  • Practice Problems will be sent home for homework
  • Homework and specific problems with questions will be addressed at practice sessions

Is this for the entire school year?

  • Yes at least until our last competition date

What costs are associated with participating?

  • $20 per student- This will cover the team’s entry fee and cost of practice material
  • Any addition funds left over can go toward club t-shirt, gear, etc.
  • Additional funds can be determined based on what the team would like the funds to be spent on

What do the contests look like?

Are they able to win awards?

Is there opportunity for a tournament?

  • We will have a family tournament this year in the form of math baseball
  • We are currently looking for volunteers for the spring semester to help us sign up for a local tournament
