Last weekend, TriMathletes across the country gathered at participating Mathnasium locations to flex their math muscles, raise money for local schools, and have a great time at the Sixth Annual Mathnasium TriMathlon!

For six years running, elementary students in 2nd through 5th grades have flocked to their neighborhood Mathnasium centers to test their math skills in their local TriMathlon. This fun, free community math competition tests a mathlete’s mental agility through three math challenges:
- The Counting Game: Count from any number, to any number, by any number.
- Magic Squares: Use creativity to create your own number sentence using a given selection of numbers.
- Mental Math Workout: Set aside your calculator, pencil, and paper; enter our algorithm-free zone; and tell us how you’d solve a math problem… the number sense way.

Every student who competed received a goody bag and certificates for their participation, with the top three competitors at each grade level walking away with medals commemorating their accomplishments!

The TriMathlon also presented an opportunity to give back to the community—Mathnasium donated $10 to local schools and parent leader groups for every student who participated!
We’re so proud of all TriMathletes, who did their very best as they worked through our three tough math challenges (we think they all deserve an A+ for effort)...

California, MD – You’ve heard it before—“you can work hard or you can work smart.” That would seem like a good approach to the subject of mathematics. Many students find this one subject to be a deal-breaker when it comes to embracing the idea that learning is fun. Instead of presenting math as a burdensome subject, Kama Friedman has found that the same mindset that is applied to making physical activity fun works for math as well.

Final scores are in for the Fifth Annual Mathnasium TriMathlon—Mathnasium’s annual elementary school (grades 2 to 5) math event held over the course of one weekend at Mathnasium Learning Centers across the US and Canada! We think we can all agree that this was one for the books—student participation raised over $37,000 for community schools! Congratulations to our 208 participating centers and our 3,800 TriMathletes for a job well done—we received a ton of great feedback and photos and really appreciate how excited everyone was this year.
On October 24 and 25, 60 TriMathlon finalists from 49 Mathnasium centers competed in the Grand Prize Tiebreaker. This year’s Grand Prize Tiebreaker invited students to use their mathematical creativity using PEMDAS mathematical operations and two given numbers to get as close as possible to a third number without being equal to that number.
Grand Prize Winners
Congratulations to our 12 Grand Prize winners! This year, our winners received...

Alexander Burnham, a grade 4 student at Wawa’s École Saint-Joseph, was recently able to put his mathematics skills to good use at the Mathnasium’s TriMathlon competition. Highly motivated by mathematics, Alexander came to Sudbury on October 17 and 18 to compete in this competition.
