Math Mania Tournament Coming this Spring!
South Central Service Cooperative is excited to announce a new opportunity for area students in grades 6–8 to demonstrate their skills in mathematics. Through a partnership with Mankato Area Community Education and Recreation and Math Olympiads for Elementary and Middle Schools (MOEMS®), SCSC will offer the Math Mania Tournament on March 31, 2017.
Teams of five students will participate in individual, team and playoff rounds of competition surrounding mathematical thinking and problem solving. Coaches are provided sample problems in advance of the competition and solutions for reviewing with teams afterward. Team and individual awards will be presented at a ceremony following the competition.
Schools or other youth groups are invited to form teams, or students can register individually and will be placed on teams for the competition. Participation in this first year will be limited so register early. We look forward to seeing all our “math maniacs” in March!
