Kingswood hosts District Math Challenge
Kingswood hosts Math ChallengeStudents in 1st through 8th grade from across the Dysart Unified School District participated in the annual Math Challenge on May 3-4 at Kingswood Elementary School.  All 19 of the district’s elementary schools are invited to participate and each school can enter up to three teams of six students.

There were three rounds in the Math Challenge.  The first round was a speed round containing 30 problems that students must collaborate and solve in a 15 minute timeframe.  The second and third rounds had six questions each that are focused more on problem solving and get more intense as they progress.  The second and third rounds had a time limit of 20 minutes each.

The purpose of the event was to entice, engage, and challenge students to solve math problems while along the way strengthening their math fundamentals.  Collaboration was also a strong focus of the event as teams must work together and strategize to complete the problems to the best of their ability within the time allowed.  Congratulations to all the students that participated!
