The question on a lot of our minds these days is: How can we create fun and engaging math experiences that all students can enjoy?
In the past, we've offered some engaging challenges that enabled students to have more ownership over their math journey. There were some seasonal favorites that both teachers and students looked forward to, and we were always so thrilled to see the level of participation and excitement around these challenges. At MIND, we know that one size doesn't fit all when it comes to your school's unique goals and student needs, that’s why we’ve replaced our seasonal challenges with a six-step ST Math Usage Challenge Toolkit!
What better way to motivate your students than by participating in a challenge that rewards student effort in more ways than one? The best part is that you can choose your own theme and timeframe! As you and your school continue the back-to-school ST Math Launch celebrations, consider some other challenges down the road that'll keep students excited about math.
