Compete in our 2023 March Mathness challenge for a chance to win cool JiJi Store prizes.
Here at MIND Education, we wholeheartedly believe that penguins love basketball, which is why JiJi can't wait to see schools compete for the number one spot during March Mathness this year. JiJi and the ST Math team love basketball so much that we decided to bring the fun from the court to the classroom in our second ST Math #MarchMathnessPuzzle Challenge!
Not only are we having another March Mathness this year, but the challenge also starts on March 14, Pi Day! (Fun fact: Did you know that March 14 is also Albert Einstein’s birthday?). What better way to bring on the Mathness than by reciting as many numbers of Pi as you can: 3.14159265358… you get the idea!
If your school has ST Math, a powerful, interactivevisual math program, we highly recommend you set up a bracket and get in on the action!
Why Play the March Mathness Puzzle Challenge?
Participating in fun challenges like March Mathness is an excellent way to increase motivation and celebrate your school's love of problem solving. It's also a great way to practice grade-level math concepts in a friendly and fun competition.
How to Play?
Create your own bracket or download our March Mathness bracket and list each class that is participating in the challenge. Whoever receives the most puzzles for that week will advance to the next round. Weekly puzzle data can easily be found in your ST Math Educator Console.
Start your bracket now, and complete it by April 7 using the puzzles in ST Math. Here are some examples from schools that participated last year:
Keep us updated on your progress by tweeting a photo of your bracket or posting it on Instagram. Just make sure to tag @stmath and use the hashtag #MarchMathness. Not on social media? No problem! You can email your picture to email@example.com.
On April 12, we will randomly select three school winners from all that participate by sharing their bracket with us. Make sure to enter for your chance to win some fun JiJi Store swag! We also encourage all participants to reward their school’s March Mathness winning class.
The challenge tips off on March 14 and ends April 7. Final brackets are due by April 10, and prize winners will be announced on Wednesday, April 12. See official rules for more information.
