Do the Math – competition

Posted by Texas Education on August 31, 2008

‘Do the Math’ starts Wednesday

Here’s something ALL elementary math teachers should know about. Math can take you places is a joint venture with KERA and Travelocity that uses real-life travel senarios to make math fun for kids in grades fourth through sixth.

KERA’s “Do The Math” competition starts Wednesday and runs through Nov. 3. Texas math teachers and students in kindergarten through sixth grade are invited to submit original math word problems and activities illustrating how math is used in the real world.

Submissions should focus on one of five algebra readiness concepts: patterns, equivalency, measurement, reasonableness and problem solving. The activity should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete.

Details and entry forms are available here or call the KERA Educational Resource Center at 214-740-9209.
