"Math 24" Competition
Tournament for Grades 4-6
Armstrong School District students will participate in the fast-paced Math 24 tournament, which is an academic competition for students in grades four through six.
The annual District-wide Math 24 competition for eligible students in grades 4, 5, and 6 will be held on Thursday, April 19, 2012 at 6:00 PM at West Hills Intermediate School.
The game requires not only math skills but the ability to think quickly under pressure. To play the game, the students must add, subtract, multiply and divide four numbers on a game piece to arrive at the number 24. During the competition, three to four students will be seated around a table. The first person to discover the solution must be the first to touch the card and then explain how they arrived at the number 24.
