Our mission is that every student leaves a MATHLETES event feeling better about themselves, their abilities, their classmates and the subject of math than they did before they arrived.
Further, we aim to provide an environment which allows teachers to both participate and observe their students in a variety of math activities while in a team context giving valuable insight into students’ strengths & challenges that might not be easily observed in the classroom setting.
Testimonials“It was worth every penny to walk into the gym at the end of the day and see such a total level of engagement and enthusiasm on absolutely every student’s face!” “There was a whole lot more happening in the room than just Math and all of it is what kids need to grow and learn as a community!” Read more
How It Works?
Your gym is divided into four ENGAGING math zones with students moving through each zone working together in teams to complete as many math activities as possible in four timed periods.Teams are coached by intermediate students who take part in a 45 minute leadership training prior to the arrival of the participants. Music, visual images & high energy fuels the day with scores being tabulated & celebrated at the end of each zone motivating students to keep working towards a common GOAL of completing THOUSANDS of MATH QUESTIONS together in one day! MATHLETES concludes with a ribbon ceremony for ALL students to CELEBRATE their MATH accomplishments.
