Math Challenge Awards

Math Challenge Awards
Posted on 03/03/2022
Math Challenge Awards Night TitleEach year, District 146 hosts a Math Challenge for students in Grades 1-8. The Math challenge determines who goes on to represent District 146 at the regional South Cook Math Bowl. 

To qualify for the Math Challenge, students take preliminary math tests at their home school. Each elementary school sends the top four students and one alternate from each grade level (first through fifth) to the Math Challenge. At the Middle School, 16 students are chosen with two alternates per grade level.

The Math Challenge consists of three events. Two are individual events: Mental Math and Computation.  One is a team event where students from different schools meet to work together to solve problems. The top two students in each grade level earn a spot to represent District 146 at the South Cook Regional Math Bowl.

All Math Challenge participants were recognized on February 24 at the Math Challenge Awards Night. Awards were given to first, second, and third place finishers in the two individual events, and the team event winners for each grade were announced.
