Surrey and White Rock students will soon have the opportunity to test their math skills while helping raise money for local schools.
Mathnasium’s annual TriMathlon – an event designed to encourage an interest in math for students in Grades 2-5 – is set for Nov. 5 at the South Surrey Mathnasium Learning Centre (3268 King George Blvd.).
The event will feature three competitions – Magic Squares, in which students develop their own math problems; The Counting Game, which tests students’ ability to count from any number, to anything, by any number; and the Mental Math Workout, which will challenge students to solve a problem without a pencil or paper.
Participation is free and open to all Surrey and White Rock students.
