Oklahoma Math Challenge

Date/Time

Feb 18, 2017
08:00 AM until 12:00 PM

Description

Mathematics is so much more than 1+1 or 2+2. Not only is understanding such basics crucial to the daily functions of adult livelihood including calculating money, understanding the time and gauging travel distance; more so, advanced math is critical to career paths such as science, nursing, engineering, becoming a doctor and even obtaining a business degree. As such, Dove Public Charter Schools (Dove) will once again recognize mathematics as an important pillar in the education system and life with its annual Oklahoma Math Challenge.

Designed to engage students with a passion for mental contests, the Oklahoma Math Challenge will be 8 a.m. to noon Feb. 18 at Dove Science Academy Tulsa, 280 S. Memorial Drive.

The event is open to any interested fifth through eighth grade student.

By providing different learning opportunities like the Oklahoma Math Challenge, Dove hopes to engage underserved communities and promote inter-school interaction and collaboration. Panton Okon, math teacher, said fun events like the math competition can provide encouragement that teachers and students need to keep our community healthy and thriving.

The Oklahoma Math Challenge furthers Dove’s mission to help create awareness of the importance of math and its applications as well as create an interest for math and foster positive youth interaction through the avenue of the mutual interest in math.

Within two categories — one for fifth and sixth graders and one for seventh and eighth graders — students will answer multiple choice questions from various math topics, such as, patterns, algebraic reasoning, number sense, operations, computations, geometry, measurement, data analysis and probability.

To register or get a detailed schedule, visit mathchallengeok.com. The registration deadline is Feb. 15. There is no fee to register.

Awards for each age category include an iPad Mini 2, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, Kindle FireHD, medals for 1st-15th places and all participants will receive an Oklahoma Math Challenge certificate.

“It’s important for students to know, yes, this is a competition, but that we just want students to do the best that they can. Participation is the key. Coming to a competition and just being in that environment does something. It’s invigorating!” Okon said.
