Four students at Yahara Elementary School will represent their school at the regional Math 24 Challenge at Memorial Union in Madison on March 4.    Owen Chambers, Gabe Kennedy, Tyler Tisch and Alternate Caleb Ekezie were the four top-scoring students in Yahara’s month-long competition.

The Math 24 Challenge requires students to make four numbers on a card total 24 by adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing each number once.  The game improves skills such concentration, mental math, number sense, problem solving, and pattern finding.
