DASD students compete in Math 24 Challenge

On March 1st students from the school district’s elementary and middle schools traveled to UW- Madison to compete in a Math 24 competition.  The students earned the right to compete by winning their individual school competitions. 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.

Students who won at the school level and moved on to the competition at UW-Madison, as well as those who finished in the top six, are as follows:

  • Yahara Elementary School students, Ethan Piontek and Tavis Wilcox, took 2nd and 5th place respectively
