An optional school-wide math practice program.


One problem targeting K-2 grade math standards - ORANGE.

Another problem focusing on 3-5 math standards - BLACK.


  • Multiple ways to participate

  • Electronic distribution and submission

    • With QR codes to Nearpod.com / Nearpod app

      • Use the 5 letter code provided to "join" the problem.

      • Submit a photo of a page of work or use the tools given in Nearpod to answer the problem.

    • Email Mrs. Stem with a picture of the student's work.
  • Paper copies 
    • Available via printing or near the fish tanks
    • Can be returned to Mrs. Stem or put in the completed work folder.
  • All problems will be archived on Mrs. Stem’s STEM page.

  • Trying to solve the problems is valued more than correct answers!

      • Name, Grade, Classroom Teacher

      • Numerical answer

        • In a sentence (BLACK)

        • With labels (ORANGE)

          • i.e., 5 attempts = Picture on our Super Math Hero Bulletin Board

          • 20 attempts = Pizza Party with Mrs. Stem

      • Classrooms with high participation for a month can also earn prizes

        • i.e., extra recess


  • Benefits

    • Practice with mathematical thinking, multi-step math problems, and writing about math.

    • Positive and appropriate use of technology.

    • Fits with STEM focus.
