Program GoalTo enrich gradelevel mathematics education by exposing students to areas of mathematics not covered in the curriculum while reinforcing skills required to master gradelevel learning objectives. Program DescriptionThe program uses the math contest administered by The Math League and additional historicallybased materials and fashions them into fun activities for students including math games, math songs, outdoor activities, applications of mathematics to solving practical problems, such as measuring the height of a tree. The program for each grade culminates in the students participating in a math contest administered by The Math League. 4^{th} and 5^{th} grade results are for internal use only. The 3^{rd} grade students do not compete in The Math League contest. All students will be encouraged to make use of the newly launched Math Contests Online and the Adaptive Learning System from The Math League. This new tool allows students and parents to take old math contests, view answers and solutions, and track their progress for a modest fee (currently $19.98 for six months of access or $35.96 for 12 months of access). 3rd Grade Math EnrichmentSince this is students' first exposure to mathematics enrichment, the emphasis is on fun. A variety of indoor and outdoor activities and games are planned to cover material outside the curriculum. Students are introduced to some famous mathematicians in history.4th and 5th Grade Math EnrichmentFourth and fifth grade math enrichment focuses even more on activities based on famous mathematicians from history. Each meeting students are introduced to a "mathematician of the week." They then complete indoor and outdoor activities related to the work of that mathematician. Additionally, students participate in math games, and work on contest questions. Students will devote some time to peerdiscussion of problem solutions. Sample Outdoor Activities
