Dear Parents and Students:
Pottstown School District is proud to
announce the fourth year of Math Olympiad for our fourth grade students to
compete against other Pottstown Elementary School Buildings. Your child has been selected to represent the
current champions from last year’s “team” competition for Franklin Elementary.
This is an academic club that is
designed to be voluntary, fun, “extra-challenge” program that will enhance the
development of your child’s problem solving skills. We will be focusing on helping your child
develop a deeper conceptual understand of, and appreciation for,
mathematics. This will be accomplished
by engaging the children in a variety of problem-solving activities during
which each student will actively work, communicate, collaborate, and reflect on
their chosen methods of solution, as well as their new-found knowledge – of
both the mathematical content and themselves as a learner.
