DARIEN, Conn. -- Darien students can test their math skills while raising funds for local schools by participating in Mathnasium's TriMathlon contest designed to show kids that math can be fun.
The competition will be held on Oct. 19 at 3 p.m. at the Darien Mathnasium learning center at 15 Corbin Drive.
“The Mathnasium TriMathlon represents a wonderful opportunity for kids to have fun, test their math skills, and earn money for local schools. It demonstrates that math can be fun and, at the same time, provides a way for the students to give back to their community, which is a wonderful lesson for kids at this age. In the Mathnasium TriMathlon, every child is a winner,” David Lubner, owner of the Mathnasium of Darien, Fairfield and Greenwich franchises said in a statement.
The contest is open to all students in Grades 2 through 5 in public, private, or home school.
Participants will have money donated to local schools for every correct answer on the TriMathlon test either through the website DonorsChoice.org, which allows schools to select whatever they need with donations accruing toward those items, or via direct donations.
The first place winners at each grade level will be invited to move on to the national TriMathlon.
