At the end of the week, a raffle was held and students who earned tickets were offered a wide variety of prizes. This year’s prize collection included T-shirts, water bottles, TI-Nspire calculators and three iPad minis.
The quality of all projects submitted was outstanding and more than 65 students participated by submitting ovmore thaner 470 entries to the individual contests.
“The best part about math week is the challenge,” said Anne Fuller Math Week participant and iPad mini winner. “It gets you motivated in math in a fun way.”
