Conejo Valley students put their math skills on display Oct. 18 and 19, earning money for local schools and winning prizes for themselves in the Mathnasium of Oak Park 2014 TriMathlon contest.
In the U.S. and Canada, Mathnasium TriMathlon participants raised about $40,000 for local schools.
“Our Mathnasium of Oak Park TriMathlon contest was a big success with students and parents alike this year, demonstrating clearly that math can be fun,” says Rangu Mandyam, owner of the Mathnasium of Oak Park franchise. “The fact that the children raised money for local schools just for participating added a level of community service to the contest. Everyone who participated should be proud of what they’ve accomplished for their schools, their community, and themselves.”
