ZENO Monthly Challenge Board Questions
The monthly math challenge is a colorful bulletin board posted on the wall directly across the hall from the front office. The board is an invitation to the entire school community to participate in a math problem (one problem for K-2 and another for grades 3-4) each month. The challenges give students a low pressure way to stretch their problem solving skills independently or with the help of friends or family. It lets students see that math doesn’t just occur during the daily math lesson. The monthly question can be obtained in 3 ways: 1) teachers may opt to send the question home in students’ backpacks, 2) forms will be located in a pocket on the challenge board, and 3) the question can be downloaded by clicking the links below.

Students may submit their answers to their teachers or by placing them in the Challenge Board box located in the front office. At the end of the month, there will be a drawing to recognize two students with the correct answer. There will also be a math game awarded to the classroom with the greatest participation. Let’s give math a boost and encourage all of our kids to participate in this fun challenge!
