The American Math Challenge

Home school moms, listen up!  Do you find yourself spending a lot of time reteaching, reviewing and redrilling the math facts you taught your kids last year?  Stress no more.  Pop over to the American Math Challenge and register today.     

If you loved World Math Day, you are going to be so excited by the competition taking place next week. 

And if you don't know what World Maths Day is, it is a world wide competition held each March sponsored by Mathletics.com.  Our kids have had a blast taking part in this challenge and as their teacher I have been impressed at how much it improved their recall of math facts.  The big difference between these two events is that the American Math Challenge is open only to kids in the USA and it is taking place right now, instead of March, when our students most need to review those math drills.  

Practice is open now and registration closes on October 11th so don't delay.  I have copied and pasted the information below so I don't have to take time to include all the details.
