Math Superstars
Math Superstars!!
Do you want your child to be challenged in math? Do you want your child to excel in math thinking? Do you want your child to be a better problem solver? If so, than our school and PTA have just the program for you!
NorthLake Park is beginning the Math Superstars program at the start of the 3rd nine weeks. The Math Superstars Program was developed by the Florida State Board of Education to serve as a problem-solving, enrichment program for students in grades K-5.  All students are welcome to join the program and participation is strictly voluntary. However, we strongly encourage all students who are advanced in math and need the extra challenge to take advantage of this great program. Participation in the Math Superstars program will not be reflected in student grades. Students will earn a Math Certificate at the end of the year along with a chance to win a prize if they complete the program with fidelity.
Students will receive a worksheet each week from their teacher and the worksheets are due by the following Friday. Volunteers will check the worksheets and they will be returned. The parent’s role in Math Superstars is to encourage and facilitate problem solving. During the week, allow time for your child to think about each problem. You may need to read the problem to your child, explaining any new words encountered. Feel free to suggest a strategy for solving the problem but please DO NOT GIVE THE ANSWERS.
All of the assignments can also be found on the school website at:
Below is the schedule of the dates each assignment will be due to the student’s teacher. The bottom portion of the form is the contract for both student and parent to sign. The contract will enable the parent grader to track students’ work and determine who is eligible to earn a certificate and a chance to win a prize at the end of the school year. If you would like your child to participate in the program, please sign the contract and return the bottom portion to your child’s teacher by Friday, January 13, 2012.
Please keep this top portion with the due dates for your records.
