Mathnasium of Miami at Sunset students put their math skills on display recently, earning money for local schools and winning prizes for themselves in the Mathnasium of Miami at Sunset 2014 TriMathlon contest.
In the U.S. and Canada, Mathnasium TriMathlon participants raised about $40,000 for local schools. Participants earned money for local schools just by participating in TriMathlon.
“Our Mathnasium of Miami at Sunset TriMathlon contest was a big success with students and parents alike this year, demonstrating clearly that math can be fun,” said Felix del Prado, owner of the Mathnasium of Miami at Sunset 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.”
