San Francisco, CA, 23nd February 2022: The popular game-based learning program SplashLearn, today announced the 8th edition of its massively popular SpringBoard Math Challenge. The math competition is a calendar marked event and is highly anticipated by teachers across the US and Canada. SpringBoard Math Challenge 2022, open to all classes from Kindergarten to grade 5, will run from March 1 – May 8, 2022.
Participation is free for the SpringBoard Math Challenge, whichis designed to give teachers and schools the opportunity to engage their elementary school students through fun math challenges aligned to the curriculum. The 10-week challenge will allow students to master their math skills and enter the new class with confidence, whilst having fun.
Joy Deep Nath, co-founder, SplashLearn, said“SpringBoard is a math competition, but it has achieved more than that. It has grown to be a platform for social and emotional bonding for both students and teachers alike. Of course, it also helps reduce the attainment gap and ensures students are prepared for the next grade. There is a growing appreciation for SpringBoard as an effective way to challenge students in a familiar, secure and friendly setting to practice with their peers which is paramount in the present times”.
After creating an account on SplashLearn, teachers can enroll their classes for SpringBoard 2022. Once enrolled, students can immediately start solving math problems that will earn them points individually and also will add up and count towards the total class score. The best performing classes with the highest points win weekly prizes at the state and national level. The grand winners will be announced at the end of SpringBoard. Prizes worth $20,000 are up for grabs this year.
Arpit Jain, CEO, SplashLearn, said “SpringBoard, over the years has become like a tradition. It brings teachers and students together in an environment that enables competition as well as collaboration but most importantly celebrates learning. The fun competition has motivated students to stay engaged, excited and continue learning, which is so important. I wish every school the greatest success and every child happy learning”.
“SpringBoard was a fun way to revise, review and practice math concepts.” said Ann Salway, teacher of the winning class of 2021. “The fact that it is 10 weeks long, also teaches the students an important lesson of perseverance and working hard towards a long-term goal. It encourages delayed gratification which is an important life skill.” Ms. Salway added.
