The Mathalon is available in Premium Knowledgehook and, like a Marathon, is all about perseverance and completion. We created the Mathalon to help teachers and principals create a culture and celebration around doing math and to help students by creating a milestone moment that reminds them that "I can do math".
Here's how it works:
As students earn stars they move towards completing the Knowledgehook Mathalon.
The number of stars needed to complete the Mathalon is different for each grade but students can see their progress by going to the dropdown in the top right corner of their screen and clicking on "Mathalon"
There are two milestone moments in the Mathalon.
- Half Mathalon - earning half the stars of the full Mathalon. At this point we ship out a banner to the school for students to sign.
- Full Mathalon - earning all of the stars for the full Mathalon. At this point we ship out a badge or medal to be given to the students who complete the task.
So many teachers and schools have used the Mathalon to elevate math that of sports and other celebrated activities in the school. We can't wait to hear your story!
