The Mathalon, 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".
For PREMIUM users, official Knowledgehook medals and pennants are shipped to the school. The Mathalon is automatic and every student is automatically in it from day one. The teacher has to make sure they have their correct school and mailing address on their account, and that their class successfully upgraded to Premium and the Mathalon will automatically be processed for them. (approximately the beginning of each month between Sept and June).
Here's how it works:
A student earns a star for each unique question they answer. These can be questions assigned by their teacher, or through their SOLVE section which is their self-guided learning section available at all times in their account.
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.
- Full Mathalon - earning all of the stars for the full Mathalon.
So many teachers and schools have used the Mathalon to elevate math to the level of sports and other celebrated activities in the school.
The SOLVE section has access to enough stars to complete the Mathalon on it's own, so a teacher doesn't have to worry about assigning 250 unique questions. The teachers do not see the SOLVE section, but the questions are the same questions available to teachers in their Activities section where they can choose what activities to assign their students. Mathalon is automatic for all students in Grades 3 through 10.
