The Mathematics Pentathlon ® is a program of interactive problem-solving games, supportive curricular and instructional activities, and assessment tools for students in grades K-7. This motivational program strengthens basic math concepts and skills, aligns with STEM and National and State Mathematics Standards, and stimulates creative thinking while developing problem-solving skills. A focus on conceptual understanding and the integration of spatial, computational and logical reasoning are key attributes of Mathematics Pentathlon. By using specially designed games and activities that differentiate instruction, ALL students of varying abilities and learning styles are motivated to enjoy math and spend more time learning this subject matter. These factors are critical in improving studentsí performance in math. This exciting, engaging, and effective program can be implemented in multiple ways: Classroom Instruction, Math Clubs, National Academic Tournaments, Enrichment, and Home Use.

The Mathematics Pentathlon Program of strategic games, activities, and assessments also develops an essential futuristic ability known as active problem solving - Problem Solving Chart.

A significant study conducted in one of the largest school districts in the United States compared students who participated in the Mathematics Pentathlon Program-MPP with students who did not participate. 100% of MPP students passed on the first round of testing including 5% who were special needs students. Even more compelling -- 77% of MPP students scored above 90% which ranked them as Commended in Mathematics by the State Board of Education. Click on this link to CHECK IT OUT!

"Exciting and comprehensive program"
"Helped many of my students increase their problem solving ability, confidence with mathematics, and deeper understanding of math concepts"
"Bridge the home to school connection and increase community involvement"

Mathematics Experience-Based Approach (MEBA) is an instructional system for teaching and assessing mathematics from a conceptual and problem-solving perspective. In essence, MEBA fosters mathematical understanding by building deliberate connections between and among physical models, pictures, and symbols/algorithms. Moreover, MEBA's framework facilitates students' ability to image mathematics concepts in the mind's eye. All MEBA strategies and skills align with Academic National and State Standards for math. In summary, MEBA develops an understanding and meaning of mathematics that lasts a lifetime, can be applied in numerous "real-life" problem-solving contexts, and grows to meet the world's challenges and changes.
