Math Pentathlon: A Way of Thinking

Nideesh participated in the Math Pentathlon® Program, 1st through 7th grades, in the Michigan/Ohio National Tournament Center, Troy School District. In this exclusive interview, Nideesh shared how much this experience impacted him and how he wanted other students to benefit from the thinking process that he experienced in his years as a Pentathlete. In 8th grade, Nideesh initiated the expansion of the MP Program within the district by coaching 1st graders at Hamilton Elementary. Now in his freshman year of high school, he has increased Troy SD involvement to yet another elementary school. To spread this initiative, Nideesh has recruited several of his high school friends, also former Pentathletes. See Interview Here
