Getting Started – Overview

How Does Our Group Get Started?

There are many time-tested methods for organizing and implementing the Math Pentathlon® Program. This section of our website, Getting Started, offers teachers and parents several ways to structure the Program. In addition, teaching recommendations, sample communications of how other coaches have organized the Math Pentathlon® Program, and funding sources are suggested.

School/Club Contact Designee Online Form

Pg 35 Hex 4

If your involvement with the Math Pentathlon Program is by school/club, we ask that you designate a representative to be your group’s primary contact and complete the Math Pentathlon School Contact Designee (SCD) Form.  This representative will receive all communication from the Pentathlon Institute to share with others. The school principal must approve the SCD unless this is a club that does not practice at a school. If approved, the SCD may access their preliminary tournament database.
