It’s that time of the year again for the 4th and 5th grade Math 24 Tournament. Math 24 is a competition where a card is shown with four numbers. Students need to get the card to equal 24 by doing any combination of the following: addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. Prior to the tournament, all 5 elementary schools held competitions in their own buildings to determine a finalists from their 4th and 5th grades. About 750 students participated in the competition. Once a winner is chosen from each elementary school, the students move on to the Hatboro-Horsham school district Math 24 Tournament held at Keith Valley middle school.
