Math 24 Challenge

Math 24 Challenge is a student competition for grades 4-8.  School districts/students must be a part of the Greater Dane County Advanced Learners Network to participate. The tournaments are based on five versions of the Math 24 card games produced by Suntex.  You can order cards from eNasco. See product numbers from eNasco here. Work with the games fosters basic facts, mental math, problem solving, and patterning.
