Hillside’s Yukon Math Challenge is back!

Students are busy focusing on learning math fluency facts and working towards their celebration. Each grade is working on the following:

  • 1st Grade:  Addition Facts – earn a decorated cookie
  • 2nd Grade:  Subtraction Facts – make trail mix
  • 3rd Grade:  Multiplication Facts – build a banana split
  • 4th Grade:  Multiplication/ Division Facts – make nachos
  • 5th Grade:  Division Facts – earn play money for a pizza party


How can parents help at home:

Dice Game:  Get a pair of dice and start rolling.  Use the numbers on the dice to test the appropriate math fact (i.e. 1, 6 shown – 1+6 or 6-1 or 1*6 or 6/1).

Card Games:  Grab a deck of cards and plane one of these easy games

  • Math Fact War – slap down 2 cards (1 from each player) and the first person to provide the math fact answer wins the cards (Example: Player 1 as a 4 and Player 2 has 5, the player who answers the addition question of 9 wins the cards).  Reference Point – Aces =1, Jacks = 11, Queens & Kings= 12
