  4. Students sat at tables of four, teachers served as proctors.

  5. Over 125 4th and 5th grade students participated in the tournament.

  6. Comments from teachers: • Though my students did not do as well as they hoped, they had a fabulous time and are motivated to work harder for next year. • Thank you for reviving the live 24 Tournament, it is more meaningful to students than the online version.” • There was so much excitement in the room and the kids really had a fun time.

  7. This year’s tournament was for 4th and 5th graders. Next year the tournament will expand to include 4th through 8th graders and take place on two different days.

  8. Object of MATH 24 • Using the four numbers given, add, subtract, multiply, and/or divide to get 24. • Single digit cards like the one shown here. • Cards are in three levels, this is a level 2 card.

  9. One possible solution Last step first: 30 – 6 = 24 Start at beginning: 6 x 5 = 30 5 + 1 = 6 30 – 6 = 24

  13. Comments from teachers: • Is there something in the water in Cocalico? Those kids were AMAZING. • I was very happy to be part of the day and have some ideas brewing in my head to excite the staff and students in my schools with MATH 24. • Thank you for running a seamless competition for our children to enjoy and showcase their diligence. We are already thinking about next year.

  14. Each student received a t-shirt for participating in the tournament. The lesson we learned for next year, remove the rubber band from the t-shirt before giving it to the students – rubber band wars.

  15. Very heavy trophy… nah, it’s just plastic. The top finalist won this trophy. The top 8 finalists won a medal.
