Do you want a challenge? Try Academic Games. It’s an after-school club where students who like math have competitions to match their math skills.
Cassey Keyes said “I love Academic Games because it gives me a challenge and I love math. Keyes has been it the club for three years and says it’s a very good lesson for kids who need help in math.
Most people say, “Huh? How do you solve that?” But people that join Academic Games know exactly how to solve it!
Kaylee Mullen said “Most people say, “Why join Academic Games if you have math class? But for me its about how I love challenges.” Lots of students and teachers enjoy it.
Fatima Najdi said “we go to Academic Games and learn lots of new strategies, but what I love most is winning tournaments because I feel I accomplished my goals and it makes me feel good.”
You have to have good sportsmanship to play. Kaylee said, “You have to be nice, so the rule is shake hands after.” Mrs. Furlow, the Academic Games teacher, enjoys it a lot. She is also a 7th grade math teacher.
Academic Games is fun. Next year, go try it out!
