Note: Practice competitions are meant for use in a second one-hour class
on a weekly basis. They reinforce recently learned concepts and give
students practice working in teams. Practice competition subjects conform
to the Washington State Essential Math Learnings concepts and procedures,
namely:
- Number sense
- Measurement
- Spatial Sense
- Probability and Statistics
- Functions and Relationships

Practice competitions also will teach students the concepts of problem
solving, reasoning, communicating, and making connections. All these
concepts conform to the NCTM Mathematics
Standards.
