The Chasing Einstein Challenge is a 9-week activity for 3rd-12th grade students designed to help them become creative and persistent problem solvers. The challenge is designed around the Standards for Mathematical Practice. The goal is to help teachers learn more about the Standards for Mathematical Practice and to help students become persistent and creative problem solvers that have a positive attitude about mathematics. This is a FREE activity for you and your students.
There are two options for participating in the Chasing Einstein Challenge. The first option involves collaborating with Dr. Kevin Smith and the second option involves using the resources on your own. Read details below to get started with either of these options.
