What a desk full of rubber chickens means to me…

It’s about that time again…. MathDice Time!

2011 MathDice Trophies have arrived, featuring with the coveted Rubber Chickens!

The trophies have arrived, and Math is in the air!  Each year, ThinkFun works with the 22 elementary schools in Arlington, VA to host a MathDice Tournament, and this year’s May 7th event is fast approaching!  Each school fields a team of 6 5th grade mathematicians who compete in weekly challenges for several months leading up to the big day.

Judging by the weekly scores I’ve seen, the competition this year is stiff!  I am so excited to see these Dicers go head to head in a few short weeks!

The 2010 Spirit Award Winners proudly display their prizes!

Curious to see a MathDice Tournament in action?  Check out my post with photos and video from last year’s competition and see what it takes to win the coveted Rubber Chicken spirit award!
