Math Coordinators;

Please share this opportunity for students with teachers in grades 6-8:

“Reel Math Challenge” is Now Accepting Submissions
URL: http://www.reelmath.org/ <http://www.reelmath.org/>

The Reel Math Challenge is a new online competition for students in grades 6-8 that encourages student innovation as they create and star in their own math videos. This free competition, sponsored by MATHCOUNTS and the Department of Defense, is designed to excite students about math while allowing them to hone their creativity and communication skills.

To participate in this free competition, students form teams of four and must utilize technology to create videos based on one of the math problems included in the MATHCOUNTS School Handbook, which is available as a free download from http://www.reelmath.org/latest/download.html <http://www.reelmath.org/latest/download.html>

The videos will be posted to the Reel Math Challenge Web site, and the top videos will win prizes--e.g., electronic gadgets, scholarships, and all-expenses paid trips to Orlando. Videos will be judged on a variety of criteria: creativity, originality, mathematical accuracy, and adherence to time guidelines.

Video submissions are due by 1 February 2012. Visit http://www.reelmath.org/latest/faq.html <http://www.reelmath.org/latest/faq.html>  for more details about this competition.
