### Math 24 Competition

During the first week in May, Troy Intermediate will hold a 5th and 6th grade Math 24 competition. Each team will send their top 8 players for the tournament for a total of 24 students. The first 2 rounds are single digit timed at 10 minutes each. The top 12 point subtotals will move into the semi-finals which use both single and some double digit cards. The top 4 point subtotals will move into the final round which includes an equal amount of single and double digit cards. The first-place finisher receives a trophy. Second and third-place finishers receive a medal.
