Critical Thinking Challenge
Eye Level presents Critical Thinking Challenge
for 3rd to 6th Graders in 2017 Spring Semester
$1000 grand prize.
The Critical Thinking Challenge is a team competition, open to all individual students from grades 3 – 6, in order to promote the practical application of mathematics, encourage teamwork, build confidence, and increase their learning skills - all while having FUN!
80% of adults "strongly agree" that K-12 schools should teach critical thinking to students, according to a Gallup poll on American attitudes toward public education. While achievement in the classroom may depend on mastery of content in core subject areas such as math and reading, Gallup says it also "depends on more than knowledge of core content. Critical thinking , creativity, communication, and other soft skills, as well as student physical and social well-being, are also necessary for future success in higher education and in the workplace."
