Earth Day is Sunday, April 22. This year’s theme is to end plastic pollution. Celebrate with your math class this year and remind students to recycle, reuse, and reduce. The first 10 classrooms to send us their Earth Day Math Problem (with solution) will receive a packet of Earth Day pencils made from recycled newspaper for their students.

Submit your math problem by end of day Friday, April 13 to earthday@ascendmath.com. Be sure to include the name of your class, school and location. Then on Monday April 16 check out the Ascend Math blog to see all the problems that were submitted. Choose your favorites to share with students to celebrate Earth Day.

Try these links for numerous Earth Day Facts and Figures just crying out for you and your students to turn into a fun math problem.

Again, send your math problems to earthday@ascendmath.com
