“Our Mathnasium of New Hyde Park TriMathlon contest was a big success with students and parents alike this year, demonstrating clearly that math can be fun,” said Peter Abrams, owner of the Mathnasium of New Hyde Park location. 


“The fact that the children raised money for local schools just for participating added a level of community service to the contest. Everyone who participated should be proud of what they’ve accomplished for their schools, their community, and themselves.”


All participants received fun goody bags and certificates of participation. Participants who registered by Sept. 30 received a free downloadable Math Plinko game from Lakeshore. Grand Prize winners will receive Rubik’s prize packages and Mathnasium scholarships.


“The Smarties Candy Company supports the efforts and good work that are provided by Mathnasium in helping to educate our children and to prepare them to do well in their future careers,” says Eric H. Ostrow, Smarties vice president of sales and marketing.
