The Actuarial Foundation’s Expect the Unexpected With Math® series, developed with Scholastic, is well-known for its distinct, interactive math resources. New to the line-up this year is a middle school math competition designed to help students practice critical thinking supported by accurate computation. Students in grades 6-8 can show off their skills with ratios and equations by solving a zany problem about a teen using her phone at the zoo…where something quite unexpected happens! Teachers have the chance to win $500, too!
