Students encouraged to join 12 Days of Paper math challenge through Dec. 20


The Mississippi Department of Education encourages students in grades 3-12 to participate in a fun 12 Days of PAPER Challenge over the next two weeks.

Fueled by a clever backstory and grade-level appropriate questions, students in all participating school districts are invited to enter this challenge by logging into PAPER from Dec. 5-20, to complete as many math-inspired missions as possible.

All math questions are aligned to the Mississippi College- and Career-Readiness Standards for mathematics.

The top 15 students with the most missions completed in each of the six regions of the state will win a prize box sent to the school. PAPER and MDE will give away 90 prizes to students across the state.  Please share this information with students, parents and educators in your school/district.

Local level support is also available to help spread awareness in your community.  Contact the Customer Success Manager (CSM) in your region if you would like to receive additional support.
