Description: Students participating in a Math-A-Thon obtain sponsors and earn prizes by completing "funbooks" of math problems such as hidden messages, puzzles, and pure arithmetic operations. Proceeds from this supplemental math program build an endowment fund to ensure St. Jude's continued efforts in research and treatment of childhood catastrophic diseases such as cancer. Open to participation for children in grades K-9 across the United States, Math-A-Thon began in the late 1970s. The website also offers online games such as Number Blaster and puzzles such as Math Squares, E-cards to send, and screensavers to download.
