Calling all Critical Thinkers!
It’s National Pi Day, and Pizza Hut is celebrating the math nerd in us all with an opportunity to win 3.14 years of free pizza!
To win the pizza party of a lifetime, all you need to do is solve one of three math logic problems Pizza Hut posted on their website. If you’re not a math whiz, don’t shy away from the challenge. The questions are as much about logic, reasoning, and critical thinking as they are about math.
In today’s data-driven marketplace, the ability to identify relevant data and interpret it is more important than ever. While academic grades in mathematics demonstrate an ability to learn and apply mathematical techniques, they do not predict how well a person will perform when interpreting data in the workplace. For this reason, many employers test a candidate’s numerical reasoning ability during the selection process with assessments such as the Advanced Numerical Reasoning Appraisal (ANRA). Assessments like the ANRA help employers identify candidates who can identify the most important information from a set of data, compare complex quantitative information, and break down information into essential parts.
Do you have the numerical reasoning and critical thinking skills to solve a tough math logic problem?
Give your brain some exercise with the Pizza Hut Pi Day Challenge, and you may be rewarded with free pizza!
