On Tuesday, February 24th, (note change from 17th which was a snow day) Middle School students are scheduled to participate in a math contest sponsored by the Math League. The goal is to encourage student interest and confidence in mathematics through solving worthwhile problems. Many students first develop an interest in mathematics through problem-solving activities such as these contests. Schools compete in statewide or multistate league competitions. Sixth Grade will participate in the 30 minute contest at 2:00 PM, 7th Grade at 8:55 AM and 8th Grade at 10:25 AM.
Information on the contests can be found on the Math League Website.
Participation in the contest will not affect a student’s grade or class standing, and is solely for the opportunity to experience a competitive activity in mathematics.
