On April 16, the future mathematicians of the Lakewood District elementary schools competed against each other in a battle of brains and speed.
Students in the third, fourth, and fifth grades from Roseboro Elementary and Salemburg Elementary were selected to compete in the math bowl. Selections were made based on student’s classroom performances, effort, and practice problems.
Each grade level team competed for 20 minutes, with only two minutes allowed per problem. Students worked together as a team to determine a solution, and the captain rang in with their answer. All teams put forth a great showing, but in the end the teams from Salemburg Elementary won the third and fifth grade competitions, and the team from Roseboro Elementary won the fourth grade competition.
Staff offered special thanks to Betsy Autry, Roshika Boone, Beth Dailey, Carol Radford, Denise Lewis, and Dena Starling for their collaboration and hard work. The staffs of both schools are extremely proud of our students’ effort and success, they said.
