Two student teams qualify for nationals in virtual math tournament

Seven student teams, comprised of 3rd to 8th grade students, competed on Jan. 29 and 30 against dozens of others in the virtual NJ Perennial Math Tournament.

This virtual math challenge competition is open to all students across the state. Each participating school has one team of up to five students selected to represent each grade level. The teams competed through videoconferencing software called WebEx Chat Room. A timed competition, students worked together quickly to answer varying levels of math equations. 

Students were selected to participate based on the standards-based rubric supported by the New Jersey Mathematics Learning Standards, teacher recommendations, grades, and in-district benchmark assessments.

All students received certificates of participation. They will also receive a T-shirt and dog tag.
