Math Matters

At least to Sam...

Who participated in the MathMatters annual math contest for 5th graders.

About 130 kids registered to compete in the contest which was held at his school today.

Of the top ten winners, nine were from either Mabel Hoggard Math and Science Magnet School or the Alexander Dawson School (a local private school). Sam was the ONLY student from Coral Academy of Science to place.

Sam finished in Fourth place - just short of winning one of the "prizes" but was still rewarded with a new board game.

Another fine addition to Family Game Night.

Great Job Sam!!
