NECSD fifth grade scholars across the district were selected to participate in the 2019 Math Meet Competition at the Board of Education. Nine students were selected to participate from each elementary school, based on NYS Math Test Scores, iReady scores, report cards and teacher recommendation.

The opening session was held on November 6, 2019.  During each of these meets, students are mixed up into nine teams and each team has a representative from all nine elementary schools. The opening meet began with an icebreaker, where the students had to create five congruent squares using various shapes.  Students then decided on a team name, created a poster to represent their team, and worked through answering and explaining their first practice math problem.

There will be 3 math meet competitions, and the final meet will be an elaborate Escape the Room challenge.  During each meet, students will work in groups of 3 at each team to solve and communicate their mathematical understanding of various problems. Students are scored on mathematical knowledge, strategic thinking, and communication. Points are accumulated during each competition and the winning team is announced at the culminating Escape the Room event and honored at a Board of Education meeting.


TEACHERS: Are you and your students doing something great? Please contact your Communication Strategist. We’d love to attend or post your pictures and recap to highlight the amazing accomplishments throughout our district! Grades PreK-5 Amanda McDowell (amcdowell@necsd.net) and Grades 6-12 Cassie Sklarz (csklarz@necsd.net).
