The Second of Three Math Meets Held at the Newburgh Armory
On February 16th, 81 NECSD fifth grade scholars gathered at the Newburgh Armory to participate in the second of three Math Meet Competitions. Scholars from all across the district were selected to participate in the 2021-2022 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. During each of these meets, students are mixed up into nine teams and each team has a representative from all nine elementary schools. Students 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 future Board of Education meeting.
A special "Thank you" to NECSD's Acting Deputy Superintendent, Ms. Onyx Peterson, for taking the time to speak to scholars of the importance of math and how she uses it daily to better their lives.
Another special "Thank you" to Newburgh's own Jerome Pickett, Executive Vice President and Chief Security Officer of the National Basketball Association for providing a video explaining how he uses math in his daily life and work.
