1st Place Winners in Number Sense or Geometry

    Now that school is winding down, the Nemaha Central Elementary and Middle School math contest was held for grades 3-8 on Friday, April 27. All students would compete to solve the most problems on each test consisting of questions in the categories of number sense, geometry, and problem solving.

    The beginning test was number sense, which is a basic numerical problem test and no calculator could be used. The next test was geometry, where they solved problems involving shapes, such as finding volume or surface area. The last of the contest was a group problem solving test, where students answered word problems with kids from their grade as a team.

    In the end, there were awards given for each category. First through third place finishers received medals and Subway or Sonic coupons. Fourth through sixth place finishers received a Subway certificate for a Kid’s Pack. Schmitz’s Deli donated a sandwich or a wrap and a small fountain drink for first place winners in the problem solving category. The winning problem solving classroom received Sonic coupons.  Also a big thanks to Seneca Wholesale for providing Dr. Pepper for all students in grades 3-8.
