Each spring our Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Graders participate in the Maryland Math League Contest. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, only our Sixth Graders were able to participate this year.
The Math League is an organization dedicated to bringing challenging mathematics materials to students. Each year they sponsor a contest designed to stimulate interest and confidence in mathematics for students from 4th grade through high school. Over 1 million students participate in Math League contests across the country each year. We participate in the Maryland Contest which includes schools from DC. The contest problems are designed to cover a range of mathematical knowledge for each grade level.
Students in Sixth Grade have 30 minutes to complete 35 problems. Our top five scores are combined for an NPS team score which is sent in to the math competition. This year's class did the best of any class in recent years. Our team score of 126 earned us First Place in DC and Third Place among schools that participated throughout Maryland and DC.
For the third year in a row, Ben B. earned first place at NPS. His score of 30 also earned him first place in DC and third overall in Maryland and DC. Great job Ben!
Second place, with a score of 26, goes to Kara L. Kara finished 3rd in DC and 10th overall among all participants.
Third place honors go to Burke D. who scored 25. His score placed him 16th overall.
Daniela B. finished in Fourth Place at NPS and 20th overall.
Finally Finn Haas and Harrison Leggett each scored 21 points which contributed to our team score and earned them a Fifth Place finish at NPS.
Congratulations to all our winners. You made up proud!
