The Newburgh Armory Hosts 1st NECSD Math Meet of 2022-23
On Wednesday, November 16th, 81 NECSD fifth grade scholars gathered at the Newburgh Armory to participate in the first Math Meet Competition of the 2022-23 school year. Scholars from all across the district were selected to participate in the competition. Nine students were selected to participate from each elementary school based on NYS Math Test Scores, iReady scores, report cards and teacher recommendation. The nine Math Meet teams are comprised of nine total scholars; one representative from each of the nine elementary schools. Within each team, students work in groups of three to solve and communicate their mathematical understanding of various problems. Scholars 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.
