Students at Clintonville Middle School in grades 5-8 recently participated in the Continental Math League Competition.
Each month classroom math meets were held. The meets involve solving six multi-step, real life problems. Students have only 30 minutes to complete the test.
The purpose of the meets is to connect what the math students are learning to real life, provide students with rigor, and to build perseverance in problem solving. Persevering is a skill to be applied not only in math but other subjects as well as in real life.
