Elmont hosts first math tournament
Forty fifth and sixth grade students from the Elmont Union Free School District – Alden Terrace, Clara H. Carlson, Covert Avenue, Dutch Broadway, Gotham Avenue and Stewart Manor – competed in the first-ever District Math Tournament.
Students competed individually and as teams to answer questions that would challenge even the most avid math enthusiasts. The individual event consisted of 10 questions with a time limit of 30 minutes to complete. Awards were issued to first, second and third place winners with two honorable mentions also awarded. The team event had schools go head to head while answering 10 questions, this time with a 20-minute time limit – the advantage here was students could pool their knowledge and work collaboratively while submitting only one answer sheet. Awards were issued to the first, second and third place teams.
Congratulations to the following individual student-winners: first place – Dutch Broadway School’s Caleb Lopez, second place – Covert Avenue School’s Annie Yee, third place – Stewart Avenue’s Michael Domingo. Honorable mentions were awarded to Adithya Murali from Covert Avenue and Saera Schumacher from Dutch Broadway.
Team awards were presented to the following schools: first place – Gotham Avenue, second place – Covert Avenue (team 2) and third place – Dutch Broadway (team 2). The math tournament was a great success and the district plans to make it an annual event. Director of Curriculum Technology David Spinnato expressed his gratitude to Dutch Broadway teacher Melissa O’Brien for serving as moderator.
