Continental Math League Top Scorers
All Continental Math League experiences are designed to improve students’ problem solving capabilities. There were five different times during the year when our Kenston Middle School students were presented with a 6 question math test. They were not allowed to use calculators and they had only 30 minutes to solve each of these tricky multi-step math problems. Then the students would review exactly how to go about solving that problem so they could learn from these challenges. Scores were then inputted into a national database and compared to other students across the country. Students were also ranked within each classroom.
Top scorers in Mrs. Sunderhaft’s classes: Walker Glime, Samuel Koltas, Benjamin Elliott, Paige Spicuzza, Thomas Meyers and Trent Krueger.
Top scorers in Mrs. Peace’s classes: Samuel Berlin, Jack Beclay, Ethan Noah, Charlotte Witmer-Rich, Julian Guirguis and Max Rossiter.
