Clayburn Middle Wins North American Math Competition

CLAYBURN MIDDLE WINS

NORTH AMERICAN MATH COMPETITION!

Grade Six students from Mr. Piper and Mrs. Burrow's classes recently competed in the Arcademics Math Cup competition and placed 1st in North America!  The two-day math competition saw students competing in 40 hours of multiplication drills against more than 20,000 students.  Students from Clayburn Middle played individually but gathered points as a team based upon the number of problems they could correctly answer.  Our students answered a staggering 435,669 problems over the two-day event.

In addition to mastery of multiplication, students demonstrated amazing tenacity and perseverance.  Students willingly began working on the contest at 5am and played well into the night during the multi-day contest.  As well, our young Cougars sacrificed their lunch hours to relentlessly complete math questions and encourage their classmates in the pursuit of victory.
