Kent Place Primary School Students Made Their Mark in Math League Competition

Kent Place Primary School Math League Team

On Tuesday, March 26, 15 Kent Place third, fourth and fifth grade Primary School girls, five from each grade, traveled to Far Hills Country Day School to participate in an independent school Math League Competition. Kent Place had great success winning numerous individual and grade team trophies. The fifth grade team achieved the highest score at the event, even outscoring the sixth grade teams.

The 15 girls competed against third, fourth, fifth and sixth grade teams from various local co-ed schools during the three-hour event. The Kent Place team was advised by the Primary School Math Coordinator Maureen Kroeger and assisted by fifth grade teacher Sally Snyder. Over 59 students expressed a desire to participate in the math competition by sitting for an initial assessment, which was used to determine the three KPS grade-level teams.
“We did not know what to expect as we had not participated in an event like this before. The team was well prepared and had clear understanding of test rules, scoring procedures, and test taking strategies. I was delighted not only with the results of competition but also with the level of excitement about mathematics, generated by the students who represented our school and as well as those who tried out!” said Mauren Kroeger, Primary School Math Coordinator.
The Math League Competition is an international competition that tests mental math, computation and problem solving skills. The Kent Place team participated in the district contest. The individual and team winners (5th place and up) are invited to the state competition in May.
