Our EY 24 Math Competition Team was small but mighty! This year 3rd graders were invited to participate. Their rounds were for fun rather than competition. Vincent was our lone 3rd grade representative but he is now recruiting friends for next year! Representing 4th grade were Jack, Michael, and Vada, while our 5th graders were Norris, Tanner, Trevor, and Ty. All 7 of our 4th and 5th graders qualified for the quarterfinal rounds for their respective grade levels and ultimately Trevor captured 3rd place and Ty was the champion. Congratulations to all 8 of our “mathletes” and thank you for representing Ewing Young with solid math skills and great sportsmanship!
Ewing Young was well represented by seven students at the district’s annual 24 math competition. Fourth graders Jonas, Norris, and Ty along with fifth graders, Emily, Gracie, Grant, and Ronak, joined over 80 other students from around the district. All students had to use their quick mental math skills to make four digits total 24. Ty, Emily, Grant, & Ronak all qualified for the quarter-finals, with Ty, Emily, and Ronak advancing to the semi-finals. Special congratulations go to Ty and Emily for placing 2nd in their respective grade levels!
On Saturday we had 10 of our EY students spend their morning at the 24 competition:
The Ewing Young contingent to the 24 competition was smaller than it has been for many years, but as always, they represented our school well! The 4th grade team was made up of Joy, Alina, Abbey, and Paige. Six boys made up the 5th grade team: Brock, Hunter, Brogan, Taylor , Weston and Alex. Each of these players participated in 3 rounds and scored many points. Quarterfinals are the top 16 from each grade level. Here the competition changes and students may have to make totals of any number 0-48. Paige and Abbey qualified for 4th grade quarterfinals! At the 5th grade level Brock, Hunter, Brogan, Taylor and Weston all advanced. From the quarterfinals, the top two competitors at each table advance to the Semifinals. EY had four of the top eight 5th graders: Brock, Hunter, Brogan, and Weston. Both Hunter and Brogan advanced to the Final Four with Brogan capturing 4th place and Hunter placing 1st! All ten students exhibited good sportsmanship and worked hard today.
