In an effort to help students improve their math skills through a fun and enjoyable approach, the students at Fickett Elementary participated in a March Math Madness event hosted by the Math & Science Coach, Mrs. Adero Carter.
“Math is fun,” Mrs. Carter explained. “I wanted the students to see this, as well, with this entertaining and engaging activity.”
Each grade level assembled in the school cafeteria where they were challenged to answer math problems in a competitive game of jeopardy. Each student received a ticket for every correct answer. Students were closely monitored by grade level teachers who cheered them on throughout the game. At the end of 2 full rounds, students redeemed their tickets for educational prizes.
