The Math Olympics Test both the Mind and the Body
The Math Olympics were held on October 9th, 2016. The Math Olympics were a fun way for math students to get out of the classroom and into the sun.
There were four different stations set up outside on the CHS track that included playing games while solving equations.
One group was Mrs. Schultz. Her group contained about 20 students who were all solving math problems. If their answer was correct they got a point, they also had to do pull-ups, push-ups, and use a balloon as a volleyball.
Another group was Mrs. Del Pozo. In her group they were solving order of operation equations and for every answer the students got correct they did a small lap up and down the track in a tricycle. She called it the “Tour DE Math”. During the event Mrs. Del Pozo said “As of right now my class is in the lead and I think we might win.”
It was a tough competition full of bright young mathematicians working hard to win while having fun outside the classroom. In the end, Mrs. Del Pozo’s class won the math Olympics.
