Math Is Cool Champions!

On May 20th four representatives from our fifth grade math team competed in the Masters Math is Cool tournament in Moses Lake, Washington. Previously, fifteen of our students had worked together to place first in the regional competition in Vancouver, thus qualifying Corbett for the next step.


Mia, Alexa, Olivia, and Alex vied against top teams from eleven other schools in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. They competed in six events, earning first place in three of them. Individually, all four members of our Corbett team placed in the top ten out of 51 competitors – Alex in ninth, Olivia in seventh, Alexa in fourth, and Mia in first! They earned a team score of 150 points; 23 points ahead of the second place finisher.


On April 21, 2017, eleven of our third and fourth graders traveled to Skyview High School in Vancouver, Washington, to compete in the fourth grade Math is Cool regional tournament.


There were 24 teams from eight schools in our division. Our students earned points in the individual contest, mental math, team contests, math relay, and college bowl challenges. Corbett earned third place out of eight. Nice job!


Congratulations to all, including Caleb, who was the top scorer for Corbett.


Congratulations, Mathletes!  – Mrs. Handy and Ms. DiMaggio
