Students from Chelsea Intermediate School recently competed in the Noetic Learning Math Contest. The students were led by special area teachers Leigh McLemore and JoBeth Robbins.
The Noetic Learning Math Contest is an elementary math problem solving contest held twice a year with over 12,000 students participating. Students participated at their home schools and then submitted their scores online through the organization’s website.
Fourth grader Sam Borkent and fifth grader Gavin Jones were the winners of their teams. Both Sam and Gavin were also named to the national honor roll,
which is awarded to the top ten percent of participating students in the country.
The following students received national honorable mention: Taylor Duzan, Wesley Lamberson, Patrick Shaw, Christian Ferguson, Julia Ferlisi, Elise Gasser, Rachel Moore, Alexandria Dennis, Connor Guess and Josie Thomas.
“The purpose of participating in the contest is to stimulate our students’ interest in math and to inspire them to excel in math,” said McLemore. “The contest results show that our students can rise to the occasion and can meet the challenge. It also demonstrates our students’ great math skills and talents.”
