MRES Third Grade Students Take On Math Challenge

Meridian Ranch Elementary School third grade students participated in a “Math Fact” tournament, Nov. 16.

 The round robin, single elimination, “March Madness” style tournament challenged students on their multiplication facts. Arbaaz Thiam, 8, was crowned “math Champion,” receiving cheers from classmates and the overall winner’s trophy.

 “They love the competition, when I asked them yesterday who was going to win, all twenty-six hands in my class shot up so, nothing like seeing the confidence of the nine-year-olds before something like this,” said Aaron Lentner, tournament organizer, and teacher.
