OCS elementary students competed in quite the numbers game on Thursday, April 28, as they participated in the 2022 Elementary MATHCOUNTS event.
MATHCOUNTS is a national coaching and competition program designed to stimulate students’ interest and achievement in mathematics. Teachers and volunteers coach student “mathletes” beginning each fall, continuing throughout the school year. Participating schools can select four students (and up to two alternates) to compete as a team and as individuals.
Several teams of elementary school students from across Onslow County competed in various rounds of math challenges to see who would emerge victorious. Rounds varied in task and difficulty, and the competition ended with a fast-paced, think-on-your-feet challenge called the “cyphering round.”
We are so proud of all who competed, and we extend our congratulations to all of our winners!
