March 7, 2023:  A Fantastic Math Field Day

March 7, 2023: A Fantastic Math Field Day

On Tuesday, March 7, a team of 25 Saint Maur students, from Grades 6-12, participated in Math Field Day. Math Field Day is a competition involving 12 schools from the Kanto Region in which students display their knowledge and enthusiasm for Mathematics.

The students completed individual, grade-level specific timed tests and challenges in which they collaborated in teams with students from other schools in the Kanto Region. As it was a beautiful Spring day, the students were able to take a break from the competition to enjoy lunch under the blue sky. Of particular note, one of our Grade 11 students earned Third Place on the individual test. For many participants on the team, this was the first time they participated in a Math competition. As such, they are to be commended for taking up the challenge to compete. All in all, it was a fantastic day of learning, collaboration, and competition. A big congratulations to our team of Saint Maur Mathematicians!
