Third Graders Participate in Math Competition

To sum it all up – Cuyahoga Heights Elementary School (CHES) third graders know their math skills! Recently, Anthony Travaglianti, Camila Rodriguez, Josh Dunnell, Jack Gibas, Jonah Lang, Kasey Kaliszewski, Maximus Gilbert, Penny Rodemann, and Stella Holzworth demonstrated their prowess by participating in this year's Noetic Learning Math Contest (NLMC).


The contest is one of the largest math competitions in the United States for elementary and middle school students. Every year, more than 30,000 students across the country compete against each other. During the test, students have 45 minutes (50 minutes online) to apply the problem-solving skills and math concepts they learned in the classroom to solve twenty creative math problems independently without a calculator.


Josh earned a Team Medal for being the CHES team’s top scorer. He and his classmates Anthony, Jack, Jonah, and Penny earned Honorable Mention ribbons for scoring among the top 50 percent of students in the nation.


The goal of the NLMC is to develop students' problem-solving skills so that they will become better thinkers and better prepared for advanced STEM studies.
