Churchill Road third and fourth grade students Rachel Dunleavy, Samantha Spencer, Jennifer Williams and David Ickowski’s math classes competed in Math Olympics the week of May 20. The students competed in six events: track, long jump, jump rope, basketball, field hockey and soccer. Working with a partner, each student compiled his/her times over a three-day period for the six different events, then plotted the data to look for trends. The students enjoyed getting exercise while studying mathematics.
