Students were the MVP at Math Bowl 33

March 6, 2019 - The Curriculum and Instruction department at BCSD hosted the 33rd Annual Math Bowl at Cato Middle School last week.  Students from 27 BCSD schools gathered for a day of competition utilizing and showcasing their math skills. This year’s Math Bowl theme is “Be the MVP at Math Bowl 33!"

Students competed as individuals or teams in categories such as The Thinker, which tests the student’s problem solving skills, The Super Star, a written test of 50 standard-based multiple choice and constructed response questions, and the Traditional Relay, a fast paced crowd favorite. Participants had been preparing for months to qualify for this event.

Hilda Wright, an Instructional Specialist from the Curriculum and Instruction department, said, “One reason why Math Bowl is so great is all the student teams, coaches and district staff come together to celebrate mathematics.  We try to make today fun and bring an energy and passion to the subject.”

The day’s activities ended with a trophy and awards ceremony. Congratulations to all participants and coaches. Kudos to the Curriculum and Instruction staff for an outstanding event.
