Holy Cross Catholic Elementary School Grade 5 students Anthony and Raul participated in the 6th Annual PEO Sudbury Mathletics Competition at Laurentian University.
This competition introduces the wonders of mathematics in day to day life of the students, creating a passion for the application of mathematics by solving scientific and engineering problems. The competition introduces different facets of mathematics, providing hands-on experience with solving real-world problems.
The students represented Holy Cross in the junior division (Grade 5 and 6) and competed against 13 other teams of students from across the City. The two boys worked as a team to answer 30 math questions, given only 2 minutes for each question. Through great teamwork and communication, Anthony and Raul successfully placed 8th out of the 13 teams. The boys enjoyed the challenge and are looking forward to competing again next year. Congratulations on a job well done boys!
