Advanced Math Club Strikes Gold…Again!

            The St. Rose School Advanced Math Club has been notified that its Gold Level Project received the Gold Level Award -- the highest level --  for the ninth consecutive year.   Currently St. Rose the only school in CT to have reached the Gold Level this year.

Last November, the students began planning, researching and creating their project during the club’s once-a-week meetings. This year the assignment was to create a high level mathematical game using middle grade math concepts.  The students decided to create a bingo board game using concepts involving the conversion between fractions, decimals and percents.. The game, entitled “Mango Bingo” is designed for Grades 5-7.

            Upon reviewing the submission, The National Math Club announced that it was complete and satisfied all the requirements noting “this is an extremely commendable accomplishment. 

St. Rose School is listed on the Gold List on the MATHCOUNTS website:  

Each student received their Gold Level Certificate and the school receive its ninth banner from the National Math Club.  “We are extremely proud of what our Mathletes accomplished in this year-long challenge.  They show a great level of commitment and effort,” said Ms. Elaine Smith, Advanced Math Club Moderator.

  Way to go, Mathletes!
