I was invited to run a Number Sense Test at a MATHLEAGUE.ORG Middle School contest at Stanford the past weekend. I don't have full results, because we were in a rush in the grading room to get the scoring done before the end of the Countdown Round, but I do have the top three per grade (name, school, score), who received trophies from SACMATH.
First = Tomas C, Hopkins JHS, 196
Second = Jack G, Churchill MS, 173
Third = Julianna L, Lawson MS, 150
First = Kevin C, Miller MS, 195
Second = Alex H, Cupertino MS, 166
Third = Andrew Z, Hopkins JHS, 130
First = Steven H, Miller MS, 247
Second = Lewis C, Hopkins JHS, 233
Third = Aaron L, Hopkins JHS, 165;
After the contest , it was discovered that there was a scoring error. Julia H, an 8th grader from Miller MS, actually scored 238 on the test and thus was in second place. SACMATH will send Julia a trophy in early January.
Congratulations to Sacramento student Jack G, from Churchill MS, who also finished in the top 25 overall in Math, and was the top 6th Grader!
Thanks to MATHLEAGUE.ORG for a great contest and for the chance to bring Number Sense to a new group of students.
