More than 40 Fort Worth ISD schools are buzzing about math.
This week, the District kicked off its inaugural Elementary Math Bee Competition cycle. Students in the third- to fifth-grade will face off against one another at 43 District schools using mental math to solve number sense problems. The winner from each school contest will be recognized at the District Math Bee ceremony, Friday, May 10, 2019 at the I.M. Terrell Academy for STEM and VPA.
District-wide Math Bee competitions are underway from Friday, March 8, 2019 to Friday, April 12, 2019.
“The Math Bee is designed to highlight the students’ love of math and to gain momentum in thinking about numbers in a flexible way,” said Melvinia Robinson, elementary core curriculum and innovation coordinator in the FWISD Mathematics Department. “The Math Bee stems from the idea of Number Talks in the classroom, which helps students to build confidence in their mathematical abilities and computational fluency, opening the doors for deeper math concepts and courses.”
