A dozen seventh and eighth grade students participated in the “Guess My Slope” competition before school this morning at Rolland-Warner Middle School.
The students guessed the slope of items from around the school and the District — band instruments, buildings, stop signs, etc.
The winners were:
Stephen Pake – seventh grade – first place ($10 gift card from NGC)
Ray Schultz – eighth grade – second place (tie) ($5 gift card from Tim Horton’s)
Kyle Newsome – eighth grade – second place (tie) ($5 gift card from Tim Horton’s)
Steven Stryvinski – eighth grade – third place (Timbits)
This is the first of a monthly series of real-life math applications for middle school students.
Great job everyone!
