A dozen Rolland-Warner students participate in ‘Guess My Slope’ competition

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!
