Rogers Park Middle School students just recently participated in the Noetic Learning Math Contest, and have a chance at national recognition for their problem-solving skills.

Last Thursday, twenty six students from Rogers Park Middle School competed in this national math contest, which encourages students interest in math, develops problem-solving skills, and inspires them to excel.

The top 50% of all students taking the test nationwide will be listed by name on Noetic’s website. Also, if a school team places in the top 10%, the school will receive national recognition and a plaque. This is the first year Rogers Park students have participated in the competition.

Rogers Park sixth-grade math teacher, Kim Moran, explained on the Danbury Public School's Facebook Page what was expected of the students and what the actual test was all about.

The students had 45 minutes in which to solve 20 problems. Students who competed in the first level of the competition were required to solve “outside the box” type problems in a limited time frame.
They were really excited about the whole competition, one student spent three hours studying for it.

The actual results of this Math contest won't be available till early December, so students will have to wait a few more weeks to see if they made the grade.
