Students, teams in math bee

Apr 19, 2013

Fairfield Middle School students were participants in the Great Prairie Area Education Agency Sixth-Grade Math Bee April 12 at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center.

The event involved 47 teams from 21 school districts within the Great Prairie AEA region. A total of 218 students, including their team alternates, participated on the building-level teams.

The test covers six different areas: Number Sense & Estimation; Patterns & Functions; Geometry & Measurement; Probability & Statistics; Ratio, Proportion & Percent; and a Team Problem-Solving Round.

Individual winners included FMS sixth-grader Laurel Hilger in the top 10.

Each AEA in Iowa sends the top 10 percent of its competing teams to state competition. The State Sixth-Grade Math Bee is scheduled May 3 in Fort Dodge.

The five teams from Great Prairie AEA eligible to participate in the 2013 State Sixth-Grade Math Bee include: Central Lee Middle (first-place team); Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont School District (second-place team); Ottumwa Evans Middle School; Burlington Aldo Leopold Middle School; and Sigourney Elementary School.
