More Millions in Math

Wedgwood Elementary School Math Students Surpass 7 Million Problems Solved Using First in Math Program




WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP – It took less than two marking periods for Wedgwood Elementary School students to solve more than 7,000,000 math problems using the First in Math online program.  

First in Math was designed with focus, coherence and rigor as its cornerstones. Self-paced activities target mastery of procedural skills and fluencies that are essential for internalizing and demonstrating conceptual understanding in mathematics. Students earn stickers for every three problems solved correctly.

In the attached photo illustration above (pictured left to right) are some of Wedgwood School’s latest Grand Champions of the school year: Top row – Brynn Berk (grade 5), Cole Goehringer (grade 2), Mila Kelly (grade 1), Finnegan McMahon (kindergarten); Bottom row – Ondre Edwards (grade 5), Sadie Martin (grade 3), Zion Nalbandian (grade 2), Aubrey Deshmukh (grade 4). To become a Grand Champion, a student must solve 30,000 math problems.
