WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP – Wedgwood Elementary School students in first through fourth grade have solved more than 3,000,000 (3 million) problems this school year 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 virtual stickers for each problem solved correctly.

They include (left to right): Front row – Arianna Laneader (grade 2), Khloe Rodriguez (grade 1) Carlotta Costello (grade 1) and Jacob Franchi (grade 3); Back row – Adonella Dempsey (grade 2), Lydia Krueger (grade 1), Andrew Huynh (grade 3) and Katie Wichert (grade 4).
