Wedgwood Math Madness

Wedgwood Elementary Math Students Surpass 8 and 9 Million Problems Solved During Same Week Using First in Math 


WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP – Over the course of just four days, Wedgwood Elementary School students surpassed the 8 million and 9 million marks in math problems solved using the First in Math online program. Wedgwood classes have been competing in a school-wide First in Math March Madness Survivor Tournament, buoying the school’s impressive total.

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.
