North Hudson 5th Grade Math Masters

Congratulations to North Hudson’s 5th Grade Math Masters!

On Friday, April 21st, five 5th grade North Hudson students loaded a bus at 7:00 a.m. and headed to the Math Masters of Minnesota Competition in Hammond, Wisconsin. Math Masters challenges students to use critical thinking skills and problem-solving abilities in mathematics while recognizing academic effort and achievement.

The North Hudson team consisted of Graham Close, Aaron Sparling, Sarah Davis, Charlie Rode, and Nathan Prestrud. Over the past four months, these five students were coached twice a week and spent numerous hours problem solving and practicing fact drills. The competition in Hammond involved three different parts:

  • The first part was a 5-minute seventy-five problem individual fact round. This round consisted of basic facts and more complex facts requiring students to be advanced in their understanding of math computation and Order of Operations.
  • This was followed by four 10-minute individual problem-solving rounds.
  • Finally, 5th graders finished this four-hour competition with three 15-minute team problem-solving rounds.

North Hudson was so excited to have three students receive a ribbon for being in the top 12 out of 77 students participating in the Individual Fact Round.

  • Graham Close: 10th place
  • Aaron Sparling: 10th place
  • Sarah Davis: 5th  place

Additional Congratulations to Graham Close for taking 1st place in the Individual Problem Solving rounds. Graham received a score of 23/24 problems correct which is a rare achievement!

The awards didn’t end there! These North Hudson 5th graders also brought back the Third Place Math Masters of Minnesota Team Award! What a wonderful accomplishment!

5th grade team, your hard work, dedication, and persistence these past 4 months have been amazing! Thank you, also to the classroom teachers for cultivating their mathematical abilities; and parents, for supporting, encouraging and helping at home!
