St. Elizabeth Third Grade Math Students

World Maths Day is the largest online math competition in the world. It is hosted by the online math engine Live Mathletics, which is used by over 4 million students worldwide, including students at St. Elizabeth Elementary. The competition measures speed in arithmetic and mathematical literacy skills on the Live Mathletics website.

The students competed in math exercises online with other national and international students. They were required to complete 20 math games within their appropriate grade level, each game lasting 60 seconds. The third graders themselves were both amazed and proud of their 10th place finish and their international success. One student noted that he was competing against children from Great Britain, India, and Pakistan, but the most fun he had was competing with his own classmates.

In addition to testing math skills, the students simultaneously raised money for UNICEF through the competition. Every question answered correctly earned points, which were then converted into a cash value. The money is then donated to fund and support UNICEF schools and UNICEF projects in underdeveloped areas.

The third grade students are taught by Mrs. Mary Beth Baumgardner and Mrs. Lee Engel, both of whom have dedicated their teaching careers to the students at St. Elizabeth Elementary.
