March Math Madness at Woodland MS

In the Fulton Co. math competition, the 6th grade math team came in 3rd in ciphering. The Woodland 7th grade math team was 3rd overall! Woodland then turned the former snow day into a math celebration with all 8th grade students competiting in Pi Day events including best t-shirt design and most digits memorized. But Friday the 13th is also Digital Learning Day so some classes were working on iPads to create math models. Teachers actually kicked off Digital Learning Day by learning how to create self-grading quizzes online and having mini-pecan pies. Math Milestones Bootcamp is Tuesday, March 17th for parents to get the best resources for helping children prepare for the Ga. Milestones.
