On Saturday February 25th, G.I.S. students competed in the Northern Ohio 2012 Math Tournament. These teams (listed below) worked hard for 5 weeks in practice and went head to head with several other schools in the area. They were coached by Mrs. Kelly, Mrs. Singelyn and Mr. Kuhlman. On competition day, they worked in teams doing problem-solving and team construction. They were also graded on their mental math abilities.
Each grade had a team at the top earning trophies, two teams earned blue ribbons, and one team received red ribbons. Thank you to our students for representing G.I.S. so well.
