Sixth Grade Students at Wegner School Place 1st in State Wide Math Competition

Elementary Dist 33

     The ICTM (Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics) sponsors a math competition throughout the school year which consists of three contests in which students compete as individuals and as teams. The students are given “process/story” problems to solve, which is excellent preparation for ISAT testing. The students in District 33's Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) math cluster competed in all three contests this year. At the completion of the three contests, the 6th grade team at Wegner School came in first place out of 57 teams throughout Illinois.

The final results for the other District 33 elementary schools entered in the competition are as follows:

  • 4th Grade (out of 61 teams)

    • 5th Place Wegner

    • 8th Place Gary/Currier

    • 10th Place Indian Knoll

  • 5th Grade (out of 56 teams)

    • 5th Place Wegner

    • 8th Place Gary

    • 13th Place Indian Knoll (First Honors Ranking)

  • 6th Grade (out of 57 teams)

    • 1st Place Wegner

    • 14th Place Indian Knoll (First Honors Ranking)

The students competed against other public and private elementary schools at their grade level, as well as schools for the gifted throughout Illinois.
