One North Shore Elementary class earned top marks in the most recent county-wide Sumdog Math Contest.  Mrs. Jennifer Hood's 4th grade class got 2nd place in the whole county, and SIX of her students landed in the top 10 for individual student scores!

"My class was very determined to win, and they worked so hard to get up to the top!" commented Mrs. Hood, who is new to the district this year.

The Sumdog Math Contests consist of free online math games.  The scores are based on the students' accuracy, and the questions adapt to each student's skill level so that everyone has a chance of winning. 

The most recent contest took place from Oct. 14-Oct. 20.  This is the first Sumdog contest for this school year; there are four or five total contest throughout the year.   Twenty-nine Van Buren County School participated in this most recent contest, and students solved a total of 152,126 math problems!  Mrs. Hood's class also participated in the national Sumdog Math Contest from Sept. 30-Oct. 6 and got 3rd place out of 1,149 classes!

"They love the interaction in the games with playing against other students," said Mrs. Hood.  "Their favorite part is playing against each other though."
