White Plains Elementary School’s SumDog team recently claimed first place in the Northwestern North Carolina SumDog Competition.
The team competed against 29 other schools in this area. White Plains’ SumDog team, made up of third, fourth, and fifth graders, had the most problems completed in the week-long competition as well as the highest accuracy. In addition to their certificates, the team won a free six-month classroom subscription to the premium games on SumDog.
SumDog is an online math website that periodically has math competitions where students are given 1,000 problems each. Students receive problems that are catered to their individual skill level. Some of our students were completing problems that were two or three grades above their grade level.
