Girls' Adventures in Math
Last Saturday 12 of our 6th and 7th grade girls woke up early and attended the GAIM (Girls' Adventures In Math) competition in San Mateo! GAIM is a wonderful event for our students and their website details the program:"Girls' Adventures in Math is a team-based math competition for girls in grades 3-8. Our competition presents some of the most challenging and innovative math problems to students in this age group, contextualized in a comic book containing the stories of pioneering women from history. The competition occurs in two rounds: a sixty-minute Round 1, and a twenty-minute Round 2". Though none of our PHS teams were recognized with an award this year, they had a great experience solving tricky problems and puzzles in teams, learning how to play new strategy games, and many are already asking when is next year's competition! Our middle school math teacher is glad to have so many students interested in problem-solving. Go Dragons!
