Get Your Pencils Ready!!!

Just like the previous two years, the Caribou Math Contest will be holding contests throughout the year, as students compete for the Caribou Cup. Each school on Six Nations has competed in the Caribou Math Contest to some extent, with several teachers (Mr. Hickey, Mrs. Hill, Ms. Ireland, to name a few) giving their students an opportunity to improve on their performance by making the contest a regular math activity in their classroom. These teachers noted an improvement in the competing students' ability to problem solve, notably gains in their perseverance and ability to choose and carry out strategies to solve math problems. I look forward to their participation and support again this year, and hope to see several NEW classrooms sign up.
