Staying after school to do math may not seem like fun, but Pearre Creek Elementary made sure its students had a blast at the annual Math Night September 25.
With the help of Independence High Mu Alpha Theta students, the teachers at Pearre Creek Elementary set up stations designed to test their student’s mathematical skills.
Students participated in different, math-centric activities like bingo, bowling and a cake walk. Each activity earned them faux money to put toward different prizes or, a student favorite, a chance to throw a pie in the face of their math teacher.
“It’s the fastest two hours in math,” said PCES math coach Karen Plaisance. “Watching the students play math games, run back and forth to the prize table and spend their math dollars on a small opportunity to get to ‘Pi’ the math teachers is one of my favorite parts. All the work is worth it to see them get so excited about math.”
