First- through fifth-grade students at Bosti Elementary School recently took part in the fun and informative Sumdog Math contest. The mathematics-based games allow students to compete against other schools throughout eastern Suffolk County while sitting in their respective classes. 

Sumdog is aligned with the NYS Common Core and Next Generation Learning Standards, as the games keep students motivated and eager to learn. They are asked to solve simple mathematical equations, which would in turn further their progress and enhance their overall class scores. 

As the students successfully answer questions, their ranking on the live leader board would increase which gets them closer to the ultimate goal — reaching the number one spot. Liz Whitson’s fourth-graders came in fourth place due to their combined mathematical efforts and quick-thinking skills.
