Mathletics is a math competition for the top twelve 4th and 5th graders. Students work in teams of three to solve challenging problems and use critical thinking skills. This is the first year it was held at EDW instead of being an elementary district event. This event was planned and facilitated by Mrs. Ammerman and Miss Lavely.
