Prince William County Middle Schoolers Participate in Math Quest | Education
High school students from every public school in Prince William County participated in Math Quest last fall at Lake Ridge Middle School.
The event challenged students to solve algebraic, geometric, statistical and probability questions. Math Quest also encompasses critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration, and citizenship.
“The Math Quest benefits students by providing opportunities for them to collaborate and communicate as a team from different schools,” said Kristin Rojas, school system professional development specialist for high school math.
Students from Gar-Field and Potomac High Schools supported the event by teaching high school students problem-solving strategies and serving as coaches to encourage students. Congratulations to the following Math Quest winners.
