SMDS Faculty Travels to Tyler Consolidated to Host WV Math Games Event | E-news

Erin Goodykoontz, Cody Hood and Vicki Sealey from the School of Mathematical and Data Sciences recently visited Tyler Consolidated Middle School to host the second WV Math Games event, supported by the Mathematical Association of America and the Neff Outreach Fund.

During their visit, they engaged the entire Year 8 class (over 80 students) in fun and stimulating math-focused games such as 24 and Qwirkle. These games promote essential math habits such as problem solving and perseverance.

The event culminated in an exciting 24 competition in which all students took part to see which team could find solutions creatively and quickly.

This event, aimed at engaging high school students in rural West Virginia counties, marked the continuation of an ongoing project that aims to bridge the gap between home and school and encourage a collaborative approach to learning math.

There are plans to expand WV Math Games to the entire state in the coming academic year.
