Mother of Providence Regional Catholic School in Wallingford placed in the top 100 schools in the country in the First in Math online program for the second year in a row. The school was ranked second out of all same-sized schools in the United States.
In addition, the eighth grade team ranked 39th in the U.S. and 11th out of all the eighth grade teams competing, and the seventh grade team ranked 36th in the U.S. and seventh out of all the same-grade teams playing. The sixth grade team was ranked 35th overall and ninth out of all the same-grade teams.
In 1988 inventor Robert Sun developed a way to teach children the relationship between numbers by using his 24 Game, a unique mathematics teaching tool that engages students from diverse economic and social backgrounds.
His company, Suntex International Inc., helps students develop math skills by promoting permanent retention, not just short-term memorization of facts.
As a way to achieve that objective, the First in Math Online Mathematics Program was created. Its content utilizes the sophistication of computer games kids are used to playing and makes math appealing and accessible.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
