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.
