The STAAR Wars math competition was held prior to the actual tests earlier this week. It was a contest that was to prepare students for the Algebra 1 STAAR test, and it was a competition composed of 12 teams.
Each student had to qualify to be able to make a team, and each of the teams were represented by the different Algebra 1 teachers from across the school. The winners were Karla Vives, Vanessa Torres, Wei Lin Tan and Adeel Romaisa, who are Mr. Urrutia’s students.
Teams were to answer questions on their laptops and discuss them as a group, and there were six rounds that lasted 10 minutes each.
Students were then given a short break and were treated with drinks and snacks. The first, second, and third place winners were awarded with medals, trophies, and a basket full of goodies to congratulate them on their great work.
“It was very special to be a part of this competition,” said Carla Vives, a member of Mr. Urrutia’s winning team.
“Congratulations to the Algebra 1 teachers and their scholars,” said Mr. Ndiaye. “The event was a success, and we need to thank all of our Algebra 1 teachers who worked hard and contributed financially to prepare their scholars for the event, as well as the non EOC teachers who came during their planning period.”
Special thanks went out to Ms. David, Zapata and some office workers for decorating the library at the last minute, and to Band director Mr. Brown along with his team, for the show they put on.
1st place: Team Urrutia
2nd place: Team Caldera
3rd place: Team Zapata/Oyelami
