Throughout the spring of 2004, Dr. Linda Hayden, Principal
Investigator for the NRTS program, Mrs. Keisha Wilkins, and
Mr. Ervin Howard traveled to area schools sponsoring Math
Sprint Competitions for elementary students. The students
completed problems under a time constraint, were given points
for correct answers, and were penalized for wrong answers.
The winners received trophies for their efforts and certificates
were presented to others in the competitions. In some schools,
Dr. Hayden was joined by guests such as Dr. Eleanor Green
Dawley-Jones of Norfolk State University, retired, who helped
to supervise the Math Sprint Competitions.
