URE Closing

1The Math Sprint competition is encouraged and supported by Dr. Linda Hayden, Principal Investigator of the Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Education and Research (CERSER) on the campus of Elizabeth City State University and Chair of the Eastern Area Links STEM committee.

The objective of the math sprint is to create a fun, interactive method for students to be tested on their knowledge of mathematics as well as what material needs to be reviewed! The math sprint competition also aids in developing team participation, communication skills, and critical thinking when students are working with others in a group or team setting. 

The documents linked below will assist sponsors and teachers in implementing their own sprint competition.

All teams are given one hour to complete and answer the same set of 20 questions.Each team has a “team captain” or “runner” which are responsible for running up to the teachers’ table submitting their question and answers, and running back to their team with the next question.  The teams are scored on all the questions that are answered correctly; no points are given for incorrect answers. Each student on each winning team receives a trophy and all students receive a certificate for participating.

Thanks to the Eastern Area STEM Committee, and The Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Education and Research (CERSER) for supporting this event.
