Horace Mann students advance to state math contest
Four students attending Northwest Missouri State University's Horace Mann Laboratory School are advancing to the state math contest after placing among the top participants during a regional math contest March 10 at Horace Mann.
The Missouri Council of Teachers of Mathematics sponsored the 27th Annual Missouri Elementary Student Mathematics Contest. The competition, conducted at 21 regional sites across Missouri, had more than 2,500 student participants in grades four through six.
The students were tested in two categories, concepts and problem solving. Winners placing first, second and third in each of the two events are eligible to compete in the state math contest May 5 at Missouri State University in Springfield.
Horace Mann students who will compete in the state contest are sixth graders Sabrina Olson, Delanie Vinzant and Irene Hung, and fourth grader Ethan Adwell.
Other Horace Mann students who competed in the regional contest were sixth graders Jalen Sundell, Deanna Clayton and Gretchen Euler; fifth graders Ebenizer Orshiso, Ethan Hung, Will Mattock, Kate Yocum, Sarah Richardson and Lillian Rohs; and fourth graders Trent Shell, Madeline Wagner and Jaden Hayes.
The students were sponsored by Horace Mann teachers Linda Heeler and Julie Sealine. Monica Landess is director of the Horace Mann Laboratory School.
The Horace Mann Laboratory School, located on the Northwest campus, is an innovative program that provides clinical experience for pre-service teachers and a diverse and interactive learning environment for children. Housed in Brown Hall, the Horace Mann Laboratory School serves about 130 students in kindergarten through sixth grade. Early childhood classes for children age 3 through pre-kindergarten are offered in the Phyllis and Richard Leet Center for Children and Families in Brown Hall.
