In honor of March Madness, West End Elementary School students and staff recently participated in their own math-filled basketball tournament, Math Madness. The object of the competition was to give students the opportunity to work together to solve a number of math problems while engaging in basketball.

Each math problem increased in difficulty level based on color. Once the group successfully completed their math problem, a student would stand on their corresponding color dot and try to score a basket. If they missed, the next student in their group would attempt to make the shot. With each successful basket, the group would receive a colored stick which was worth a certain amount of points. Staff members also joined in the fun. A great time was had by all!
