Clatsop Community College’s Annual Mental Math Contest Tests Student’s Skill

Clatsop Community College’s annual Mental Math Contest was held Thursday, May 9th, 2013. During the Contest, students are asked math questions and have 30 seconds to work out each problem in their heads and write their answers on a piece of paper.

This year, approximately 120 third through eighth grade students from Astoria Middle School, Broadway Middle School, Cannon Beach Elementary, Gearhart Elementary, Hilda Lahti Elementary, Ilwaco Middle School, Jewell School, Long Beach Elementary, Ocean Park Elementary, Seaside Heights Elementary, and Warrenton Grade School participated.
