Clatsop Community College’s Annual Mental Math Contest Tests Students' Skills

Clatsop Community College’s annual Mental Math Contest was held Thursday, May 15, 2014. 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 90 third through eighth grade students from Astoria Middle School, Broadway Middle School, Gearhart Elementary, Hilda Lahti Elementary, Ilwaco Middle School, Long Beach Elementary, Seaside Heights Elementary, and Warrenton Grade School participated.
