The Monthly Mathlete award is given to one career prep student, one college prep student, and one honors student every month. These students are nominated and chosen by the Math Department on the basis of their hard work and leadership in the math classroom. They will have their pictures posted in the Math Wing for the month and will each receive a coupon for a free MTO at Sheetz.
Andrew Glenn was chosen for this award due to the hard work and perseverance
he demonstrates in his math class. He works patiently and thoroughly and takes the time to ensure that his solutions to problems fit each scenario. He strives to
ensure that his understanding goes beyond the steps of problem solving and
extends to concepts and reasons behind those steps. He makes himself available to help his peers and is willing to learn from them, as well. His consistency has enabled him to earn the highest grade in Geometry for the third marking period, and will continue to serve him well as he journeys through high school and beyond. Keep up the hard work, Andrew!
Ashlyn Rohrer has been chosen as a result of his hard work and responsibility. He consistently has his homework completed, with his work shown and well organized, indicating a strong sense of mathematical reasoning. He earned a 92% during the third marking period and currently has a 96% in the fourth marking period, in part, because he scored a 95% on the Polynomials Unit test. He also has demonstrated personal responsibility by mastering 377/412 topics on ALEKs ahead of the target due date. But his teacher is most impressed by the way you behaves in the classroom. He is respectful towards the teacher, kind towards his peers, and willing to work with any student when asked. These are all evidence of his good character.
Isabella Peters has been chosen because her work ethic in acquiring the math skills of Algebra has been exemplary all semester. She takes every opportunity to fine tune her skills and completes her assignments to a high degree of accuracy. She always graciously works with others to help them in attaining the same level of understanding that she has achieved. As Softball season began, she had to take on completing more assignments outside of class because of early dismissals for sports, and she has excelled. Being busy has increased her focus to achieve in the classroom, as well as on the sporting field.
