ELKHART — Bristol Elementary School won the Regional M.A.T.H. Bowl Feb. 28, besting five other Elkhart teams. A Pinewood team was second. The two teams had the same overall score, but the Bristol team won on a tiebreaker.

The Elkhart teams were not only competing against each other, but also against approximately 450 teams statewide at 46 regional sites. The Elkhart teams competed at Pinewood Elementary School.

Individual school teams are placed into different categories determined by the size of their school. Pinewood’s fourth and fifth-grade team actually placed in the Top 10 of its division. The team will receive a plaque for the school from the Indiana Association of School Principals, which sponsors the annual contest.

The M.A.T.H. Bowl competition consists of four rounds with each round consisting of seven multiple-choice questions which are read to the students and projected on the screen simultaneously. After consulting with the other team members at the table, the team captain answers each question by circling the chosen response on the answer sheet.

This was Elkhart’s first time to host a regional M.A.T.H. Bowl contest.
