Babylon Memorial Grade School students learned critical math skills while having fun playing sports and card games at the Family Math Carnival held in the school’s gymnasium.
The Babylon Grade School Math Committee teamed with Principal Randee Bonagura to organize the event, which included numerous intriguing activities to help students improve their math abilities in an enjoyable atmosphere with friends and classmates.  
Among the many games played was "Breakthrough," a card game that utilizes dice to help students develop strategy based on probability theory. The youngsters also played many sports-based games, such as counting the number of basketball dribbles they could tally in a 60-second span. Additionally, there was a "Guessing Jar," a "Multiplication Baseball" activity and a "Whirl-Away Board."
