Grade School Hosts Math Carnival

Babylon Memorial Grade School students learned critical math skills while having fun playing sports and card games at the Family Math Carnival held on Feb. 6 in the school’s gymnasium.
The event, which was spearheaded by the Babylon Grade School Math Committee, fourth-grade teacher Kelly Arcoleo and Principal Randee Bonagura, included several brain-building activities to help students improve their math abilities in an enjoyable atmosphere with friends, family members 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 children also enjoyed 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."
