It was an event everyone was looking forward to and the gym was packed with Club members, staff, family, and volunteers all in support of the event.
Math Blazers is an annual event at BGCD allowing 3rd– 12th-grade students to display their math skills in a competition that covers specific skills tied directly to Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) objectives at each grade level. Contestants of the competition were judged on correct answers and the speed at which answers were given.
All of our Math Blazers showed their spirit with matching T-shirts, creative banners, and overall spirit to inspire their teammates to do well in these competitions. The really is a two-part event where the Blazers initially complete a set of math problems on worksheets. They then move into the relay portion of the competition. completed a series of physical challenges, such as push-ups, jumping jacks, and jumping rope!
