Burdick students excel at math competition

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA.E. Burdick School seventh graders took second place in the Thomas J. Glyzewski Math Meet at St. Thomas More High School in April. Seventh and eighth graders from 15 public and private schools participated.

In addition to the second-place team (pictured here), four seventh graders also placed in the top 10 in the individual competition. Congratulations to all for representing Burdick and Milwaukee Public Schools!

The Milwaukee Public Schools Comprehensive Math/Science Plan, first implemented in 2011-12, is aligned to the rigorous Common Core State Standards.

The Common Core State Standards eliminate the gap between what students have learned and mastered at high school graduation and what they must know to begin technical college/university and careers.
