The final Munce’s Math Night was held April 29 in the Huron Parks and Recreation Department building, located right next to Splash Central.

The students were able to have a bird’s eye view of the new waterpark as they were doing their math activities.

Huron Middle School students in Vanya Munce’s math class worked on mathematical problems dealing with information about the new waterpark. Park Manager Laura McGirr visited with the students, shared information about the park and answered student questions. She was able to give great math-related information about pool volume, water temperature, etc. for the pools.

The 85-plus students at math night also solved math brain-teaser puzzles and performed physical activities to complete their assigned projects for the night. After a great meal from Subway, almost 60 door prizes were handed out.

One of the highlights of the night were the 10 youth day passes that were given away as door prizes. Ten lucky students will get to go to the waterpark one day free.

As always, these nights would not be successful without the students, the great help from parents and the support of the school and community.

Munce expresses her thanks to the parents and high school help offered this year at math nights. She also is grateful to United Way for funding math nights for this school. Of course, this is all useless without the fabulous student turnout. Munce said she enjoys seeing the students at these events and has two goals: To increase student confidence and enjoyment of math. MATH ROCKS!
