Madison Middle School students place in poster contest

Each year, the Connecticut Chapter of the American Statistical Association (ASA) sponsors a Poster Competition for students in Grades K through 12. The main purpose is to promote math literacy by encouraging students to: select a topic to investigate, gather and examine data from different points of views, and summarize these data and present their results graphically.

Posters are judged in four grade categories: K-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12.  Two teams of Madison Middle School students were awarded 2nd and 3rd place in the 4-6 grade category, competing against 54 other teams from across the state.

Selected posters from the CT competition will be forwarded to compete in the 2015 American Statistical Association National Poster Competition.
