Franklin Student Headed to National Math Hoops Competition
Franklin Elementary School couldn’t be more proud! Fernando Rodriquez has been chosen by Math Hoops – a National Basketball association – to represent Franklin Elementary, Utah, the Jazz, and Math Hoops in a math competition. Fernando will travel to San Francisco on June 2nd to compete with other students. His teacher, Sarah Easton had her students practiced math with Math Hoops all year. The students would practice their math skills using strategies that helped them score points.
Fernando and his classmates competed earlier this year at the Zion basketball practice arena and then again at the Vivint Smart Home Arena. Fernando submitted a short video to Math Hoops telling them that he would be a great choice for them to compete in San Francisco. Many students across the United States submitted similar videos and Fernando was chosen to compete.
Franklin wishes Fernando great success and a wonderful experience in San Francisco.
