1 Point to Qualify

8:27 pm From the Teacher, Grade 4, Homeschoolers No More, Mathematics

He lost the semi-finals round by 1 point.

Last Monday was my son’s first time to join a math quiz bee elimination round, he got in third place for the top ten highest scores.

Then today, he got the highest score for the five students who will vie for the final two slots.

Among the five, he scored the third highest, missing a point to tie with the second placer. Oh well,  I guess it’s not meant to be that he compete in the Math Quiz Bee.

Of course I’m disappointed but my hubby, who is ever so objective, pointed out that he probably wasn’t concentrated on the quiz details because he was torn between going to a BSP 4 day camp starting tomorrow (which he isn’t sure he is going to attend just in case he gets to compete in the Math quiz bee) and attending a Saturday rehearsal for the Drama Club’s yearly big production.

So I guess, being a former homeschooler, he didn’t do bad. Though he could have done better.

Love, Tiger Mom, XOXO
