Math Field Day is a county-wide competition for students in 5th-12th grades. Participating students are challenged in several math-related activities that are both computational and physical in nature. The activities include:
- Written examination
- Mental math problems
- Math relays and estimation problems
Students that win their division then move on to the regional competition in Fairmont. From there, winners can compete in the state competition at Marshall University.
Competing in Math Field Day gives students the opportunity to match wits and math abilities with other students in the county.
