COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Some local kids got the chance to show off their math skills Saturday.

Columbus Regional Mathematics Collaborative hosted a competition for middle school students. They worked together to solve math problems and present their solutions to master teachers.

Organizers say competitions like this one help kids develop essential skills for later in life.

“Putting them in a situation like this to be able to work under pressure and to persevere through solving problems is going to be a great life skill for them," Denise Peppers said, Director of the Columbus Regional Math Collaborative.

There were representatives from 16 area schools at today's competition.
