Davidson Elementary takes first place in Mathapalooza

Analyzing math problems in a time crunch and working together doesn't unnerve a group of Davidson Elementary students.

The team of third grade mathletes took home first place in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools' Mathapalooza competition on Nov. 3.

In the competition, held at Irwin Academic Center, students worked together to solve math problems and build a structure using math.
