BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Hundreds of Kern County students got to put their math skills to test Saturday at Mathematics Field Day.
It was held at Liberty High School and involved 25 schools and 700 students.
Students took tests in several classrooms, the auditorium, cafeteria, gym and library. Students also participated in team relays.
It was a chance for students to practice math and learn how math is a big part of the real world.
"Math is more than just computing. It's problem solving more than anything else in which we are able to make sense out of the reality in which we find ourselves and also to make our lives better," said Eldred Marshall, Math and Science Coordinator for the Kern County Superintendent of School's Office.
Math Field Day is coordinated by the Kern County Superintendent of Schools and other sponsors.
