Summary
We entered The National Math Trail representing Lowell, Massachusetts for the first time in 2004. This international project encourages students to create, solve and share original word problems about their home communities. Our trail included highlights of Lowell's history, diverse culture, sports / recreational ties, and famous people. Links are updated regularly.
