Math Team Takes Charge

Throughout the fall, the math team has competed in various competitions across the state. The team is made up of senior Alex Nacin and Junior Janie Pond. Each girl has placed at many tournaments and has qualified for Nationals. Pond was 1st place overall in the state of Kansas and each competitor will compete in the state championship in April. Competitions include two individual events and two team events.

  Coach Price said, “While being a strong math student in your class is very helpful, most of the problems you will see on these tests really don’t look much like what you would see in your classes.  The questions require a lot of outside-the-box thinking and creative problem-solving.  A lot of the common strategies, formulas, shortcuts, and tricks for these contests are what we cover at practices.”
