News from MathCounts

  MathCounts students fueling up before the big competition!

On Saturday February 9th, students from MathCounts went to participate in the Chapter Competition where they competed against 13 other schools.  The competition consisted of individual and team rounds and ended with a very exciting countdown round.  During the countdown round 2 students face off against each other.  Students are given a question on the project and it is also read.  They buzz in when they know the answer.  If no one buzzes in after 30 sec. they move on to the next question.  Often students answer before the question is finished being read.  Here is an example of a Countdown Round question:
A circular pool is being built inside a rectangular region 12 ft by 18 ft. If the pool is to be as large as possible, and the edge of the pool must be at least 2 ft from each edge of the rectangle, what is the maximum possible value for the radius of the pool, in feet?
Congratulations to everyone who competed.  We will continue to have our meetings every Wed during WIN time and we always welcome new members.
