Middle Schoolers Make Math Count

Middle Schoolers Make Math Count

From the desk of Ann von Ofenheim, OES Middle School math educator:

"On February 24, OES's Middle School Math Club competed in a regional MATHCOUNTS competition at Mentor Graphics.

The competition consisted of three official rounds and one game round. Two of the rounds tested each individual's math skills with and without use of a calculator, and then a team round gave students the opportunity to collaborate with each other to solve more challenging problems.

OES did well overall; Chris J. '22 qualified to go on to the state competition on March 17! Here are the three teams that competed:

*Official Team: Chris J. '22, Shriya D. '22, Jacob N. '23, and Arun S. '23.
*Seventh grade team: Maxwell T. and Alex C. (both '23).
*Sixth grade: Calvin C., Alexandre B., Yuankai G., and Sash R. (all '24).

Congratulations to the Math Club!"
