State Mathcounts Competition

Today we had our state mathcounts competition. It is so fun to see so many kids -- especially teenagers -- enjoy math so much. The questions that these students are asked to answer are difficult - difficult questions. It is so much fun being the coach of such great people.

The last round consists of the top 10 students from the morning. They have a one on one battle to see who can answer three questions first. They re-order the top ten based on how they compete at the "show-down". The winner of today's competition was in the 6th grade. It was amazing! I am so proud of these kids!!

Until next year -- mathcounts is officially OVER :)

It was so fun! I'm glad that you were able to be there. I can't believe that a 6th grader took State!
