Congratulations to our MATHCOUNTS team of four (Devin Muench, Srikar Chittemsetty, Sid Milkuri, and Manish Chander) and our individual competitors (Pearlyn Britto, Ivan Wong, Thilak Balaji, and Diya Nair) for the regional competition this Saturday!
The date of the NWA Chapter competition is Saturday, February 1st at the UA Fayetteville Bell Engineering Center. Check in will start at 8:15, students will be expected to be in their seats at 8:50. The competition will last until approximately 2p.m. with pizza and water being served for lunch to all coaches and mathletes. The State competition will be at UALR at the EIT building on March 7th and will start approximately 1p.m. and be over approximately 6p.m. so everyone can get back to NWA approximately 10p.m. As of right now, the top 60% of the individually placing students from the Sprint and Target rounds and the top 6 teams of four will get invitations to the state competition; however, if registration continues to increase, that could drop to the top 50% or even the top 40% to make sure we don’t have too many students at the state competition. Everyone will know the percent to be taken by the day of the competition.
MATHCOUNTS club will meet everyday this week (excluding Monday) in Mrs. Esparza’s room to prepare for competition. If you made the team and are unable to compete, please let me know as soon as possible so that we can assign the next person in line.
