Math competition Saturday
Local students in grades 6-8 will participate Saturday in the 18th Southeast Alaska Regional MATHCOUNTS Competition at Juneau-Douglas High School. Ketchikan and Craig middle schools will have their competitions locally on the same date.
The initial portion of the competition, which begins at 9 a.m., is closed to the public. The final section, scheduled to begin around noon, is open.
The students are selected by schools following training that started at the beginning of the school year. Subjects include probability, statistics, linear algebra and polynomials. Winners will receive trophies and advance to state contests March 24 at the University of Alaska Southeast. The top four individuals and the coach of the top team at the state competition will earn all-expense-paid trips to the national finals in Washington, D.C.
Volunteers are being sought for the statewide competition to provide student housing and meals, and to serve as award presenters and banquet speakers. Those interested in helping or making a donation can contact Doug Murray at 780-6151.
