High Schoolers to Test Skills at Evergreen’s 5th Annual Math Meet

November 15, 2013

(Olympia, Wash.) Can doing math together actually be fun? Students from interested high schools can find out at the 5th Annual High School Math Meet on November 23 at The Evergreen State College.

"Our meet is a great opportunity to have fun doing math with your peers - and it looks great on college applications, too,” says Brian Walter, faculty member and event organizer. “It’s also an opportunity for local students to learn about the amazing math and science programs at Evergreen.”

The goal of this math meet is to provide an inclusive and encouraging space for Olympia-area students to test their mathematic skills. This free tournament will offer four events, including a collaborative team test and a three-person relay test. Two individual competitions will also take place; one with calculators and one without.

All participants will receive a certificate of participation. Those who score greater than 50 percent in any event will be invited to the Washington Regional Math Championship to be held at Evergreen in April 2014.

The tournament takes place on Saturday, November 23 from 9 am-4 pm. Schools are encouraged to register early, because space is limited. More information, including preregistration can be found at blogs.evergreen.edu/mathtourney/.
