October math contest

Nicky, Daeho, and Dick were top scorers

The Wisconsin Math League Math Contest consists of 6 High School Contests each year, with 6 questions per contest. Students compete with other students across the state. Students compete for the highest scores, while schools compete for the highest team score: the total of the top 5 scores in each school. Problems  are drawn from a wide range of high school topics: geometry, algebra, trigonometry, logarithms, series, sequences, exponents, roots, integers, real numbers, combinations, probability, coordinate geometry, and more.

At Conserve School the first of the six contests was held on October 20, 2009. 19 students participated in the contest. The top scoring students were Daeho, Nicky, and Dick. Each of these students correctly solved five of the six questions. Also scoring well were Eddy, Colin, and Andy, who correctly solved four of the six questions. The team score for this contest was 23, which is a good score.

While we will not know how we ranked in the state for several days, we do know that the team score on the first contest this year is the same as the team score for the first contest last year, and last year this placed us in the upper third of competing schools, most of which are significantly larger than Conserve School.
