Trine hosting 35th Math Competition
Eighteen schools registered
Students from 18 Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana schools have registered for Trine University’s 35th annual High School Mathematics Competition on Wednesday, Jan. 28 in Hershey Hall from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
Students can compete as elementary or advanced mathematicians individually, and then as four- person teams made up of two elementary and two advanced students. Exams are written by Trine professors.
The winner in the advanced level individual competition will receive a $5,000 tuition scholarship to Trine. Each of the four members of the winning team will be awarded a $3,000 tuition scholarship to Trine. An individual student may receive more than one Trine merit-based scholarship, but the value of the combined scholarships is not to exceed the cost of tuition. All scholarships are renewable, subject to grade point average.
Trine will also present cash awards to the teachers of the winning teams. Awards of $1,000 for the first place team, $500 for the second place team, and $250 for the third place team will be used for math education in the teachers’ classrooms or departments.
The winners will be announced in an awards ceremony in Best Hall 229 at 1:15 p.m. The ceremony is open to the public.
Registrations will be accepted through Jan. 23. The competition will move to Wednesday, Feb. 4 if inclement weather makes postponement necessary.
