A big smile and hello to the 225 recipients of our weekly email blast!
Like usual, there are a few new members that are added to our distribution list each week, and we welcome you! There are also a few extra folks on our email just this week. They are (in alphabetical order) Mr. Goergen, Ms. Juckett, Ms. Patten, and Ms. Schroeder. I want to give the four of them a big public shout out for all they do to help out our group! Without them we would have no places to meet, no busses to get us anywhere, no advertisements for our group, no money for our events… basically we would all be walking around Stevenson High School with a big math shaped hole in our hearts without their support. So just wanted to give you some love this week in our blast. =)
1. NSML https://nsml.org/statistics/ranked/cumulative/2/
Who dat? Take a look at the standings to see that the SHS MATH TEAM stands on top of the NSML mountain! We are only two competitions in with three to go – so there is still work to be done. But take heart in knowing your efforts are not in vain! It’s exciting that we are all learning a few topics each week, practicing questions, and also seeing positive results. Our next event is on December 9 at Deerfield high school. Check out your google classroom for more details about your topics
2. Math Madness https://www.aretelabs.com/math_madness/66/rankings
Woot! Sort it however you want: 5, 10, 15, or 20 students at a time, and the SHS MATH TEAM stands on top of the 148 schools involved in the competition across the nation. The single elimination bracket style competition among the top 64 schools starts this week Tuesday during our regularly schedule meeting, at 4 PM. We are up against Pullman High School near Washington State University. Be sure to have a charged iPad and your login credentials ready.
The AMC A competition is this week, Wednesday after school! Registered students, be on the lookout for an email from Mr. Anderson with room details. Resources are in the google classroom for your preparation. Remember, this is the first leg of the journey. We hope that many of you will qualify for the AIME then on to the USAMO and (gasp) then on to MOP! (Yeah, lots of acronyms to potentially google in this third announcement
