Middle School Math Teams Shine at Math Is Cool Regional Competition

Two EC middle school math teams competed at the Math Is Cool regional competition for the seventh- and eighth-grade φ division held at Auburn High School earlier this month.

Both teams received a perfect score of 10 out of 10 on the Relay Event and all eight students from both teams scored at least six out of eight on the Mental Math Contest, which was the minimum goal Math Coach Danny Lau established when they started preparing in September. Three students received a perfect score of eight points:

  • David Jacome
  • Kasper Kelly
  • Matthias Scaramastra

Three students received an individual score of at least 50 out of 98 (Mental Math plus Individual Contest):

  • Damilola Dada
  • Kasper Kelly
  • Philip Huang

We are extremely proud of our students as they have been hard at work developing their problem-solving skills as well as their advanced mathematical knowledge over this past year. Well done Crusaders!
