Over the first weekend in February, twelve of our Saxe Middle School students competed at the Southwest Chapter MathCounts Competition at Fairfield University, with four students advancing to the state competition in March.
Saxe Middle School students Kane Duggar, Aksh Juneja, Jason Lin, and George Wang placed in the top 10% of student competitors and will be moving forward to the state-level MathCounts competition held in a few weeks.
Also representing Saxe Middle School this year were students Anthony Osadchy, Emily Meng, David Marz, Allison Stiles, Aarna Gupta, Stewart Goodwin, Anthony Westhead, and Aidan Salas as they competed with over 150 students from across the country.
The MathCounts Competition is a nationwide mathematics competition that allows middle school students to compete against their peers for school, chapter, state, and national recognition.
Students compete in a series of levels to test their aptitude, accuracy, mathematical reasoning, and problem-solving abilities. Each level is comprised of 4 rounds - Sprint, Target, Team, and Countdown Round, which take about 3 hours to complete.
Congratulations to all of our student competitors! We are beyond proud of all these students' commitment and hard work and look forward to heading to states!
