Coral Academy of Science Mathcounts students competed at the American Math Challenge competition on October 16 and 17, 2012.
More than 1.5 million students and hundreds of schools competed for two days. The first day of competition entailed logging into the contest site to answer 1,500 grade-level math questions. The second day, students participated in 200 live math challenges, answering questions as quickly as possible.
Mrs. Idil (Coral Academy Mathcounts Coach) said:” The American Math Challenge was a great opportunity for our students to not only solving math questions but to show that they can succeed by using self-discipline and insistence.”
Coral Academy of Science Mathcounts students solved approximately 25,000 questions in 2 days.
