Middle School students who are part of the MathCounts Elective competed on February 1st at the Metrowest Chapter Competition hosted by Meadowbrook School. Mathcounts is a national program designed to build problem solving skills and positive attitudes about math, so students embrace challenges and expand their academic and career opportunities in the future. The CRS team, comprised of 10 students, had a strong showing at the competition, according to Mary Walsh, 7th and 8th Grade Math Teacher and Upper Grades Coordinator. “Our students did a great job; they are truly a talented bunch.”
In addition, the same 10 students recently participated in the AMC8 mathematics contest, administered by the Mathematical Association of America. For the second year in a row, 8th Grader Colin Levine placed in the top 5% nationally, earning an Honor Roll certificate. Top mathletes across the country participated in this annual event.
