Several dozen schoolkids were on the UNCG campus this month to test their math acumen.
On Thursday, May 1, 2014, the UNCG Department of Mathematics and Statistics hosted the Central Region State Mathematics Contest Finals. The State Mathematics Contest is a problem-solving competition through which students interested in mathematics can become familiar with more sophisticated and advanced mathematical concepts and ideas that are not covered in traditional school curricula. Every year, the culmination of the contest is a final test that determines statewide winners. The final test is administered simultaneously at three sites in the Eastern, Western, and Central regions of our state. Fifty-one students from 19 middle schools and high schools came to UNCG to compete in two divisions: Level I and Level 2. Fifteen students competed in Level 1 and 36 students competed in Level 2. All students received a Certificate of Participation and the top 10 competitors in each division received trophies.
