Math Counts

MathCounts Participants 2018

MathCounts is a group of 7th and 8th grade students that participated in a math competition at Upper Iowa on Thursday, January 18. The competition consists of four components.  The first component is an individual test with 30 problem solving questions.  The second component, my favorite, is 8 questions presented in pairs.  After student responses are collected for each pair of questions, the answers are shared.  The third component is a set of 10 questions that may be answered as a team of 4 students.  The final countdown round is the last component and only involves the top 10 students in the first two parts of the competition.  

Thank you to Mrs. Franzen for taking our students.
