Winter Sports and Activities: Math Counts

With the Fall season coming to an end, we say goodbye and congratulation to all of the great teams and activities that have taken place over this Autumn season. We welcome in all of the new winter sports and activities that have started this past week. 

This year’s Winter sports and activities for the middle school, include girls’ basketball, boys’ basketball, swimming, math counts, choir, and knowledge bowl. The secondary’s Winter sports and activities include robotics, wrestling, math counts, choir, JV and Varsity girls’ basketball, and JV and Varsity boys’ basketball. Practices schedules will remain the same as the Fall’s activities and sports, with middle school sports and secondary activities on Tuesdays and Thursdays and secondary sports and middle school activities will be on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

HS Math Counts
For those of you who don’t already know what math counts is all about, it is a CEESA competition where a team of students from each school compete to solve mathematical problems. “In math counts you solve problems that are not usually involved in math class. It’s basically mathematical thinking in special problems.” is how Diana L., a member of the secondary math counts team explained it. When asked about why she personally decided to join math counts, other than the fact that CEESA for math counts is in Macedonia, she said “I love math, and math counts is without pressure so you just go there and solve problems without wanting to get good grades.” 

Math counts is being led by Mrs. Chemeris at the secondary level, and by Mr. Alman and Mr. Plasil for the middle school team.
