During period 1 and 2 on Tuesday, May 15th, Mustangs from all grades participated in a team math contest in the library. The Halton Team Mathematics Contest consisted of around 6 questions, which students would work on together in groups of 3. Students could choose whether to work on the questions individually or have the whole group work on them together. Students were given points on how quickly they answered each question. For getting the question right on the first try, they would be awarded 100 points. After the first attempt, 25 points would be taken off per try, to a maximum of 3 tries. The students would be given 90 minutes to complete as many questions as they could.
The students would compete in either a senior or a junior category. The top 2 groups in each category are invited to advance to the next level and complete the math contest on May 22nd.
Below is a list of all the students who took the contest. Congratulations to all the students who participated!
