Two outstanding math teams in Granite School District are proving they have what it takes to compete with their peers across the nation.
A team from Skyline High School recently placed 25th in a national mathematics contest administered by National Assessment & Testing. Coach Jason Meakin prepared students for the contest, in which teams of four participated in ten three-minute rounds and attempted to answer four questions.
After results from schools across the country were double-checked, the team of Everest Fang, Amy Wang, Dylan Webb, and Olivia Dennis had the highest score at Skyline, leading their school to place 25th overall among the top schools in the country.
Over at Wasatch Jr. High, young math enthusiasts managed a first place victory in their chapter of the Mathcounts Competition Series, which covers Granite, Salt Lake City, and Davis school districts.
They will now compete at the state Mathcounts series later this week.
