28 Students from North Country Road Middle School Participate in MathCON
MILLER PLACE, NEW YORK (APRIL 2021)—Twenty-eight of North Country Road Middle School’s young mathematicians calculated the means to success while challenging themselves to the 2021 MathCON competition, amid a global pandemic. Three students—Christopher Barton, grade 9; Stephen Ye, grade 7; and Jonathan Bang, grade 7—will now advance to the final round of the competition. Additionally, eighth graders Lucy Chang and Matthew Cirrito earned spots as alternate finalists and have an opportunity to compete depending on competition enrollment.
As part of the competition process, students were challenged to a 40-minute online exam comprised of several multiple-choice questions. The exam includes problems of varying degrees of difficulty, enabling all students to be challenged at the same level. The competition, spearheaded by Ms. Maureen Radday and Ms. Corinne D’Andrea, provided Miller Place’s students an opportunity to showcase their ingenuity and knowledge of mathematics.
MathCON, a national nonprofit mathematics organization, provides students across the nation with an educational opportunity to challenge themselves against other students in an effort to enhance their mathematics interest and earn scholarship opportunities.
