NMU hosting high school math competition

Local News
The best competition doesn’t always take place on the field or in the gym . . . sometimes it takes place in the classroom.
 
This weekend 44 teams from across the Upper Peninsula will compete in the seventh annual ‘U.P. High School Math Challenge.’  Students work individually and in teams answering questions that draw from topics found in pre-calculus mathematics. 
 
Daniel Rowe, an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at NMU, says, “It’s not meant to be just a boring math test. They compete in teams and students from a wide range of mathematical capabilities are going to come. A big part of this is to show high school students in the Upper Peninsula that there’s a lot of interesting intellectual things going on at Northern Michigan University and that they can come and experience the campus and experience thinking hard about mathematics with their friends. So, it’s a very exciting event.”
 
The event will be held this Saturday at Jamrich Hall on NMU’s campus.
