Suzanne Mathletes Win Gold
Congratulations to the Suzanne Middle School MATHCOUNTS team who brought home gold medals from the Los Angeles County Math Field Day held at Glendale High School on Saturday, April 30, 2016. Team members were eighth grade students: Darren Chen, William Lin, Tyler Xu and Clement Chan.
Over thirty school districts from across Los Angeles County sent teams to the event. The competition has a new format which focuses on common core mathematics curriculum and teamwork. Students work together in teams to solve problems and explain their understanding. Teams are graded on mathematical understanding and judged group interaction and collaboration.
Suzanne MATHCOUNTS team won gold in both the Problem Solving and Conceptual Understanding categories. They also took home a teamwork participation medal. “It was a very exciting and rewarding day for Suzanne Mathletes,” said Amy Erickson, Suzanne MATHCOUNTS coach.
