Math Relays at PSU on April 8

Updated:

NEWS RELEASE FROM PITTSBURG STATE UNIVERSITY

'Cool' kids come for Math Relays

Math has always been hard, but thanks to shows like “Big Bang Theory,” it may also be getting a little more cool. If so, that means the 900 or so high school students from Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri who attend Pittsburg State University’s 46th annual Math Relays on Tuesday, April 8, are some of the coolest kids in their schools.

Terry Ann Martin, a member of the PSU Math Department faculty, coordinates the event. She said students compete in a wide range of events designed to test their math knowledge. Categories include graphing, algebraic equations and inequalities, analytic geometry, trigonometry, number theory, probability and statistics, and computational math.

Tim Flood, chair of the Department of Mathematics, said his favorite part of the day is the opening ceremony in John Lance Arena.

“I love to see the variety of the kids and see their enthusiasm,” Flood said.

The top 10 competitors in each of the contest's categories have their names listed in Yates Hall and the top three in each receive medals. The top performers are invited back to campus for Math Honor Day later in the year.
