Math Competition 2012
photo of Willow Creek's Math Competition Team

During the past month, Willow Creek has had nine students involved in preparing for a district math contest. On Saturday, Dec. 1st, that team participated in Cherry Creek's Rich Morrow Math Challenge. It was our first year participating in the district competition, and we did exceptionally well!! Mr. Thomas, Gina Wu, and Mr. Shaikh served as coaches for the team.

The Math Challenge offers a fun day for young mathematicians to compete individually and as a team, to meet students from other schools, to watch middle-school students participate in a mock MathCounts competition, and to be recognized for their achievements.

The Willow Creek Team was comprised of strong math students selected using a variety of criteria, including test scores and classroom performance. There were three each from 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade:

3rd grade: Ethan W., Cade M., and Abbas S.

4th grade: Bryn N., Justin S., and Rahul T.

5th grade: Max F., Viyan G., and Riley M.

Based on about three hours of competition with 22 other district schools, various awards were earned by our school! The 3rd and 4th graders won team awards in our division, Viyan G. won an individual award for a high individual score, and Rahul T. won the TOP Math student of the ENTIRE Competition!
