Morton qualifies for national math contest

RANGELY — A Rangely High School Math Club student has qualified for the fourth year in a row for a Colorado team that will represent the state at the 34th national mathematics competition at Las Vegas on May 29-30.
The annual American Regions Math League (ARML) competition brings together the nation’s finest math students. Two Colorado teams will travel to the western regional site at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to compete in both the Division A and Division B competition.
Selected for the 15-member Division A team is Michael Morton, a 12th-grade student from Rangely.
The Colorado math program is hosted by the University of Colorado Boulder Math Circle, which provides a monthly forum for high school and exceptional middle school students to gather for mathematical discussions and exercises. The program also serves as a “training ground” to prepare Colorado teams for the national competition.
The Colorado Math Circle program is supported by the CU-Boulder Outreach Committee and the Department of Applied Mathematics.
