RANGELY I A team of four math students from Rangely High School finished second in competition held by the Department of Mathematics and Physics at Colorado State University-Pueblo on Nov. 21, and one student earned honorable mention status.
CSU-P has announced the results from the 36th Annual Math Day Swanson and Math Bowl competitions held on campus. More than 130 students from 12 high schools around Colorado participated in Math Day activities, including Rangely, Rampart, Coronado, Doherty, Pine Creek, Canon City, Pueblo East, Pueblo Central, La Junta, Swink, Kim and Crowley County.
In addition to participating in the competitions, the students were able to visit biology, chemistry, engineering, physics, and physiology laboratories and demonstrations on the campus.
The Math Bowl Competition requires two three-person teams going head-to-head in a 15-minute race for points. Each team alternately is given a mathematical question and has 25 seconds to respond. The team with the most points then goes to the semi-final round to determine the winner. Winning teams proceeded through the bracket to the final round.
The 2013 Math Bowl winner was Rampart High School. Rangely was second with Andrew Morton, Chelsea Ficken and Tessa Slagle.
Morton received honorable mention, which went to the top competitors behind the top six individuals in the state.
