Canyon Crest Academy places 3rd in national math contest

Canyon Crest Academy has some of the best high school mathematicians in the country, as demonstrated by its 3rd-place finish in the 2011 Fall Startup Event, a national mathematics contest administered by National Assessment & Testing (www.natassessment.com).

Coach Brian Shay prepared students for the first major competition of the academic year, in which students worked furiously for 30 minutes, racing to answer 100 problems in a variety of mathematical topics.  With so many questions and so little time, competitors must not only have strong mathematical skills, but also be able to quickly decide which problems to solve and which to skip.

After results from students across the nation were processed, several Canyon Crest Academy students received individual awards, helping their team to place 3rd in the nation.  In the 10th-grade division, Brandon Zeng and Paolo Gentili tied for 4th-place; Catherine Wu placed 13th; and Eric Chen was 14th.  Thomas Swayze plced 9th in the 11th-grade division; and Henry Maltby and Raymond Wu placed 2nd and 24th respectively in the 12th-grade division.  Canyon Crest Academy will be participating in all five of National Assessment & Testing’s contests this year, including the 2011 Team Scramble on Nov. 3 and the 2011 Ciphering Time Trials on Dec. 8.

National Assessment & Testing administers high-quality mathematics competitions that high schools can participate in through the mail.  Their contests cover a variety of formats, including individual and team tests, as well as a variety of difficulties, from 100 easy problems in 30 minutes to 15 complex problems in one week.

This wasn’t recent, fortunately, but it comprise […]
