Carmel Valley Middle School takes 1st place in national math contest

Carmel Valley Middle School won first place in the 2012 Fall Startup Event, a national mathematics contest administered by National Assessment & Testing (http://www.natassessment.com).  Coach David Vaughn 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 Carmel Valley Middle School students received individual awards, helping their team to place first in the nation:  Yan Tao placed 2nd, Varkey Alumootil was 8th, Ivy Huang placed 12th, Lauren Oh finished in 16th-place, David Wang placed 17th, Marie Shi was 22nd, and Jason Qiao, Patricia Ouyang, Caroline Zhang, and Daniel Sun tied for 24th place.

Carmel Valley Middle School will be participating in all five of National Assessment & Testing’s contests this year, including the 2012 Team Scramble on Nov. 8 and the 2012 Ciphering Time Trials on Dec. 13.
