Congratulations to Alysa Alderete, Dylan Burbank, Matt Chorlian, and Srilekha Nuli who represented Rundlett Middle School’s Mathcounts Team at last weekend’s regional tournament. Our team battled with seventeen other teams in a highly competitive series of events which required all players to solve measure, estimate, analyze, and apply a host of problem solving skills. Rundlett Middle School’s Mathcounts Team finished in fourth place at the regional match that was held on Saturday, February 2nd at Lurgio Middle School in Bedford. Shrelaka Nuli‘s excellent work at the individual level has earned her a position at the State Competition. Good luck Shrelaka! The Mathcounts Club is designed to increase enthusiasm for math and to engage students using a variety of math activities. It provides the extra incentive and the perfect atmosphere for students to push themselves to achieve more in mathematics. Consisting of fun and creative problems that promote critical‐thinking and problem‐solving skills, the Mathcounts competitions have written and oral rounds, as well as individual and team components. Though challenging and non‐routine, the competition problems focus on the 6th through 8th grade standards of the National Council of Teachers in Mathematics. The RMS Mathcounts Club meets after school, every Monday in Mr. Wilczewski’s room – room 310.
