Winners of the Math Meet 2007

(April 18, 2007)

The thirty second annual Math Field Day was held at the University of Wisconsin-Superior on April 18, 2007. Eight teams from high schools in Wisconsin and Minnesota attended. The schools included Ashland, Cloquet, Drummond, Grantsburg, Hayward, Rice Lake, Superior, and Webster.

The competition began with a Team Event, in which the eight-member teams collaborate in solving ten problems within 20 minutes. Schools with 500 or more students compete in the large-school class; the other schools form the small-school class. Runner-up in the small school class was Grantsburg, with a score of 40. The winner in the small school class was Drummond, with a score of 51. In the large school class, the runner-ups were Rice Lake, scoring 55, and Superior, scoring 47, and the winner was Hayward, scoring 56. Due to a grading error the initial score for the Rice Lake team was incorrect. Therefore, we have two runner-ups in this school class now.

Drummond High School Math Meet Team

The winner of the small school class was Drummond with a score of 51.

Grantsburg High School Math Meet Team

Runner-up in the small school class was Grantsburg, with a score of 30.

Hayward High School Math Meet Team

The winner in the large school class was Hayward, scoring 56.

Rice Lake High School Math Meet Team

The runner-ups in the large school class were Rice Lake, with a score of 55

Superior High School Math Meet Team

... and Superior, with a score of 47.

The individual events consist of 15 problems to solve within a time limit of 15 minutes. The top finishers in each event received a Math Meet T- shirt; the winners of each event will also receive a $100 U.S. Savings Bond. (No student may receive more than one bond or more than one T- shirt.) The top finishers in each event are:

Quick Response/Calculator Event:

The quick-response verbal event just prior to lunch then provided a nice change of pace from the sit-down events. Dr. Chad Scott from the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science coordinated a series of toss-up and bonus questions. The students who won candy bars for correct answers were:

Ashland: Janette Hammond
Cloquet: A.J. Rodd
Edward Jacobson
Drummond: Tyler Hackman
John Replogle
Hayward: Ashley Gidley
Bryan Dixon
Rice Lake: Dan Healy
