Winners of the Math Meet 2005

(April 13, 2005)

The thirty first annual Math Field Day was held at the University of Wisconsin-Superior on April 13, 2005. Ten teams from high schools in Wisconsin attended. The schools included Ashland, Bruce, Drummond, Frederic, Grantsburg, Hayward, Rice Lake, Superior, Unity, 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 Frederic, with a score of 53. The winner in the small school class was Grantsburg, with a score of 61. In the large school class, the runner-up was Ashland, scoring 53, and the winner was Hayward, scoring 59.

Grantsburg

The winner in the small school class was Grantsburg with score of 61.

Frederic

Runner-up in the small school class was Frederic, with a score of 53.

Hayward

The winner in the large school class was Hayward, scoring 59.

Ashland

The runner-up in the large school class was Ashland, with a score of 53.

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 and their scores are:

Drummond: Sarah Wood
Grantsburg: Whitney Johnson
Mitch Tromberg
