Key's Math Team Takes Second in Overall County Competition
- Upper School
We are excited to share that Key’s Upper School Math Team had a terrific turn out at the final Anne Arundel County math team competition and ended the year in second place! For everyone’s viewing pleasure, the coveted silver cup is in the trophy case in Katharine Hall along with other Math Team season awards.
As icing on the cake, Alice Chang ‘23 won “Most Improved Individual” for the year. She improved her average score by 2.5 points, which is remarkable considering an individual can only earn six points per competition. In addition, Alice was the first Key student to be invited by the Mathematical Association of America to take the American Invitational Mathematics Exam last February.
It has certainly been an exciting year for our Upper School Mathletes! Over twenty-five Key students took part in a county competition or the American Mathematics Competition that Key has been hosting for the past five years.
The year was summed up best by Math Coach Jen Bowman, who said, “I am proud of the creativity, dedication and enthusiasm our students displayed this year. How exciting to look forward to our next season!” Congratulations to Key’s Upper School Math Team!
