NAPLES HIGH HOSTS REGIONAL
MU ALPHA THETA COMPETITION
January 16, 2013
It’s time to get ready for a little adding, a bit of multiplying, some long division, and a whole bunch of mathematical computations. It’s time for the Florida Regional Mu Alpha Theta Mathematics Competition, set for Saturday (January 19) beginning at 9:30 a.m. at Naples High School (NHS), located at 1100 Golden Eagle Circle. More than 1100 students hailing from some 40 schools across Collier, Lee, Dade, Hendry, and Broward counties will convene at NHS for this rigorous academic event – competing in the divisions of Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Precalculus, Calculus, and Statistics.
Mu Alpha Theta is an international honor society for students who excel in mathematics. All students will complete a one hour written test composed of 30 questions. The top four students from each school will compete in a team competition within each division. Additionally, NHS students developed an Interschool Test, containing fun, general knowledge questions, school history questions, and math concept questions. This fun test will require visiting schools to seek out NHS students to garner the necessary answers.
Individual and team rounds will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. The Awards Ceremony will then begin at 3:00 p.m. after the results are compiled. Trophies and/or ribbons will be awarded to the top 15 individuals and the top 5 teams in each division. The top 5 overall schools are given school trophies.
