County students to compete in state MathCounts competition
A team from Milton M. Somers Middle School will compete next month in the state MathCounts competition after winning second place at the Southern Maryland competition held Feb. 2 at Theodore G. Davis Middle School in Waldorf. The top five teams advance to the state level. The state MathCounts competition is scheduled for March 16 at Johns Hopkins University, and middle school teams from Calvert, Charles and St. Mary's counties competed in the regional competition. Also advancing to the state level is the team from Davis, which earned fourth place. Members of the Somers team are eighth graders Justin Cortez and Sarah Chen, seventh grader Ethan Walker and sixth grader Michael Gill. Students on the Davis team include eighth graders Esha Satam, Carla Arquero, James Wash and Bernard Pettus. Additionally, three other CCPS students will compete at the state level for earning a place in the top 25 individual rankings at the regional competition. They are: Logan Cotner, eighth grade, Mattawoman Middle School; Amy Asiala, eighth grade, General Smallwood Middle School; and Daryl Raguidin, seventh grade, Benjamin Stoddert Middle School. The competition consists of four rounds in which students compete and earn points both as team members and individuals. In the sprint round, students individually complete a 30-question test. In the target round, students have four sets of math problems and are given six minutes to complete each set of two questions. During the team round, students receive 20 minutes to complete 10 questions as a team. The final round is a Jeopardy-style countdown round, in which the top 12 students compete against each other.MathCounts is one of the country's largest and most successful education partnerships involving volunteers, educators, industry sponsors and students. The regional competition is sponsored by the three Southern Maryland public school systems, Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative, Inc., and the National Society of Professional Engineers.
