High County Math Tournament on April 10th
The High Country Math Tournament for students in grades 4-6 will be held from 9:00am -1:30pm on Thursday, April 10th, 2014 at the Plemmons Student Union on the campus of Appalachian State, Boone, NC. Area schools and home school groups are invited to register 5-member teams of students to compete face-to-face.
The opportunity for students to grow mathematically is unsurpassed, the problems are clever, engaging, and challenging, and the atmosphere is exciting for student and teacher alike. There will be both individual and team competitions and awards will be given accordingly. Hosted by the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Appalachian State University, this tournament will accept up to thirty teams of 5 students each from Watauga County and the surrounding area.
The registration deadline is March 31st. The invitation and registration form is attached below. Since space is limited and acceptance is on a first-come, first-registered basis, schools should enroll all their teams as quickly as possible.
