On March 6, 2021 members of our math honor society, Mu Alpha Theta, had the privilege of competing in a math competition at school. The University of South Alabama was gracious to still host an annual competition, albeit remotely this year due to Covid restrictions. The upside to competing remotely was the ability to compete with schools around the nation, and not just in our region.
Our students battled hard to solve the complicated mathematical puzzles and came in 3rd! Mrs. Werneth was especially proud that they were one of only three teams to “save humanity.”
Many thanks to Steven Clontz from the Department of Mathematics at South Alabama and the other mathematicians who designed the puzzles and found a way for the students to participate in this fun and unique competition. We hope to be running around their campus again next year!
2021 team members were: Emily Adcock, Ella Barnes, Georgia Byrd, Caylee Dean, Boaz Dernlan, Ashton Haygood, Maddy Stanhope, Bryant Stevens, Jules Thomas, Emma Thomasson, and Lydia Walsh.
