    Math Team (Shadow)

    Quick – what’s the cube root of 125 multiplied by the square of 3? Before the rest of us can even touch our calculators, the members of Math Team would have come up with the answer (45). For these talented mathematicians, simple algebra is a cakewalk compared to the complicated calculus problems they face every Tuesday after school in practice at P_. On Wednesday, Jan. 13, Math Team sent 20 members to San Marino High School to participate in _________.
    (Information about tournament to come)

    Math Team did well at their first tournament of 2010, placing ____, behind ____. (More info about placing). Congratulations on a job well done!

    On Wednesday, Jan. 13, Math Team sent 20 members to San Marino High School to participate in _________. All members had to take a written tryout a few weeks before the competition to be selected for one of the two teams – Team A and Team B.

    Quick – what’s the cube root of 125 multiplied by the square of 3? Before the rest of us can even touch our calculators, the members of Math Team would have come up with the answer (45). For these talented mathematicians, simple algebra is a cakewalk compared to the complicated calculus problems they grapple with every Tuesday after school in practice at P__. Calculus isn’t the only thing they do, however. Math Team deals with everything from basic geometry to math that surpasses what regular high schools cover. Their dedication to the field of mathematics leads to exemplary results, not only in their own individual math classes, but also at their tournaments.

    Commitment is a key factor in the prosperity of any academic team, and Math Team is no exception. Their members work hard in school as well by themselves, to fully understand the complicated subject matter. A lot of the material they learn is not covered in a regular high school math class, and as such, requires more individual study and practice from each member. Despite this added pressure, nobody has let the team down. The day before their second Bay Math League (BML) meet, captain Pallavi Bugga confidently stated, “The team is well-prepared, and they seemed to have grasped an understanding of many of the topics that they will be tested on, as seen from practice tests and presentations.”

    On Wednesday, Jan. 13, Math Team went to San Marino High School to co-host their first tournament of 2010, the second Bay Math League meet. A few weeks prior to this competition, members took a written tryout test to qualify for either Team A or Team B, with ten members in each team. Although over 30 members of Math Team actually competed at San Marino, only the scores of those 20 people in Team A and Team B was counted toward the overall score. “Going to get a good quote from someone here.”

    Math Team came in third this competition, behind _______ and ___________. However, because of their 15 point lead from the first BML meet last November, they are still first in the league by 3 points. It seems like their practice and hard work do pay off well in the long run. Math Team’s next tournament will be _________ at ______________.

    Good luck for the rest of 2010!

    BTW, the other revision was by me too - I just didn't notice it was still logged on to Amy's account.

    Quick – what’s the cube root of 125 multiplied by the square of 3? Before the rest of us can even touch our calculators, the members of Math Team would have come up with the answer (45). For these talented mathematicians, simple algebra is a cakewalk compared to the complicated calculus problems they grapple with every Tuesday after school in practice at P-2. Calculus isn’t the only thing they do, however. Math Team deals with everything from basic geometry to math that surpasses what regular high schools cover. Their dedication to the field of mathematics leads to exemplary results, not only in their own individual math classes, but also at their tournaments.

Although over 30 members of Math Team actually competed at San Marino, only the scores of those 20 people in Team A and Team B was counted toward the overall score.

    Math Team scored 272 points total, coming in third this competition, behind San Marino and Peninsula. However, because of their 15 point lead from the first BML meet last November, they are still hanging on to their first-place position in the league by three points. “The experience was very enriching, and it was a pretty fun competition. But we’re going to have to step it up even more to maintain our lead for the next meet”, said sophomore James Cheng. Math Team’s next BML tournament will be Mar. 17 at West Torrance, followed three days later by Math Day at the Beach, at Cal State Long Beach.

    Good luck for the rest of 2010!
