22nd Annual High School Math Contest

Dr. Calhoun deals a "Game of 24"

The 22nd Annual High School Math Contest was held on Nov 12, 2019 with 168 students from 18 schools attending.  The annual competition is sponsored by the Mathematics and Digital Sciences Department (MADS) and the COST Dean's office and organized by Dr. Lisa Lister, associate professor of MADS.  This popular competition consists of three different categories or games.

The "Quiz Bowl" is a timed head to head match up between 2 teams.  The teams with the highest scores advance to the next round.  The "Brainteasers" game involves brainteasers in a test-like format and the scores of individual players are combined for an overall team score.  The "Game of 24" involves a dealer who deals out four cards from a standard deck. The teams must try to get the number 24 through addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of the numbers on the cards.
