Pictures & explainations

During the main phase of our event, students travel around the school to different classrooms in order to complete problems with their teammates. Using a formula that contains the total number of correct questions and time to solve, we calculate the total number of points each team scores, the top 3 teams earn some awesome prizes! Each classroom tends to contain a grader(or 2) and a few teams of students as pictured here.

Students sign in before 9 am and meet up with their team members, then as the main portion of the event begins they travel around the school with their team and score as many points as possible. After that ends, the students can participate in a group of fun games, some of which are math related and others which are not. Finally, after everyone has eaten and played games, we announce our winners and hand out prizes.

The excitement is everywhere, every student races around the hallways looking for the nearest room in order to solve more questions and score more points. The high pressure and high stakes make the day an exciting and stimulating day of adventure.
