Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Cassville Intermediate School recognized its math olympiads. The students were among 120,000 worldwide to participate in the math olympiad program this year. The students competed in a series of five monthly contests of five problems each, from November to March, and weekly practice sessions under the supervision and coaching of teachers. The students learned to solve unusual and difficult problems and to think creatively. Students were awarded prizes based on scores. Elizabeth Ray was the top scorer for the team and received a trophy. Students Chloe Moeller and Kasen Holman received an embroidered patch for scoring in the top 50 percent of all participants.
