Dear Students and Sponsors,

 

The UNC Charlotte Mathematics Department is pleased to announce the results of the Algebra II and Comprehensive Mathematics Contests of Super Competition Day 2005. We had 170 comprehensive mathematics student participants from 19 schools and 80 algebra participants from 13 schools. The students heard a great talk by Mark Ginn

Associate Professor and Assistant Chair, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Appalachian State University entitled Football and Graph Theory.

 

 

The Comprehensive contest had 30 multiple choice questions and the algebra test consisted of 27 multiple choice questions. The top two comprehensive students were Yutong Chen and Kevin Lang, both from Myers Park High. Drew Boyuka, Jim Manning and Jenny Chen were third through fifth, respectively. The top algebra student was Haotian Liu of Providence High School.

The Comprehensive problems and solutions can be found at Comprehensive Problems 2006 and Comprehensive Solutions 2006.

The Algebra problems and solutions can be found at Algebra Problems 2006 and Algebra Solutions 2006.

 

Certificates for Art of Problem Solving courses were presented to the top student in each division. Book awards were presented to the students who qualified for the state mathematics contest runoffs (22 in all qualified). Qualifiers, please see http://courses.ncssm.edu/goebel/statecon/state.htm.  Trophies went to the top five students in each category. Team trophies went to school winners in two categories: inside Mecklenburg County and outside Mecklenburg County based on the sum of the top five students' scores. The team results are listed below.
