BC Schools Math Contest returnsPosted: February 21, 2012
College of the Rockies, the Kootenay Rockies Innovation Council, School District #5 and the Kootenay News Advertiser are sponsoring the 16th annual BC Secondary School Mathematics Contest for the East Kootenay region.
The math contest is open to all Grade 8 through 12 students in middle, junior or senior secondary schools in the region served by College of the Rockies: Cranbrook, Creston, Fernie, Golden, Invermere and Kimberley.
“There are many mathematics contests intended for gifted students; this one is aimed at average students who are interested in mathematics,” noted Dr. Jim Bailey COTR math instructor. “Although this is the 16th annual contest,” Dr. Bailey continued, “This is the first time College of the Rockies has hosted the finals.”
Weekly practice problems are being published on a Facebook page: BCSSMC-East Kootenay Region-2012.
The preliminary round will be written on Wednesday, April 4 in the schools and the final round will be written on Tuesday, May 8 at the Cranbrook Campus of College of the Rockies. Each participant in the final round will receive a t-shirt and there will be prizes for the winners.
For more information contact Jim Bailey at College of the Rockies: 250-489-2751 ext. 3428.
