Second Annual Laurence Invitational Math Tournament
Second Annual Laurence Invitational Math Tournament


By Jennifer Kovacs, Math Specialist and Coach
 
Last Saturday was the second annual Laurence Invitational Math Tournament. One hundred fifteen students - 23 teams - from Laurence and area schools, including Curtis, The Center for Early Education, Echo Horizon, Polytechnic, St. Mark's, St. James, and High Point Academy, competed in individual and team rounds. The tournament was created by Laurence Math Coaches Jennifer Kovacs and Lauren Cantrell, with original math problems created by Cathy Hoyt, math specialist. These problems were challenging, testing students' abilities to problem solve with creativity and ingenuity.  In addition to our 50 Laurence Mathletes who competed in the tournament, five Class of 2018 alumni (and former Mathletes) came to help administer the tournament.
 
A special congratulations to all of our Mathletes who placed in the tournament!
