The NIC math competition is held on the first Tuesday of November. It is an all-day event that offers students a chance to show off their mathematical problem solving skills. An understanding of Algebra through basic Calculus is helpful but many students are in Algebra II or Precalculus. We take the top 20 math students with priority given to students in Calculus working down to Algebra II. Many students are also on the Academic Team and use study lab to practice/prepare for the event.
There are winners selected in the ‘senior’ division and the ‘non-senior’ division. These students win things like ipods or graphing calculators and scholarships to NIC. The scores are compiled and the top school’s earn trophies and bragging rights.
If interested, talk to your math instructor at Charter (or Mr. Gabrielsen).
