Riverview student advances to state MathCounts

Posted February 12, 2018

Five members of the Riverview Middle School Math Club participated in a regional MathCounts competition, where eighth-grader Matt Sheridan placed fifth overall to advance to state-level competition

Other Riverview students who participated in the event, held Feb. 3 at Acuity in Sheboygan, include Erynn Kletzien, Forest Olsen, Nick Shircel and Reed Gahagan. The Riverview Math Team is coached by teachers Jessica Barrington and Billie Rau, with help from Judy Dykstra.

MathCounts competitions are designed to be completed in approximately three hours. Each competition consists of:

  • A Sprint Round of 30 questions to be completed in 40 minutes
  • A Target Round of eight questions given in pairs, with students having 6 minutes to complete each pair
  • A Team Round of 10 problems to be solved together for 20 minutes
  • A Countdown Round, an oral head-to-head competition open to the top 25 percent individually (up to a maximum of 10)
