Mu Alpha Theta regional competitions

by Arjun Chandar (Sunday, December 14, 2008 11:03 AM )

Hey everybody,

Just a reminder that all of you agreed to participate in at least one FAMAT regional competition this year. The first regional Invitational is Jan 31st. The other two may be more of a problem: one is in February during our winter break, and the third is in March; we may not do it because of spring break and SATs. All of you need to let Mr. Bronish know ASAP if you will attend the one in January. We will decide during our next meeting if we want to go to the other two.

On Saturday, January 10th, we will have a head-to-head competition at MCDS against Pinecrest Mu Alpha Theta. This will be a practice for the regional MAT's. Everyone is expected to attend this. Time to be announced. Let Mr. Bronish know if there are any complications.

Mr. Bronish has all of the certificates now, so we will have an induction ceremony soon- stay tuned.

Finally, here are the results from the Log I Contest:

Theta Division
Zach Berger - 45
Alan Herskowich - 38

Mu Division
Arjun Chandar - 37
Max Kirkpatrick - 32

Alpha Division
Josh Aronson - 28
Marissa Bolton/Alex Singer - 15

These scores will be noramlized by Log I and entered into the year long contest. The next round topics are
a) Geometry (anything is possible) b) Number Theory. We will have to predetermine which we are going to do.


Thanks,

Max and Arjun
