WVU helps prepare top high school students for national math competition

Math Competition

Nineteen of the highest performing high school math students from across the state traveled to WVU to prepare for the American Regions Mathematics League national math competition held on June 3 at Penn State University. 

From May 31 to June 2, students explored different areas of competition math during sessions hosted by the WVU School of Mathematical and Data Sciences. Math instructors included Krista Bresock, Jesse Cook, Ryan Hansen, Cody Hood, Clark Metz and Gabe Tapia. 

Students also had the opportunity to explore all the University has to offer while staying at Lincoln Hall on the Evansdale Campus. 

At Penn State, the students competed against 115 teams and more than 1,600 fellow students from across the country, Canada, Honduras and South Korea. The West Virginia National Math Team finished 28th in its division.

A majority of the high school students expressed aspirations of pursuing degrees in mathematics, engineering and data science at WVU.
